Endpoint protection solutions provider Malwarebytes has announced the appointment of Dani Ferguson to the role of Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) MSP channel account manager.

Malwarebytes continues to work on capturing local market share with its product offerings for ANZ businesses.

In her role, Ferguson will be a dedicated point of contact for Malwarebytes' MSPs, driving efficiencies for partners and enabling them to provide access to Malwarebytes' products and support services, as well as helping to streamline security management.

She will also be responsible for the recruitment and onboarding of new partners as the program continues to expand.

Ferguson's hire is a result of the success that the Malwarebytes' MSP program has experienced locally.

Now in its second year, the program has grown 30% quarter-over-quarter, representing 100% year-over-year growth.

This expansion has been achieved in part due to the program's multi-tiered competitive pricing which aims to deliver margins for MSPs.

To date, the program has more than 65 partners in the ANZ region, including Sentrian and Optimus Systems.

“We are thrilled to welcome Dani Ferguson to the Malwarebytes team,” says Malwarebytes ANZ channel director Vikas Uberoy.

“She joins at a very exciting time for the Malwarebytes business, with our MSP program achieving growth over the past twelve months.

“We are confident that with Dani's support we will continue to identify new opportunities to support our existing partners and bring new MSPs into the program.

Seasoned in the technology and security space, Ferguson has over 15 years' experience in the IT Industry, beginning her career at Dell Australia in both customer service and account management positions.

She has since built her security and channel credentials working with  Arrow (formerly Distribution Central) and Sophos.

Ferguson says, “My industry experience on both sides of the channel – both distributor and vendor – has provided me with unique insights into the requirements and challenges faced by partners.

“I am excited to work with Malwarebytes' MSPs to assist them in delivering security solutions to their customers, providing assurance in the face of the changing global threat landscape, while driving efficiencies and profitability for their businesses.

Following the pilot in Australia and New Zealand, the Malwarebytes MSP Program recently launched Malwarebytes OneView in key global markets, such as the US and UK.

Malwarebytes OneView is a multi-tenant management console purpose-built to protect and remediate the MSP customer base.
