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

"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."
