Security vendor PGP Corporation has recruited its new Asia Pacific manager from United States network solutions firm Cavium Networks.
Jamie Brown, former sales director of Cavium,, will move to PGP's Melbourne office where he will head up the company's Australian chapter.
PGP Corporation CEO Phillip Dunkelberger said Brown will be in charge of expanding the company's local footprint in light of the government's move to tighten data protection and privacy laws.
"Jamie's global expertise in data encryption and security will be a valuable asset in delivering value to our customers and partners in the region, particularly given the current climate of greater security through increased corporate governance and stringent privacy legislation," Dunkelberger said.
Brown gained experience in data and network security through his work in intelligent processing for networks, communication, storage, and security applications.
"My role is to ensure that the company continues to gain momentum in the Asia-Pacific enterprise data protection marketplace," Brown said.
"The fact that PGP Corporation has chosen to set up a local division is timely, given the Australian government's decision to introduce mandatory data protection laws in 2008."
