Regional sales team boosted at Optenet

Optenet : 29 April, 2009  (Company News)
Web filtering specialist recruits Regional Director for delivering expansion plans in Northern Europe
Optenet, a provider of high-performance content filtering solutions, has announced the appointment of Kevin Roberts as Regional Director Northern Europe and South Africa. A technology industry professional of international repute, Roberts brings with him 25 years experience of implementing high end technology solutions into both the enterprise and telecommunications communities throughout the globe.

Roberts joins Optenet from Cidway Securities, having previously held high-level positions with such industry heavyweights such as Webroot Software, Symantec and Enterasys Networks.

"Optenet has a compelling set of high-performance content filtering solutions for service providers and large enterprises worldwide, as typified by the recent five star review Optenet WebSecure achieved in SC Magazine," enthused Roberts. "I will be building on this industry-leading technology by adding real and sustained management value to assist Optenet's continued strategy of rapidly increasing its market penetration and positioning as a brand leader in both enterprise and telecommunications sectors in the Northern European markets."

Optenet's technology already protects 75 million end users around the globe, including customers of many of the world's leading service providers such as Orange, Vodafone and Telefónica, as well as employees of many of the world's biggest global enterprise organisations including Hilton and McDonalds.

"We already have significant telecommunications, ISP, Government, healthcare, and enterprise reference sites throughout the region, which we will be looking to leverage through both existing and new channel partners," added Roberts.

"Roberts will be responsible for maintaining our high levels of customer support and product engineering, whilst driving sales and profitability across the region through strategic partner development. He brings with him a wealth of experience in the security marketplace and a contact book that many would dream of," said Optenet's EVP of Global Sales, Michel Martin. "We feel he and the strong team around him are a key piece in helping us achieve both our near and long-time goals in the region, and furthering our already rapid market penetration."
