Email security and cyber resilience company Mimecast Limited (MIME) announced to expand in the Asia Pacific region (APAC) by establishing an office in Singapore as a regional hub for focusing on Southeast Asia. To that end, the company appointed Stanley Hsu as its Regional Vice President to help improve the cybersecurity posture of organizations and supply chains.

In his new role, Hsu will report directly to Nick Lennon, Vice President APAC, Mimecast, and be responsible for building teams to help drive product revenues, increase adoption of Mimecast’s cloud-based solutions, and enhance customer success. 

Hsu has spent more than 25 years in the cybersecurity industry, holding sales and leadership positions in organizations such as EMC Software Group, McAfee, Darktrace, and Illumio, to name a few.

“Stanley Hsu joins us at a time when organizations are realizing the significance of cybersecurity and making it a part of their boardroom discussions. With his extensive knowledge of the industry and the region, we believe he is in a strong position to guide customers to optimize their security infrastructure, help reduce risk and increase compliance,” said Lennon. 

In the past, businesses focused only on protecting their critical assets and data. However, the hybrid working model— introduced and sustained since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic— has boosted the number of connected devices and remote workers. This has led to a larger attack surface and a greater need to educate organizations and end-users about the importance of increased vigilance. As security leaders work to mitigate risk and replace legacy solutions, Mimecast is a valuable partner to help them solve the number one threat vector: email.

Mimecast is in a solid position to serve the businesses of APAC with its global, leading email security and resilience solutions. The company’s experience in supporting tens of thousands of organizations globally. This includes over 20,000 customers who require resilience solutions for Microsoft 365 and other email solutions, making them a vendor of choice for businesses in the region. 

“Mimecast is strongly positioned to support regional efforts to strengthen the defenses of organizations, build resilience and create a safe digital environment to succeed,” said Stanley Hsu, Regional Vice President, SEA, Mimecast. 

Over the next few years, Mimecast will continue its regional expansion of APAC. The demand for cybersecurity solutions is expected to come from industry sectors witnessing rapid digital adoption. 

Mimecast aims to quickly build its channel partner ecosystem across SEA through regional distribution. In addition, the company will work closely to align with regional Value-Added Resellers, System Integrators, and Managed Service Providers to help improve the cyber resilience posture of end-user organizations.
