COMPANY NEWS: Cohesity, a leader in data management and data security, announced the appointment of Victor Keong as Field Chief Information Security Officer for Asia-Pacific & Japan. Victor will play a key role in helping Cohesity’s new and existing customers build their cyber resilience and data recovery strategies, leaning on his vast experience in the cybersecurity consultancy and vendor technology advisory. 

With over three decades of international Information Security experience, Victor has a deep technical background spanning cybersecurity, data centre, and the cloud and understands how to translate challenges in these areas into board-and executive-level conversations. He spent 17 years as a partner with Deloitte in Canada, working in their Cyber Risk and Services practice, where he held several positions on Deloitte’s Cyber Risk Services’ Global Executive Management Committee, including the role of Asia-Pacific Cyber Risk Services’ Leader and Global Leader for IT Vulnerability Management. Since returning to the Asia-Pacific region 13 years ago, Victor has worked extensively with some of the largest organisations in the financial services industry, including household-name banks in Japan, Singapore, and Malaysia.

Prior to joining Cohesity, Victor was Cisco Systems’ Senior CISO Advisor for Asia-Pacific, Japan & China, and held the same role (an inaugural position) at Checkmarx. Victor brings both an innovative and empathetic perspective to the challenges that keep CISOs in the region awake at night, and he will work with existing and new customers in helping them improve their cyber resilience approach and strategies. 

"Cyberattacks, especially ransomware, are one of the top business concerns challenging C-level executives and boards, which is why I’m delighted to have Victor join our team, bringing his vast regional experience to benefit our APJ customers’ cyber resilience strategies,” said Ravi Rajendran, Vice-President, Cohesity Asia-Pacific & Japan. “Victor’s extensive background makes him a real asset for customers in not only better understanding the cyber threats and risks they face, but also helping them develop or strengthen the capabilities they require to pragmatically and effectively manage these cybersecurity challenges.”

“The opportunity to join Cohesity as the first field CISO for the Asia-Pacific and Japan region is exciting because of the unique role that we play in helping organisations better manage, protect, recover, and secure data, which has a real impact when a cyber attack occurs,” said Victor Keong, Field CISO, Cohesity Asia-Pacific & Japan. “Cyberattacks, especially ransomware, continue to proliferate in frequency and sophistication, at the same time as organisations are generating vast amounts of data that is often stored in overly complex or legacy storage environments, which is a recipe for disaster when these two trends cross paths. Adopting the right cyber resilience capabilities and strategy has never been more important, and I look forward to working with our customers throughout the region to help them on their cyber resilience journey.”

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.
