Sophos today announced appointment of Harish Chib as vice-president for its Middle East & Africa (MEA) region to lead the company’s sales and channel in the region.
Chib had been associated with Cyberoam earlier for nearly an decade, where he successfully led the channel and sales operations. Sophos acquired Cyberoam last year, and since than he has been overseeing the integration and expansion of Sophos and Cyberoam channel ecosystems across MEA.
Karl Heinz Warum, VP CEEMEA, Sophos said, “Harish’s expertise in leading and scaling sales operations and leveraging the partner ecosystem makes him the ideal leader for Sophos’ growing focus in the Middle East and Africa. His proven success with Cyberoam’s sales and channel gives him the right experience to further expand our strong sales and partner network. It is our ambition to be the vendor of choice for both endpoint and network security solutions, and under Harish’s leadership, we will bring together our channel and sales organization with the Cyberoam ecosystem and bolster sales engineering and reseller enablement initiatives in MEA.”
Commenting on his new role Chib said, “A growing number of businesses in MEA are experiencing increased digitization, however, the menace of cyber-attacks and cyber-crime is stalling their ICT adoption. Resellers from across the region have a tremendous opportunity to leverage the synergy of both Sophos and Cyberoam products in endpoint, cloud and network security to protect their customers with advanced and next generation technology from a global leader.”
