Infoblox has announced that Cherif Sleiman is now the Vice President of its EMEA operation and will be responsible for charting the company’s business strategy across this region. This move comes as the company’s effort to expand its DNS security and hybrid cloud under Sleiman’s leadership who previously oversaw the company’s MEA business. Sleiman will be reporting to Bill McCarthy, EVP of Worldwide Field Operations.
“The EMEA region is of strategic importance to Infoblox, so finding the right leadership is critical to our ongoing success,” said McCarthy. “Cherif has done a terrific job in leading the Middle East and Africa team over the past two years. During his tenure, he helped significantly grow the regional business while developing a strong partnership model. Under his leadership and given his expertise in security and cloud solutions, I am confident that Infoblox will flourish in the EMEA region.”
“With the rising number of DDoS attacks and data breaches, DNS Security has become mandatory to ensure safe computing in service provider and enterprise networks,” said Sleiman. “Organizations must realize that ignoring DNS as a threat vector can result in damaging consequences. The recent European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims to strengthen data protection and will hold institutions responsible for any data privacy breaches. Infoblox is uniquely positioned to help organizations comply with GDPR and other data privacy regulations by delivering DNS based security measures.”
