Zane Lockley has been appointed to the newly created position of ANZ channel director.
Lockley will be responsible for building and managing relationships with partners in the region who can assist Varonis customers in securing their most valuable data.
"I'm looking forward to strengthening Varonis' existing partner relationships, specifically in the Government, Healthcare and Financial Services sectors, and seeking out new partners to build up our network. I will seek out partnerships that are ideal fits for both parties, enabling us to jointly access new markets and seize opportunities across ANZ," Lockley says.
Based in Sydney, Lockley joins Varonis from Proofpoint, where he was most recently Asia Pacific cloud and MSP senior manager.
In this role, Lockley successfully grew the business, consistently achieving strong year-on-year growth up to 132%. Before Proofpoint, he was a Webroot channel account manager and a Verizon business development representative before that.
"100% of our business flows via channel partners, who are key to ensuring that our customers get the most out of their Varonis data security investments," Varonis Asia Pacific and Japan vice president Scott Leach says.
"Given the importance of our channel ecosystem, we felt the time was right to dedicate a resource to ensuring our partners across Australia and New Zealand were appropriately supported.
"Zane is a highly respected figure in the cybersecurity channel ecosystem, and his far-reaching network of connections will be a great asset to Varonis as we continue to invest in the channel."
