Ex-Tintri exec heads up Silver Peak A/NZ business

Graham Schultz joins company as sales director for A/NZ

Hybrid WAN solution provider, Silver Peak, has hired Graham Schultz as the company’s new sales director for A/NZ.

The new role finds Schultz tasked with amplifying customer adoption and accelerating the growth of the business’ SD-WAN solutions.

Schultz joins the vendor from Tintri Storage, where he was sales director and country manager.

In July, the vendor closed its Australian operations in a move to handle all regional business out of its offices in Singapore.

Schultz also held sales roles at various vendors throughout his 20-year career including Brocade, VMware and Legato.

“This is an exciting time to be joining Silver Peak, as they are the only vendor capable of offering a complete SD-WAN solution that simply and intelligently combines any combination of connectivity types into high-performance virtual WANs that deliver an unmatched user experience edge-to-edge,” he said.

Silver Peak senior vice president worldwide sales, Chris Helfer, said he was pleased to add a "seasoned professional" to head the expanding A/NZ team.

“We are quickly establishing market leadership in the hyper growth emerging market for SD-WAN technologies that IDC predicts will grow to an estimated $US6 billion by 2020, and are confident that our A/NZ team will make an immediate impact on regional sales,” he said.

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.
