Security vendor Barracuda Networks has appointed Andrew Huntley to lead its Australian business, securing the newly created role of regional sales director for Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
He takes on the lead role after joining the cloud-enabled security and data protection solutions vendor in May 2017 as territory account manager.
“The Pacific region is an important market for Barracuda as we continue to extend our position as a cloud security and data protection solution provider,” Barracuda Networks vice president of sales for Asia Pacific James Forbes-May said.
“Andrew’s demonstrated leadership, sales and channel skills naturally align with Barracuda’s commitment to help customers use cloud innovation to safeguard their networks, data and applications.”
Prior to joining Barracuda, Huntley worked for services provider ArcServe in various roles from 2014 to 2017, and was also channel account manager for Brisbane reseller Datastor Australia from 2005 to 2014.
“As cybersecurity and data protection increasingly gain traction with businesses in the Pacific region, cloud computing is becoming the clear way forward,” Huntley said.
“We’re committed to working with our partners and customers in the best possible way to empower them to have advanced protection without impacting their day-to-day operations.”
