Centrify names new regional sales manager

Derek Morwood will be responsible for Australia, New Zealand and India

Unified identity management company Centrify has appointed technology industry veteran Derek Morwood as regional sales manager, responsible for Australia, New Zealand and India.

Morwood was previously employed by Lan1, Opengear, Snapgear and Stallion Technologies.

He takes on the new role after two years as internal sales representative for Centrify.

Morwood has been tasked with recruiting more partners for Centrify in Australia, New Zealand and India and appointing a new internal sales representative at Centrify’s Australian office in Brisbane.

In Australia and New Zealand, Centrify sells 100 per cent through channel partners.

The announcement follows Centrify’s recent appointment of Niall King as Senior Director APAC Sales, operating out of Centrify’s Silicon Valley head office and Japan.

Morwood said his primary focus was to support partners to win larger enterprise contracts.

“In the US, Centrify has half the Fortune 50 companies and 60-plus government agencies as clients,” he said.

“Our goal is to build our momentum to win more of these blue chip accounts in Australia and the broader region.

"My regional sales role frees me up to focus on these sorts of opportunities, both in Australia and in New Zealand, where we have a lot of great potential. I also believe India will become huge for us.”

Centrify last month announced it has become the first company in the Identity-as-a-Service market to pass the milestone of supporting more than 2000 customers in the cloud.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
