Dave Patnaik, recently appointed Managing Director for Trend Micro Australia and New Zealand, said that “despite the economic downturn, Trend Micro's key enterprise accounts and many SMB security specialists are responding positively to its strategic focus on collaboration, virtualisation and cloud computing, expressed through its Smart Protection Network initiative.
"The Internet cloud is growing and along with it is an unprecedented volume of Web and email threats that can harm company servers, workstations and networks. Security experts predict over 25,000 new threats per hour by 2015 and our Australian customers are looking for innovative answers."
According to Dave Patnaik, Trend Micro has significantly increased its resource allocation in a new major account team to specifically support the company’s top 100 Australian customers, and more personnel have been added in the SMB & consumer business.
"We also recently opened a new Queensland office to support our growing client base there, and added service engineers in most locations nationally to provide increased technical support to all our customers.
"Since taking this role in August 2008, I've seen a definite spike in demand from companies seeking our help to manage web security threats on their network. In response, we've made significant changes to the business locally to meet customers' changing needs," Patnaik said.
