Atlanta, GA – June 24, 2021 – BeyondTrust, the worldwide technology leader in Privileged Access Management, today announced that Ben Wong has been appointed Director of Channels and Alliances in APJ. Ben brings over 25 years of channels and sales experience, most recently spending three years at ForgeRock, where he led business development and channels in APJ. Prior to that role, he worked at Progress, Rhipe, Symantec and Fujitsu.
His extensive knowledge of channel, sales and go-to-market strategies, along with very relevant industry knowledge in the identity and access management industry, will prove to be an invaluable asset to BeyondTrust’s growth plans for the Asia Pacific region. Ben will drive the expansion of BeyondTrust’s value-added distributor channel and grow its systems integrator, managed service provider, and technology alliance partnerships.
According to Nick Turnbull, Senior Vice President of Sales APJ, “Hiring Ben is a huge step in the right direction for achieving our investment and growth plans in APJ. We are 100% channel-focused in this region, so to bring in all of his experience is an exciting win for BeyondTrust. With our sizeable position in the Privileged Access Management market, and a particular focus on the increasing demand for cloud offerings, we have an incredible opportunity in the APJ market, one which Ben will be helping us to capitalise on in his role here.”
Ben’s arrival will also assist BeyondTrust in achieving some of their key objectives for 2021:
- Enhance BeyondTrust’s position as the leading provider of Privileged Access Management in APJ
- Work closely with customers to help them achieve local regulatory compliance, such as Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) Technology Risk Management Guidelines (TRM)
- Continue to strengthen our channel focus with value-add distributors, VARs, local and global Sis, as well as key alliances
Ahead of Ben’s appointment, earlier this year BeyondTrust opened their new Singapore office, based on Kim Seng Promenade, Great World City West Lobby. This significant office presence will serve as an excellent base to continue to generate momentum in Asia Pacific.
