Cyware, the industry’s only Virtual Cyber Fusion platform provider, has opened a new Singapore office intending to expand its operations in the Asia-Pacific-Japan (APJ) market. The company has also made a point to announce the appointment of cybersecurity industry veteran Gary C. Tate as Vice President, APJ Sales.

Cyware is building up capacity and technical expertise with full force in the APJ region to bring about an unprecedented innovation in cyber fusion, threat intelligence, security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR). This will allow its rapidly growing customer base to protect their organizations from advanced attacks more effectively.

A recent Forrester report stated that over 78% of security operations personnel have expressed that working in the SOC (Security Operations Center) is very difficult. At the same time, 67% suffer from information overload and burnout.

“I’m excited to join Cyware to help organizations break down the silos that exist within the SOC and to connect intelligence to inform automated threat response at-scale,” said Tate.

He added, “The market disruption that Cyware creates is rooted in a cyber practitioner approach, and its agile product team prioritizes solving complex customer and partner challenges constantly. I’m looking forward to helping customers take an entirely different approach to optimize SecOps with Cyware’s game-changing Virtual Cyber Fusion platform.”

Gary C. Tate aims to contribute his more than 30 years of expertise in IT and security to help Cyware grow. He has been continuously working for the last ten years in the APJ region. Before this, he has held sales leadership roles at companies named Wedge Networks Inc., Cyan Inc., Cylance Inc. (acquired by Blackberry) NuoDB Inc., driving regional and international growth.

“Gary’s track record in growing a regional business from the ground up is extraordinary,” said Amit Patel, Vice President, Global Sales, Cyware.

He added, “He understands how to engage customers and partners on every level and understands how to build a team that executes. His leadership and overachieving performance at Cylance in developing the APJ market was instrumental in the company’s regional growth and brand presence. He’s built out global alliances and channel and MSSP businesses with multiple cybersecurity companies across the region. His experience will help build the Cyware brand in APJ for years to come.”
