Sydney – March 3 2020: Leading US secure identity company SecureAuth will rapidly expand its presence in the Asia Pacific and Australian markets, with the appointment of experienced executive Michael Warnock as Head of Growth.
With a large telecommunications company as an anchor client in Australia, SecureAuth will bring its innovative approach to cyber and next generation technology in identity security to the Australian market, amid a slew of identity-related security issues in industries from financial services, health and transport.
Warnock joins SecureAuth with 20 years’ experience in the IT industry and was most recently Australia Country Manager for Aura Information Security where he was responsible for leading and executing the company’s sales and marketing operations.
“A one-sized fits all approaches to identity security with long-passwords has been the historic way of managing this problem unfortunately causing undue frustration, but SecureAuth is able to provide smart, agile, seamless authentication management methods for enterprises burdened by complicated environments, giving customers the choice of how they wish to authenticate,” Warnock said.
Warnock said the company sees a huge opportunity in the Australian market, with the majority of security issues related to identity. There is an increasing frequency of data breaches and an unprecedented number of compromised credentials available on the dark web, making strong employee, third party and consumer authentication a high priority for security and risk management professionals.
“One thing which businesses and consumers have in common today as they accelerate their digitalisation programs is their concern about IT security and risk, and a requirement for robust authentication.” SecureAuth is addressing this providing a suite of multi-factor & single sign on methods of secure authentication”.
“From day one we will operate via a newly created reseller community. I’m looking forward to working with our customers to ensure that robust authentication is seen as a whole-of-business concern.” Warnock said.
Martin Savitt, CEO, SecureAuth, said, “Michael has a proven track record of developing and leading highly successful sales teams. This, coupled with his experience serving the regional market, will be instrumental as SecureAuth continues to invest in and expand throughout Asia Pacific. With Michael now onboard, we’re well-positioned to accelerate our momentum and bring innovative security technology to customers throughout the region.”
