Cloud-based security firm iSheriff has announced the appointment of Simon Carr as director of sales for EMEA.
This latest appointment reflects the company’s growth strategy for expanding its local presence in the region, said the firm.
Carr will be driving sales through existing and new channel partners for iSheriff’s scalable, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution to protect endpoints, web and email.
Carr has over 15 years of senior level commercial IT experience in sales and development roles spanning both vendor and channel organisations.
He joins iSheriff from CMS Distribution and prior to that worked at Bell Micro, Ideal Hardware and Digicorp.
Carr is the latest addition to the iSheriff team and follows the recent appointment of industry veteran Carrie Roberts to the position of vice president of Global Sales.
iSheriff recently announced the release of iSheriff Complete, aimed at small and medium sized enterprises, offering a fully-integrated cyber security platform with no up-front costs and all managed through a single, easy-to-use interface with a single set of enforceable security policies.
“Faced with increasing multi-vector threats and the success of Software-as-a-Service models, companies are turning to cloud-based platforms to deliver scalable, real-time protection,” said Carr.
“iSheriff removes potential malware and viruses before they ever reach the network, allowing our customers to focus on running their business.”
John Mutch, CEO at iSheriff, commented: “Simon is a great addition to the iSheriff team. He will play a major role in empowering our resellers, distributors and integrators to meet the growing demand for robust and reliable cloud-based security solutions. High-margin revenue streams will also be a focus for us within EMEA.
“Our simple-to-use, single pane of glass platform makes deploying, configuring and running multiple security services an easy business for our partners to manage and grow.”
