Mimecast opens SEA regional office in Singapore

Mimecast has established an office in Singapore as its regional hub for Southeast Asia (SEA).

SEA is a strategic growth market to the email security and cyber resilience company. Organisations in the region are experiencing rapid digital transformation. As cybercrime becomes a growing concern, cybersecurity is a core component for government and enterprises in their transformation journeys.

Helming the new office is Regional Vice President Stanley Hsu (top), who is tasked to help improve the cybersecurity posture of organisations and supply chains in the Asia-Pacific region.

In his new role, Hsu is responsible for building teams to help drive product revenues, increase adoption of Mimecast’s cloud-based solutions, and enhance customer success.

Hsu has more than 25 years of experience in the cybersecurity industry, holding sales and leadership positions in organisations such as EMC Software Group, McAfee, Darktrace, and Illumio.

“As employees continue to communicate in innovative ways, as they adapt to the future of work, there are increased security risks across email and collaboration tools. Mimecast is strongly positioned to support regional efforts to strengthen the defences of organisations, build resilience and create a safe digital environment to succeed,” said Stanley Hsu, Regional Vice President, SEA, Mimecast.

Mimecast will continue its regional expansion of APAC over the next few years. The demand for cybersecurity solutions is expected to come from industry sectors that are witnessing rapid digital adoption.

Mimecast aims to quickly build its channel partner ecosystem across SEA, through regional distribution. The company will work closely to align with regional value-added resellers, system integrators and managed service providers to help improve the cyber resilience posture of end-user organisations.
