Networking vendor Infoblox has named Kenneth Cartwright as its first channel chief for Australia and New Zealand.
Cartwright was hired out of security vendor FireEye, where he held a channel management role from 2017.
Based in Sydney, Cartwright is responsible for executing channel go-to-market strategy across the Tasman.
“ANZ is an important market for Infoblox as we continue to extend our leading position in DDI and secure cloud-managed network services,” Infoblox APJ vice president of sales Hwa Cheong Wong said.
“Kenneth’s demonstrated leadership, sales and channel skills naturally align with Infoblox’s commitment to help businesses in ANZ safeguard their networks, data and applications.”
US-based Infoblox specialises in domain name system (DNS), dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP), IP address management (all three collectively called DDI) and secure cloud-managed network services.
Cartwright was distribution and channel account manager at FireEye, where he managed the vendor’s partners across Australia. He also held various channel and sales roles with Aerohive Networks, Brocade Communications, Ruckus Wireless, Clarity Technology, Extricom and Azlan Group.
“As organisations transition from legacy networks to the cloud, secure cloud-managed network services are becoming the clear way forward, bringing next-level security, reliability and automation to on-premises, cloud and hybrid networks,” Cartwright said.
“Infoblox is committed to working with our ANZ partners and customers in the best possible way to empower them to have advanced network control and protection without impacting their day-to-day operations.”
