Murphy’s appointment heralds a return to Arbor, the security division of Netscout. He previously worked for Arbor 10 years ago and also has security technology sales experience in large enterprises and service providers across Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific.
Murphy previously worked as general manager for IT risk at Southern Cross Protection, at Tufin, RSA, the security division of EMC, as well as with Earthwave and Cisco.
Murphy will be based at Netscout’s Flinders Street offices in Melbourne and will travel regularly to Arbor’s Sydney development centre in Castlereagh Street and its offices in Auckland’s CBD.
“We now have a constantly evolving threat environment with steady increases in attack size and complexity over the past decade. Arbor’s network insights help customers identify, understand and solve the most complex and consequential security challenges facing their organisations today.
"Tim’s extensive business development and sales experience in security technology will enable Arbor to build on this success. We’re excited to have a respected industry leader of Tim’s calibre on board.”
“This is an exciting time to be coming back to Arbor as the company has made a real impact in Australia and New Zealand since I left in 2007, particularly its penetration into the enterprise space from its more traditional network provider market,” Murphy says.
“The acquisition of Packetloop and its alliance with Cisco have also significantly expanded its relevance in the market.”
