Kaseya's former managing director A/NZ, Dermot McCann, joined Optus Business yesterday as its enterprise sales director.

McCann confirmed to ARN that he left the IT management Cloud company at the end of the last quarter, just before Christmas.

"We had a strong quarter, and I felt it was the right time to leave and pursue an exciting opportunity elsewhere," he said.

McCann started his new role at Optus Business on Monday, but told ARN he would not be doing any formal interviews until he was settled into his new role.

McCann has been Kaseya's Australian boss for four years, and said he is proud of what he has achieved there, and leaves behind a great team. A successor has yet to be appointed.

At the time of print, Kaseya had not responded to requests for comment on the above.

McCann previously spent eight years at IBM, in a variety of leadership positions, and before that was general manager IT (CIO) at Logical Australia.

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.
