AccessData, a digital investigations and litigation support company, has recently appointed a new regional manager for its Southeast Asian operations.
Jeremy Ho, the new regional manager, will be based in the company’s newly established Asia Pacific office in Singapore.
With more than 10 years’ experience in IT security, as well as sales and technical background, Ho will be managing a multinational sales team across the ASEAN region. His job will include direct and indirect selling through channels.
In noting a “paradigm shift” in the security industry, Ho observes a transition to pro-active and intelligent systems from the more static architecture. He describes the current development stage in the industry as “excelling” in today’s landscape of advanced cyber attacks and more sophisticated threats.
The AccessData regional manager also sees other areas of business interests for the company. “Besides the typical IT security sector, we also see a lot of interest from the legal industry, auditing and law enforcement segment for our market leading litigation and e-discovery solutions,” Ho said.
To further beef up its team, AccessData also hired Geannie Tan as inside sales representative for Southeast Asia and North Asia, Matthew Green as sales engineer for Asia Pacific, Jonathan Shorter as senior international technical account manager, and Gareth Scott as international channel sales manager.
“Having Jeremy on board with his proven track record of building business and overachieving results, we are confident to expand in the region along our main business lines of cyber security, litigation and digital forensics,” said Luke Brown, vice-president for international markets, AccessData.
