There will be channel programs rolled out to look at enablement, development of the channel partners skills sets and investment to recruit partners with expertise in these particular verticals. We are looking to expand by placing local teams in major cities within ASEAN-from sales, sales operations, to pre- and post-sales support, marketing and other functions including third-party logistics centres. We look to achieve this with our channel coverage via appointment of local distributors and resellers with these expertise. We have been working on joint collaboration with government agencies and bodies to promote cyber defense and look to expand on these collaborations with the likes of CyberSecurity Malaysia, IMPACT, and Singapore Ministry of Home Affairs through outreach educational programs and more regular participation in activities such as seminars, workshops and events with the likes of IDA, MDeC, publishing and sharing technology whitepapers and other joint government initiatives et cetera.
We will also look at setting up forensic training and certification and accreditation of FireEye Solutions to enhance security practitioners knowledge and skill set in this area of solutions against advanced target attacks as well as R&D centers to provide APAC specific malware intelligence feeds to our lab. Business growth will come from investing and leveraging in our key GTM partners, helping them become successful and building intimate relationships with critical ASEAN assets that value and help build upon our security architecture.
