Semperis Strengthens Active Directory Protection in Asia-Pacific Market with Expansion Plans Accelerated by Strategic Channel Appointment
HOBOKEN, NJ–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Semperis, the pioneer of identity-driven cyber-resilience for enterprises has accelerated the expansion of its hybrid identity protection solutions in the Asia-Pacific region by onboarding Jacquie Young, an APAC channel leader with 26 years of experience background in selling technology and cybersecurity, as director of channels. Building on momentum from Semperis’ KKR-led $200m Series C funding round — among the largest cybersecurity raises in 2022 — the company’s rapid expansion into APAC will expand availability of its award-winning Identity Threat Detection and Response (ITDR) system and cyber-first recovery solutions at a time when identity-related cyber threats in the region, as in the rest of the world, continue to increase.
Young’s appointment is a key part of Semperis’ strategy to strengthen its 100% channel-driven sales model by building partnerships in Asia-Pacific and supporting partners with tools, training, qualified leads and common commercial support. Recognized by the Financial Times as the fastest growing cybersecurity company in America, Semperis plans to double its workforce in the APAC region over the next year to meet market demands and current customer needs.
“I joined Semperis at an exciting time,” said Young. “Semperis continues to be recognized in the cybersecurity industry for its innovative approach to protecting organizations’ hybrid identity environments before, during and after an attack. The technology is backed by an in-house team with proven AD skills, including over 100 years of collective Microsoft MVP experience, making Semperis a trusted resource and advisor to partners who provide cybersecurity services and solutions to their clients. The APAC market is primed for the unparalleled identity threat defense solutions provided by Semperis. APAC organizations are already recognizing the need to protect their identity infrastructures and improve cyber resilience. This is a critical time, and Semperis is in a strong position to make a real difference.
APAC countries are 80% more likely be the target of a cyberattack than countries in other parts of the world. Moreover, the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC) reported that there was an APAC workforce shortage of approximately 1.42 million in the cybersecurity industry in 2021. Education and awareness on how to improve resilience to cyberattacks focused on identity is an essential element of the Semperis offer. Last year, the company launched purple knighta free security assessment tool with over 5,000 users designed to combat systemic attacks exploiting AD and Azure AD vulnerabilities.
“Bringing on a cybersecurity industry leader with the experience of Jacquie Young underscores our commitment to rapidly expanding comprehensive hybrid identity protection in APAC through our network of channels,” said Dave Evans, Vice President of Semperis, Global Channels & Alliances. “We know that organizations in this region, as in other parts of the world, are struggling to defend against the current onslaught of identity-based cyberattacks. With Jacquie’s leadership, we will accelerate our ability to support our channel partners in the fight against attacks that threaten their customers’ businesses. »
