Cyber security provider Deep Instinct has appointed Christopher Brown as regional sales manager for Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ).
Brown, who has 17 years’ experience in the IT industry, has joined the vendor's office in Sydney and will be tasked with growing the Israeli firm’s regional footprint.
He was most recently A/NZ enterprise sales manager for cyber security firm Lookout and previously spent three years at Palo Alto Networks in Sydney.
The announcement coincides with a number of business wins for Deep Instinct, including CoolDrive Autoparts, IT services provider XCentral and managed service provider IT Junction.
“The current generation of cyber security products are failing businesses because they don’t prevent first-seen threats and the most sophisticated of attacks,” Deep Instinct senior vice president of Asia Pacific Stuart Fisher said.
“Businesses need a solution that prevents threats from ever entering their environment in the first place, and not having to deal with post-infection damages. It’s the only effective line of defence they can depend on and our fast-paced growth across the region is proof of that.”
Alongside Brown, former Dell EMC security specialist Mark Arapovic has also joined Deep Instinct as sales engineering manager A/NZ.
