Netskope welcomes cybersecurity experts to the team amid Asia Pacific expansion

Netskope, a leading security cloud provider, announced their expansion into Queensland and Northern Territory regions of Australia under the leadership of Michael Kontos, their new Regional Sales Manager.

As part of this expansion, Netskope has opened an office on Queen Street in the Brisbane central business district, where they will offer training and professional accreditation for partners and end-users.

“Michael is joining at a perfect time when we are seeing unprecedented demand for the Netskope Security Cloud platform across the region,” said Tony Burnside, Vice President for Asia Pacific at Netskope.

Mr. Kontos has ten years of experience in the industry, most recently with F5 Networks, where he served as Territory Account Manager for two years and Riverbed Technology prior to that. This appointment follows the recent addition of David Fairman, former CSO of National Australia Bank, as the newest member of Netskope’s CSO team.

“Enterprises throughout the Queensland and Northern Territory regions are benefiting from digital transformation and finding that this has precipitated a massive need to adapt their security programs,” said Mr. Kontos.

Three more team members have also been added to Netskope, including Richard Batchelar, coming from Datacom with more than 25 years of experience in the cybersecurity industry, and Shaun Chaney, coming from The Instillery with seven years of experience, joining as account team members in New Zealand.

Additionally, Michael Coleman joins from FireEye with over years of experience in the cybersecurity industry, as a channel manager in Sydney. And Brett Smith, coming from F5 Networks with more than 20 years of experience in the IT sector, joins the Solutions Architect team in Brisbane.

Recently, Netskope revealed more expansion plans into Asia Pacific, with three new data centers in India. The latest data centers will extend the private cloud security network into Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai to meet unprecedented demand in the country.
