CyberArk said it continues to invest in expanding its business in Asia Pacific, with third quarter 2015 revenues in the region more than doubling year-over-year, although it did not provide specifics.
“The addition of Vincent [Goh] to our executive team is another step forward in our strategy to build a large, global cybersecurity company and continue to grow our customer base in Asia Pacific,” said CyberArk chief executive officer Udi Mokady.
“Vincent has tremendous experience in the security industry, and is a respected leader whose passion and commitment will promote accelerated business growth in this region,” he added.
In addition to driving growth for various business portfolios within RSA, Goh chartered the transformation of RSA from an authentication-focused business to an intelligence-driven security provider in Asia Pacific, CyberArk said.
He consistently increased revenue for RSA in Asia Pacific during his tenure, the company added.
“I was drawn to CyberArk’s culture, technology innovation and relentless focus on customer success,” said Goh.
“As the market for privileged account security grows in Asia Pacific, there is a significant opportunity to work with customers who are increasingly interested in areas such as proactive controls, threat detection and analytics as part of a holistic cybersecurity programme,” he added.
Goh previously worked at companies such as EMC, AST, Dell and Iomega. He was also a member of the Republic of Singapore Airforce.
He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Technology from the National University of Ireland, Dublin, and an Executive Certificate in Management and Leadership from the MIT Sloan School of Management in Boston.
