Riverbed has hired Charles De Jesus as its new A/NZ channel director.

The responsibilities were previously handled by A/NZ regional vice president, Ian Raper and De Jesus was appointed to drive deeper partner engagement.

He will be responsible for enabling and overseeing its partner program updates, which also includes the launch of pilot programs for managed services that will be sold via the channel.

He maintains more than 12 years industry experience previously working for NetApp, Avaya, Westcon, Optus and Nortel.

Riverbed A/NZ vice president, Keith Buckley, said De Jesus will be pivotal to the education and enablement of its partners.

“Last month we made updates to our partner program in recognition of the fact that partners are more important than ever to our growth and expansion into new markets – particularly during this age of digital transformation that is rapidly changing the business landscape,” Buckley said.

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.
