Cylance chases market growth, appoints new regional leader

Evan Davidson responsible for strengthening regional presence

Cylance has appointed Evan Davidson as head of Asia Pacific (APAC), transitioning the former EMEA leader as part of aggressive regional growth plans.

As vice president of APAC, Davidson will have responsibility for strengthening and expanding the security vendor’s operations throughout the region from its Singapore office.

“As one of the fastest growing security companies in the world, Cylance is committed to supporting and developing our business in Asia Pacific,” said David Castignola, chief revenue officer at Cylance.

“Evan has proven himself to be an incredibly effective and trusted vice president, responsible for driving Cylance’s expansion in the EMEA market since 2016.

"His passion for Cylance’s prevention-first, predictive security products and commitment to the company will be a significant benefit to the APAC region."

Prior to joining the vendor, Davidson served as enterprise sales director for the UK and Ireland for security firm FireEye, leaving in 2016.

“I am incredibly excited by the opportunity to lead the Asia Pacific region through the next phase of growth,” said Davidson. “With clients and partners spanning many parts of the region already we have a platform on which to build and continue helping solve many of the complex cyber security problems that exist today.”

“I believe Cylance’s capabilities in helping clients prevent cyber attacks through the use of AI, has never been more relevant.

“I look forward to helping address these challenges across the region with our growing partner base and team."

Davidson will join regional team members, including, country manager of A/NZ Jason Duerden; director of Asia Pacific channels Joe McPhillips; head of marketing in APAC Erin Fitzpatrick; and sales engineering director in APAC Robert Collins.

In November 2018, BlackBerry announced that they would acquire the AI-based cyber security vendor for US$1.4 billion, with the deal expected to close before February 2019, pending regulatory approval.
