Fortanix Expands Operations in APAC

Fortanix has expanded its operations in the Asia Pacific region to continue meeting the growing global demand for its data security solutions.

The company has invested heavily in Asia Pacific, and now offers an in-region staff and a growing ecosystem of channel and distribution partners enabling Asia Pacific organizations to improve on-premises and cloud data security, while lowering costs and reducing complexity of legacy systems. Fortanix has opened a new office in Singapore to support its growing Asia Pacific customer base and attract local channel partners and distributors to its growing partner programs. The company also named Gerry Sillars vice president of Asia Pacific. Sillars most recently ran Asia Pacific for Skybox Security.

In addition, Fortanix has established a two-tier channel model to help meet its aggressive revenue goals for Asia Pacific. The company has already signed distribution contracts with NextGen Distribution Australia; NextGen Distribution New Zealand; ACA Pacific covering Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore; Vietsoft covering Vietnam; i-Value covering India; and SAARC and Info-Works covering Korea. According to the company, distribution agreements in Japan and the Philippines will be set soon. A certification program is now available for VARSs and systems integrators, with Solista of Australia being the first partner to have completed the program.
