Gatsios also spent more than nine years at M.Tech and also worked for Dimension Data and Corporate Express.

“Paul plays an important part in the expansion of Netpoleon in ANZ. In his previous tenure, he successfully expanded the security distribution landscape across Asia Pacific, most recently very successfully in A/NZ,” Netpoleon Group COO, Max Foo, said.

In order to stand out among other distributors in the market, Netpoleon said it “will introduce some of the best practices and principles from Macnica Networks and Netpoleon HQ including high technical staff ratio, technical enablement of partners, and internships for would-be security practitioners.”

Netpoleon was founded in 2000 and has offices across Southeast Asia including India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. Some of its value-add offerings include pre- and post-sales services and cybersecurity advisory services. 

In 2017, Netpoleon entered into an equity partnership with network security distributor, Macnica Networks.
