Former RSA Security Sales Director joins the company to support customers and its channel.

M86 Security has named Jason Pearce (pictured) as Director Sales Engineering in Asia Pacific. He will lead sales engineering and provide high level technical support to M86 Security's customer and channel base in APAC.

Pearce will be based in M86's new Singapore office but the company says that its focus remains on driving business in Australia and New Zealand.

"M86 Security has always held a strong position in the APAC region, considering its New Zealand heritage. I am excited about the opportunity to help accelerate our efforts in Australia and New Zealand whilst building M86 Security’s profile in Asia, further demonstrating the comprehensive capabilities of our products”, said Jason Pearce, Director Sales Engineering of Asia-Pacific, M86 Security.

He will be responsible for managing the pre-sales, systems engineering and supporting M86 channel partners throughout Asia. Pearce will also take a lead on the adoption of the recently acquired Finjan secure web gateway solutions in the region.

"My goal is to assist businesses in understanding the real potential of M86 Security's solutions and how they can best resolve their email and web security challenges,” he said.

Jeremy Hulse, VP APAC for M86 Security, added, "Jason will play a vital role in our business as we continue to build on our growth and expand our footprint in the Australian, New Zealand and broader Asia-Pacific market.”
