New Delhi [India], Mar. 5 (ANI): Skybox Security, a cyber-security management provider, announced the appointment of Gerry Sillars as Vice President of the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.

In his role, Sillars will be the cornerstone of the company's APAC operations, focusing on the continued expansion of Skybox's footprint in the entire region, as well as evolving the company's channel business.

Skybox experienced 433 percent year-over-year growth in APAC for 2017 - including 350 percent growth in India. Sillars will increase hiring in APAC to further support the needs of customers and build on the company's foundation of business. He will also focus on expanding regional distribution through resellers, system integrators and managed security service providers.

Prior to this, Sillars served in various positions in APAC, including in companies as Commvault Systems, Alcatel Lucent and UpGuard. In his last two years, he served as the Worldwide VP of Commvault's Cloud Solutions Group where he built the Commvault Global Systems Integrator group in India and developed the regional business from the ground up.

"The Skybox platform serves a huge market need in this region, as there is a real thirst for solutions that simplify and automate day-to-day cybersecurity workflows and processes, especially as networks are increasing in size and getting more complex. Companies are quickly moving workloads to the cloud - or jumping to a cloud-first solution altogether. This is making the CISO's job evermore challenging. They're looking for a platform like Skybox that gives them a single view to their hybrid networks, and a way to easily manage and quickly address risk," said Sillars.

Skybox Security also appointed Rahul Arora as the new Regional Sales Director for India and SAARC.

Prior to joining Skybox, Arora worked with Citrix as the Director of Cloud Networking for India, running their Netscaler business in the region. Previous to that, he worked for SevOne Inc., as the Regional Director for India and SAARC where he built and ran Akamai's Enterprise group in India. (ANI)
