FORTINET − a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions – on March 20 announced that it has appointed seasoned IT executive Alex Loh (pic) as its country manager for Malaysia.
Loh will lead sales, business development and channel operations to grow Fortinet’s business in the country.
Loh, who has over two decades of experience in the IT industry, has held senior sales, marketing and operations roles in prominent technology companies including VMware, Dimension Data and Datacraft.
As a strong organisational leader with deep understanding of IT business dynamics, Loh will drive Fortinet’s mission to deliver the industry’s most innovative and highest performing cyber-security solutions to enterprises in Malaysia.
Loh will report to Peerapong Jongvibool, Fortinet’s regional director for Southeast Asia and Hong Kong.
Digital transformation has changed enterprises’ needs with regards to security – their networks now require orchestrated, end-to-end segmentation built around an adaptive security framework.
“The Malaysian cyber-security market is expanding rapidly in this digital age where software-defined networks are becoming the norm, along with BYOD and IoT. Organisations undergoing digital transformation also need security transformation, and I am excited at the opportunity to help them defend their growing digital attack surface with broad, integrated and automated solutions based on Fortinet’s Security Fabric architecture,” said Loh.
“This is especially critical as Malaysia embarks on its ‘Digital Economy’ transformation through key initiatives including Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ) and Big Data & Analytics Regional Hub.”
“Alex Loh is a proven business manager and people leader,” said Jongvibool. “I am confident that under his charge, Fortinet will further establish itself as trusted security advisor to Malaysian organisations as they seek to digitally transform themselves in the coming years.”
Loh holds an MBA and a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from Oklahoma City University.
