Robbie Upcroft has parted ways with Webroot, leaving his role as Managing Director of Asia Pacific.

Having been in the role since March 2015, ARN can confirm that the former General Manager of Arrow Australia and New Zealand has left the vendor with immediate effect.

“We appreciate the work Robbie did for our company, and we wish him the best," a Webroot statement read.

"Webroot is committed to the ANZ market, and VP of worldwide Business sales Charlie Tomeo will take the lead for this region going forward."

Upcroft joined Webroot following an internal company restructure, with the vendor reducing its sales team from 14 to four employees in the region.

During his time at the company, Upcroft was tasked with rebuilding Webroot’s go-to-market strategy for the wider Asia Pacific region, bringing on board five new representatives.

According to social media, Upcroft has “more than doubled the number of managed service providers transacting with Webroot in the ANZ channel" during his tenure.

Prior to Webroot and Arrow, Upcroft also worked in channel-focused roles for McAfee and Microsoft.

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.
