WALTHAM, Mass., August 27, 2012 – Verdasys, a leading provider of Enterprise Information Protection solutions and managed services for midsize and large companies, today announced the appointment of Yuji Ohashi to country manager for Japan, and also a strategic partnership with RTM Asia to help drive expansion across the Asia Pacific Region (APAC).
The moves mark a progression of Verdasys' APAC resources from a single office serving Japan and Taiwan into a wider network that can take advantage of Ohashi's experience within Japan and RTM Asia’s marketing and sales networks across the region, where the company is experiencing exceptional growth.
"Information protection is becoming increasingly important to global enterprises, and success in Asia-Pacific is critical to our business," said Dennis Allan, Senior Vice President, Global Field Operations, Verdasys. "As we expand through all of APAC, we needed an experienced country manager whose full attention could be devoted to the Japanese market. Meanwhile, it became increasingly important to partner with an established firm with resources across the entire region. Yuji Ohashi and RTM Asia meet those criteria, and I am pleased to welcome them to the Verdasys team."
After working in system design and development on IBM mainframes, Ohashi brings to Verdasys 23 years of experience in the IT industry, including 17 years in sales management at Cisco and Foundry Networks. Most recently, his expertise in marketing, channel development and customer relationships helped web security company Blue Coat exceed its growth objectives in Japan's high tech industry.
RTM Asia brings to Verdasys a wide and deep network of partners and experts to manage relationships and drive sales throughout APAC. Specializing in increasing American software companies' sales in the region, RTM Asia will enhance Verdasys' presence in Taiwan and expand the company's coverage into South Korea, Southeast Asia and China.
