Kurt Hansen has become the new A/NZ regional director for the software security vendor.

Security software vendor, Check Point Software has hired Kurt Hansen as its new regional managing director covering A/NZ.

During his time there, he grew its A/NZ business five-fold since 2009 and transformed its sales program among its service providers across Asia Pacific.
