AttackIQ, a US-based cybersecurity company, is set to expand into a new market through the opening of regional offices in Sydney and Melbourne in Australia, as per the latest IT industry news.
Claimed to be a leading player in the continuous security validation market, the company said that Chris Zauzig, its Regional Sales Manager for APAC, and Brett Callaughan, its Systems Engineer for APAC, will be at the helm of the regional expansions.
Chris Zauzig – AttackIQ Regional Sales Manager for APAC said: “We have had a strong start quickly securing and deploying five local partnerships with Advent One, Enosys, InPhySec Security, NTT Security and Telstra.
“AttackIQ is the leader in the emerging market of continuous security validation and is not only helping to define this new category but is also setting the standards for these solutions. I am honored to lead the team in Australia and look forward to building a strong team to support our customers and the demand.”
The expansion into the Australian market is said to come after three successful quarters, said AttackIQ. Earlier this year, the cybersecurity company raised $17.6 million in Series B funding, which will help in the further development of its continuous security validation platform.
Dan Sibille – VP of Worldwide Channels at AttackIQ said: “The AttackIQ platform allows customers, both small and large, to reduce risk by taking a pre-active approach to cybersecurity.
“AttackIQ saw the demand in APAC and decided to act it on it by bringing our first international office to Australia. We look forward to working with new local partners and empowering them to find and address vulnerabilities before adversaries can find and exploit them.”
Recently, AttackIQ integrated its platform with Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) in order to help joint customers and prospects to prove the validity of the configuration and security coverage offered by the most widely used operating system.
