- Dedicated MSP Channel Manager to support the growing number of partners in the region
- MSP program achieved 30 per cent quarter-over-quarter growth, representing 100 per cent growth year-over-year in Australia and New Zealand
- Local success mirrored globally following the launch of Malwarebytes OneView for enterprise solutions
Malwarebytes has announced the appointment of Dani Ferguson to the role of MSP Channel Account Manager, Australia and New Zealand (ANZ).
The hire signals further growth for Malwarebytes in the region, as the company continues to capture local marketshare with its simple and highly effective product offering for ANZ businesses. In her role, Ferguson will be a dedicated point of contact for Malwarebytes’ growing list of MSPs, driving efficiencies for partners and enabling them to provide greater access to Malwarebytes’ products and support services, as well as helping to streamline security management. She will also be responsible for the recruitment and onboarding of new partners as the program continues to expand.
Ferguson’s hire is a direct result of the strong success that the Malwarebytes’ MSP program has experienced locally. Now in its second year, the program has grown 30 per cent quarter-over-quarter, representing 100 percent year-over-year growth. This rapid expansion has been achieved, in part, due to the program’s multi-tiered competitive pricing which delivers attractive margins for MSPs. To date, the program has more than 65 partners in the ANZ region, including leading specialists Sentrian and Optimus Systems.
“We are thrilled to welcome Dani Ferguson to the Malwarebytes team,” said Vikas Uberoy, Channel Director for Malwarebytes ANZ. “She joins at a very exciting time for the Malwarebytes business, with our MSP program achieving exponential growth over the past twelve months. We are confident that with Dani’s support we will continue to identify new opportunities to support our existing partners and bring new MSPs into the program.”
A seasoned expert in the technology and security space, Ferguson has over 15 years’ experience in the IT Industry, beginning her career at Dell Australia in both customer service and account management positions. She has since built her security and channel credentials working with Arrow (formerly Distribution Central) and Sophos.
“The commitment that Malwarebytes makes to the channel community is second to none, and that is a big part of why I joined the team,” said Dani Ferguson, MSP Channel Account Manager for Malwarebytes ANZ. “My industry experience on both sides of the channel – both distributor and vendor – has provided me with unique insights into the requirements and challenges faced by partners. I am excited to work with Malwarebytes’ MSPs to assist them in delivering industry leading security solutions to their customers, providing assurance in the face of the rapidly changing global threat landscape, while simultaneously driving efficiencies and ultimately profitability for their businesses.”
Malwarebytes’ local MSP program has also been celebrated globally. Following the successful pilot in Australia and New Zealand, the Malwarebytes MSP Program recently launched Malwarebytes OneView in key global markets, such as the US and UK. Malwarebytes OneView is a powerful multi-tenant management console purpose built to protect and remediate the MSP customer base.
