London - Nov 18, 2014 - Secunia, a leading provider of IT security solutions for vulnerability management, today announced the appointment of Victoria Bentham as its UK & Ireland Regional Director. Bentham will be responsible for building Secunia’s business, which is focused on delivering Software Vulnerability Management Solutions, in the UK and Ireland, and will do so through a network of skilled and dedicated resellers and system integrators.
Bentham brings more than 13 years' experience in the IT and software Industry, where she has successfully implemented channel strategies and developed new business within regional business units for Becrypt and Lawson Software. She has held a range of leadership, lead generation and customer support roles and implemented programmes covering the UK, Europe and US.
"The UK and Ireland are very important markets for Secunia and we’re delighted to be welcoming Victoria on board," said Peter Colsted, CEO, Secunia. "Her experience and proven track record will be a great asset going forward as we seek to consolidate and further grow our UK and Irish market shares."
"I look forward to building Secunia’s presence in the channel in the UK and Ireland together with our Distribution Partner, Alpha Generation, who are specialised in our solutions," says Bentham. "We are currently seeing much interest from VARs, system integrators and MSPs, who appreciate how Secunia enables them to enhance their existing service offering."
One of Bentham’s first achievements has been to establish a close collaboration with Microsoft UK which includes implementing Secunia CSI in the UK Microsoft Technology Center in Reading. The Microsoft Technology Centers (MTCs) are collaborative environments that provide access to innovative technologies and world-class expertise, enabling customers to envision, design and deploy solutions to meet their exact needs. The Secunia CSI is already deployed in 8 Microsoft Technology Centers in USA, and in Johannesburg, Moscow and Singapore.
"By introducing Secunia’s technology to the businesses visiting the Microsoft Technology Centers, Microsoft is demonstrating to System Center customers how to effectively protect IT infrastructures from vulnerabilities in non-Microsoft applications with intelligent security patching," explains Bentham.
