Tenable names Nigel Ng APAC vice president


Security vendor Tenable has appointed Nigel Ng to the role of vice president for the Asia Pacific region.

"Ng's appointment comes at a time when organisations in APAC continue to migrate business-critical functions to the cloud to support a remote and hybrid workforce, exposing a vast majority of businesses to cyber risk in the process. As such, many of these organisations are re-evaluating their security and cloud strategies," said Tenable senior vice president of worldwide sales David Feringa.

"With Nigel's long-standing industry experience, I'm confident he will be an asset in an important region like APAC as we help customers and partners strengthen their cyber defences."

Ng brings more than 30 years of IT industry experience to Tenable.

He joins the company from RSA Security where he most recently served as vice president for worldwide sales.

Ng previously worked in sales roles at EMC, CA, Xpedite International, IPC and Osborne Computers.

He started his career at Westpac as a business systems analyst.

Ng holds a bachelor's degree in informatics from Griffith University, and an MBA from the Australian Institute of Management.

In his new role of regional vice president at Tenable, Ng succeeds well-known industry figure Gary Jackson who will retire from full-time employment at the end of the year after clocking up half a century in the industry.

"As the perimeters between the corporate and home networks continue to shatter, cybersecurity must take centre stage and be viewed as a strategic business imperative and not an impediment. The stakes have never been higher as cybercriminals continue to exploit the greatly expanded attack surface," said Ng.

"I'm honoured by this opportunity to lead Tenable APAC and take over the baton from Gary. Tenable is at a very exciting juncture of its business, built upon its leadership in vulnerability management and together with my APAC team, I look forward to working with our customers and partners to secure their ongoing shift to the cloud and dynamic environments."

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.
