Proofpoint Announces New Distribution Partnerships to Drive Channel Ecosystem Growth Across the Asia Pacific Region
SYDNEY – 15 September, 2021 – Proofpoint, Inc., a leading cybersecurity and compliance company, today announced it has completed an official review of its partner ecosystem across the Asia Pacific region with the appointment of authorised distributors Ingram Micro (Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand), M.Tech (Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Indonesia, India, Malaysia, Taiwan and Australia) and ITSDI (Philippines).
“Proofpoint is committed to its 100% channel go-to market strategy, and we’re excited to build out a two-tiered distribution model to fuel our growth across the Asia Pacific theatre, expanding to new markets against growing demand for our market-leading solutions,” said Johann Ramchandra, Senior Director of APJ Channel Sales at Proofpoint. “We are continuing to develop and launch innovative products and improve and simplify our processes. We believe this will help to expand our ecosystem’s reach and allow our channel partners to grow their Proofpoint business profitably.”
As business shifts to the cloud, so have attackers. Cloud infrastructure may be highly secure, but the people who use it are often vulnerable. There’s a simple reason perimeter defences aren’t working. In today’s cloud-enabled mobile economy, there’s no longer a perimeter to defend. Work takes place on devices organisations don’t support, on infrastructure they don’t manage, and in channels they don’t own. Recognised by renown industry analysts, Proofpoint provides the most effective cybersecurity and compliance solutions to protect people across every channel including email, the web, the cloud, and social media.
“The shift to remote working has accelerated digital transformation and the move to the cloud, expanding the attack surface for enterprises. Today, cybercriminals increasingly target people within organisations rather than systems or infrastructure. This requires a mind shift from IT security teams to take a people-centric approach to cybersecurity to combat threats effectively,” said Alex Lei, Senior Vice President, APJ at Proofpoint. “Proofpoint integrates a people-centric view into its security platform to easily identify vulnerable users. This tailored approach allows us to deliver first-class protection to address the needs of enterprises that are facing a fast-evolving threat landscape.”
More than half of the Fortune 1000 companies rely on Proofpoint for people-centric security and compliance solutions that mitigate their most critical cyber risks. Proofpoint’s industry accolades include being recognised as the 2020 Premier Security Company by the CISO Choice Awards; winning “Best Email Security Solution” at the SC Awards 2021; being recognised as 2020 Australian Email Security Vendor of the Year Award by Frost & Sullivan and winning 35 accolades in the 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, including gold recognitions for Most Innovative Cybersecurity Company and Best Cybersecurity Education Provider.
Francis Choo, Global Partner Engagement & Cybersecurity - APAC, Ingram Micro:
“One key lesson of the past 18 months to the organisation’s security and IT teams is their readiness for digital adoption and security readiness in times of uncertainties. Having the addition of Proofpoint to our diverse portfolio of cybersecurity solutions and services greatly adds on the value Ingram Micro can bring to our channel partners and their customers. We are excited to work with Proofpoint and support them in their expansion to new markets and growth strategy across APAC.”
Stanley Foo, CEO at M.Tech:
“Proofpoint’s distinct people-centric approach to cybersecurity brings to users unparalleled protection against evolving cyber threats. Not only do they always stay at the forefront of the industry with their innovation, Proofpoint is recognized by experts in the field. We are tremendously thrilled to be once again appointed as their strategic and valued distributor, bringing their trusted and solid solutions to reach an even wider audience in the APAC region.”
Luichi Robles, President of ITSDI:
“With the increasing demands of cybersecurity and rapid transition to cloud data management, ITSDI continues to expand its portfolio to fully serve its clients. In our efforts to make cybersecurity easy, we have partnered with Proofpoint to protect more companies from threats in the ever-changing landscape of cybersecurity.”
