Sharifnia joins Ixia after previous roles with several companies including as regional sales director at VSS Monitoring, recently acquired by NetScout, and eastern business development manager at Radware.
He also led business development and client on-boarding for Trend Micro and NCS Group, and served as Infoblox’s ANZ country manager when the company was still in the start-up phase.
Naveen Bhat, vice-president and Asia Pacific general manager at Ixia, said, “Ixia continues to expand and diversify its product portfolio, with a focus on visibility solutions”.
Sharifnia said Ixia was at the “forefront of developing enterprise visibility, information technology testing, and security solutions for physical and virtual networks”.
“Businesses and organisations of all sizes are realising the need for these solutions, particularly in the age of increased network and cyber threats. I look forward to working with the highly-skilled team at Ixia to deliver these solutions across the region.”
