Privileged access management (PAM) solutions provider Thycotic has appointed Kris Hansen as Strategic Alliance Director, APAC.

Hansen was previously Thycotic’s Director of International MSP Sales and the company says that in his new role he will work with every major systems integrator (SI) and managed service provider (MSP) in the region to offer PAM-as-a-service to customers.

Hansen first joined Thycotic in December 2017 as Director of International MSP Sales, and relocated to Adelaide to join the company after working as Senior Product Strategist for SolarWinds MSP in Raleigh, North Carolina in the US.

Hansen, who is based in Thycotic’s Asia Pacific headquarters in Australia, said, “We want more SIs and MSPs to reach the enterprise and government customers they have agreements with.”

“Thycotic will work closely with our partners to ensure they are fully trained and certified and able to deliver successful customer implementations that comply with stringent cyber security directives, such as the Australian Signals Directorate’s Essential Eight strategies.

“Thycotic solves a key problem that the security market could not address for many years. Our PAM solutions can be deployed as a service, hosted, in the cloud, or on premises. Where you keep your secure password vault and how you manage your password security is highly flexible.”

“Hansen’s work in the global managed service channel has been well noted,” said Andrew McAllister, Vice President, APAC, for Thycotic.

“Kris’s global experience working in the U.S. and Europe makes him eminently well qualified to manage relationships with our channel partners in Australia, New Zealand and forge new relationships in APAC.”
