US-based cyber analytics vendor ExtraHop has tapped Sophos’ Tanya Hovagimian as its first channel manager for Australia and New Zealand. 

Based in Sydney, Hovagimian will be responsible for handling all aspects of ExtraHop’s channel and managed security service provider (MSSP) business, including sales and solutions strategies as well as market development.  

She is also tasked with overseeing and driving all alliance, reseller, technology and partnership initiatives. 

Previously, Hovagimian served as a major account executive for Sophos. Before then, she worked in account management roles at The Missing Link and at Avnet Technology Solutions where she held senior channel account and development management roles. Hovagimian began her IT industry career working for Lenovo and Dell. 

"It's exciting to be joining a fast-growing company with a major market opportunity that is also absolutely committed to scaling high quality partnerships to grow and enhance its customers’ cybersecurity," she said.  

"There is a great opportunity for ExtraHop as we see visibility and reporting become a key pillar within the industry. I’m looking forward to working with Nextgen in Australia and Chillisoft in New Zealand to help partners continue their journey with ExtraHop.” 

The channel was also part of the duties handed to recently appointed regional sales manager Keith Symons, who joined the vendor in March this year.

According to David Sajoto -- vice president of sales across Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) at ExtraHop -- the pandemic has heightened awareness for “robust cyber security” capabilities, with a specific focus on network detection and response.

“There has never been a more exciting time to advance ExtraHop and our value proposition through a broader community of channel partners,” Sajoto added. “We are excited to have Tanya join the ExtraHop family, bringing along their relationships and industry expertise to expand our presence in the A/NZ region."
