Absolute Software this week announced a major expansion of operations.
The Vancouver-based company now serves across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. According to Absolute, it is fuelled by the firm’s global partner network and the increasing demand for remote working security.
“Our European expansion comes as we are seeing a strong and growing customer base abroad,” said Christy Wyatt, CEO of Absolute, “with increasing interest in robust endpoint-centric security solutions to support large, scalable hybrid and remote working models.”
Following its acquisition of NetMotion last year, Absolute believes it is well-positioned to “accelerate operations and meet significant customer needs with its combined Secure Endpoint and Secure Access product portfolio.”
“We are the only resilient zero trust security provider embedded in over a half billion devices,” noted Wyatt. “By extending our capabilities more broadly across the region, we are pleased to secure more organizations, enable productivity, and reduce the overall attack surface in this new work era.”
As part of its expansion, Absolute has made “significant” investments in building out its European infrastructure with the opening of a dedicated data centre powered by Amazon Web Services. In addition, Achi Lewis, an enterprise security industry leader, has been appointed as Area Vice President of EMEA to oversee the company’s go-to-market strategy in the region.
Lewis joins Absolute Software by way of the NetMotion acquisition, where he led EMEA sales for four years. Achi is joined by a number of new hires in the region, according to Absolute.
“Absolute’s expanded presence positions us to better focus on local customer needs and support our growing network of partners and customers in the region,” said Lewis. “I am thrilled to be heading up the expansion across EMEA, and delivering resilient security solutions that will protect businesses regardless of where or how their employees are working.”
