Cloud security vendor Zscaler has appointed two regional sales directors for Australia and New Zealand.

"These new sales director appointments in the region are testament to the strengthening of our business in Australia and New Zealand and market demand for innovative security in a cloud-first world," said Zscaler APJ vice president Scott Robertson.

"At the same time, we're seeing a razor sharp focus from both public and private sector businesses on reducing risk, improving the user experience, and consolidating security point products with a cloud first lens.

"Kirk [Henzlik] and Benjamin [Weldon]'s combined and exceptional industry experience will enhance our regional capacity to support customers with these goals and to reinforce momentum for both Zscaler and our partner community."

Kirk Henzlik's territory is Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia and New Zealand.

He joins Zscaler from Workday, where he was sales director for Australia.

Henzlik previously held sales roles at Lawson Software (acquired by Infor) and Oracle Australia.

He is a graduate of Minnesota State University Mankato.

Benjamin Weldon

Benjamin Weldon will be responsible for sales in New South Wales, Queensland and the Northern Territory.

He was most recently regional sales director at AppDynamics, and previously worked in sales related roles at RSA Security and Quest Software.

Weldon holds a Bachelor of Business Management degree from Bond University.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
