Proofpoint revisits APAC distribution arrangements


Cybersecurity and compliance vendor Proofpoint has appointed Ingram Micro as a distributor for Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand; M.Tech for Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Indonesia, India, Malaysia, Taiwan and Australia; and ITSDI for the Philippines.

Restating the company's 100% channel go-to market strategy, Proofpoint senior director of APJ channel sales Johann Ramchandra said "We are continuing to develop and launch innovative products and improve and simplify our processes. We believe this will help to expand our ecosystem's reach and allow our channel partners to grow their Proofpoint business profitably."

Proofpoint APJ senior vice president Alex Lei said "The shift to remote working has accelerated digital transformation and the move to the cloud, expanding the attack surface for enterprises.Today, cybercriminals increasingly target people within organisations rather than systems or infrastructure. This requires a mind shift from IT security teams to take a people-centric approach to cybersecurity to combat threats effectively.

"Proofpoint integrates a people-centric view into its security platform to easily identify vulnerable users. This tailored approach allows us to deliver first-class protection to address the needs of enterprises that are facing a fast-evolving threat landscape."


Ingram Micro APAC global partner for engagement and cybersecurity Francis Choo said "Having the addition of Proofpoint to our diverse portfolio of cybersecurity solutions and services greatly adds on the value Ingram Micro can bring to our channel partners and their customers. We are excited to work with Proofpoint and support them in their expansion to new markets and growth strategy across APAC."

M.Tech CEO Stanley Foo said "Proofpoint's distinct people-centric approach to cybersecurity brings to users unparalleled protection against evolving cyber threats. Not only do they always stay at the forefront of the industry with their innovation, Proofpoint is recognised by experts in the field. We are tremendously thrilled to be once again appointed as their strategic and valued distributor, bringing their trusted and solid solutions to reach an even wider audience in the APAC region."
