Mumbai: Tenable has appointed former RSA’s top sales executive Nigel Ng as the new Vice President for the Asia Pacific region.
Singapore based tech industry veteran Nigel Ng will lead Tenable’s go-to-market strategy and oversee the business in the APAC region.
Ng is taking charge of Tenable’s business in this region from Gary Jackson, who will be retiring from full-time employment after serving 50 years in the technology industry.
“Ng’s appointment comes at a time when organisations in APAC continue to migrate business-critical functions to the cloud to support a remote and hybrid workforce, exposing a vast majority of businesses to cyber risk in the process. As such, many of these organisations are re-evaluating their security and cloud strategies,” said David Feringa, SVP – Worldwide Sales, Tenable.
“With Nigel’s long-standing industry experience, I’m confident he will be an asset in an important region like APAC as we help customers and partners strengthen their cyber defences,” added Feringa.
With over 30 years of IT industry experience, Ng joins Tenable from RSA Security where he was VP for Worldwide Sales. Prior to that, Ng was President of International Sales overseeing the Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) regions at the company.
“As the perimeters between the corporate and home networks continue to shatter, cybersecurity must take centre stage and be viewed as a strategic business imperative and not an impediment. The stakes have never been higher as cybercriminals continue to exploit the greatly expanded attack surface,” said Nigel Ng, VP – Asia Pacific, Tenable.
“I’m honoured by this opportunity to lead Tenable APAC and take over the baton from Gary. Tenable is at a very exciting juncture of its business, built upon its leadership in vulnerability management and together with my APAC team, I look forward to working with our customers and partners to secure their ongoing shift to the cloud and dynamic environments,” added Ng.
