​New A/NZ chief on board as NetApp promotes from within

Storage vendor hands trans-Tasman reins to Glenn McPherson.

NetApp has handed the reins to Glenn McPherson as managing director across Australia and New Zealand, replacing Steve Manley at a local level.

McPherson was previously regional sales director for Victoria, NSW and Service Provider Districts, and takes over from Manley following his move to a regional role.

Prior to joining the storage vendor in 2012, McPherson held various regional and account director roles at Cisco, Genesys, Telstra, and HP.

Meanwhile, Manley now holds responsibility for the wider southeast Asian nations, alongside Australia and New Zealand.

The appointment follows news earlier this year that the vendor would be cutting 12 per cent of its workforce globally.

At the time, NetApp said the cuts were part of a strategy “to streamline its core business and reduce operating expenses.”

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.
