Armis has launched a new Asia Pacific (APAC) office in Melbourne, building on its current customer and channel partner bases.
Armis, the only cybersecurity company to provide complete visibility, vulnerability detection, and risk management to all devices from managed to unmanaged and IoT, including OT, IT, ICS IIoT & IoMT has hired nine technical and sales roles in recent months, with former Nutanix manager Andrew Draper as its APAC lead.
“I have been privileged to work with Armis in leading a great team in the Asia Pacific region and having an office I am proud to call home right here in Melbourne,” said Draper.
“I believe the Armis approach of providing intelligence and insights for our customers to identify and secure any connected devices across any ecosystem, gives organizations the power to do business as usual without any worry or obscurity.
“With Armis technologies, we have been successful in helping clients in diverse industries in Australia, whether healthcare, mining, critical infrastructures, government, e-commerce, transportation or energy, to bring complete visibility and peace of mind to managing their business and focusing on growth.”
In total, Armis has around nine channel and integrator partners in Australia.
They are: Content Security, Baidam Solutions, Fujitsu, RIoT Solutions, Equate Technologies, IPsec, Murdoch Webster, Outcomex and the distributor Sektor.
Although Draper was hired in October 2020, the launch of the physical office was delayed by several months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the company now is looking to ramp up its local recruitment and customer acquisition.
The Australian team is also supported across the wider APAC operation by staff in Japan and Singapore.
As well as local partners, Armis works globally with the following vendors and global systems integrators: IBM, CrowdStrike, Deloitte, PwC, Accenture, Check Point, Gigamon, Capgemini, Optiv, mCloud, Cyvatar and more.
