“I look forward to leading our team as we build out this business across EMEA,” said Baghdadi. “We are fortunate to have successful Cyber Security businesses in many other regions across the globe and we will work closely with our colleagues to share best practices, including strategies on how to help our partners easily expand into this high-value market. We will also leverage Ingram Micro’s proprietary Cloud Marketplace, enabling our customers to obtain subscription-based security services, while opening up more than three million active subscribers to our Cyber Security vendor partners.”

“Cyber Security solutions are in high demand across EMEA and Ingram Micro is well-positioned to leverage our trusted relationships with our customer and vendor partners throughout the region to support their needs,” said Mark Snider, Ingram Micro executive vice president and group president EMEA. “We are making significant investments across the region, including in our go-to-market capabilities, to build out this business and we look forward to quickly becoming the solutions provider of choice for EMEA Cyber Security offerings.”
