IronKey has announced the appointment of Tony Stratton from Sophos as Regional Manager for Australia and New Zealand, as the company begins plans to bolster its channel presence.
Based in Sydney, Stratton is responsible for growing the IronKey business and revenue across Australia and New Zealand for the IronKey Workspace and IronKey secure storage USB devices.
In addition, Stratton will also be responsible for enhancing and managing a certified partner channel.
“IronKey helps organisations ensure that employees, partners and contractors are using mobile workspaces created, secured and managed by IT,” Stratton says.
Citing its flagship IronKey Windows To Go solution, Stratton says the offering acts as a secure or standardised container, one in which IT can provide a monitored and controlled Windows environment to run a specific application or service such as a Citrix Client, VPN, SaaS apps such as Office 365 or a dedicated application.
“IronKey Windows To Go devices offer Australian and New Zealand businesses and government departments the opportunity to mitigate risk while boosting productivity for their mobile workforce as well as allowing IT departments to manage encrypted devices so that they can track and ultimately destroy any data which is lost or stolen,” Stratton adds.
“With data security increasingly at the top of business conversations, I’m looking forward to working with our channel partners to offer customers, whether they be a financial services firm, a health department or an education institution, a range of mobile devices with all the feature functionality they require for a safe workspace with competitive pricing all backed by the support of a robust regional channel network.”
Stratton has more than 20 years of experience in the IT industry and joins IronKey from Sophos where he was a Senior Enterprise Account Executive with responsibility for large customer accounts throughout New South Wales.
