Varonis Systems has announced it has appointed Zane Lockley to the newly created position of Channel Director ANZ. Zane will be responsible for building and managing relationships with partners in the region who can assist Varonis customers in securing their most valuable data.
Commenting on his new role, Zane said, “I’m looking forward to strengthening Varonis’ existing partner relationships, specifically in the Government, Healthcare and Financial Services sectors, and seeking out new partners to build up our network. I will seek out partnerships that are ideal fits for both parties, enabling us to jointly access new markets and seize opportunities across ANZ.”
Based in Sydney, Zane joins Varonis from Proofpoint, where he was most recently the Senior Manager, Cloud & MSP for the Asia Pacific region. In this role Zane successfully grew the business, consistently achieving strong year-on-year growth up to 132%. Prior to Proofpoint, he was a Channel Account Manager at Webroot and a Business Development Representative for Verizon before that.
Scott Leach, Vice President of APJ at Varonis said “100% of our business flows via channel partners, who are key to ensuring that our customers get the most out of their Varonis data security investments. Given the importance of our channel ecosystem, we felt the time was right to dedicate a resource to ensuring our partners across Australia and New Zealand were appropriately supported. Zane is a highly respected figure in the cybersecurity channel ecosystem, and his far-reaching network of connections will be a great asset to Varonis as we continue to invest in the channel”.
