By  Aasha Bodhani Published  March 31, 2016

Malware prevention and remediation provider, Malwarebytes, announced it has appointed Christopher Green to lead the company's expansion in the Middle East.

His most recent role was as divisional director for Westcon Group overseeing its security practice since 2012. Prior to that, he spent seven years at Avnet Middle East, setting up its operations and building the component distribution and HP ESSN businesses.

Green will take on the role as regional director in the Middle East, where he will bring his background in IT security and experience in planning and executing go-to-market strategies with his main objective being to develop a successful two-tiered channel across the region.

"I am delighted to be joining the Malwarebytes team, this is cutting edge technology in the endpoint security space," said Green. "I believe we have a fantastic opportunity to make the endpoint the starting point for any layered security approach." 

Anthony O'Mara, Malwarebytes Vice President of EMEA added: "We are delighted that Christopher has decided to join Malwarebytes and lead our expansion in the territory. The Middle East is an important part of our EMEA sales strategy and having someone of Christopher's experience and deep knowledge of two tier channels is only going to accelerate our expansion."

The global firm, which is based in Santa Clara, California, will start operations in Dubai in April.
