A10 Networks appoints new country head for KSA
Abdulmajeed Alobailan will spearhead the development of an A10 Networks’ Saudi Lab
A10 Networks has appointed Abdulmajeed Alobailan as the company’s new country manager for Saudi Arabia.
In his new role, Alobailan will be responsible for leading the sales and pre-sales teams, as well as planning and executing channel and marketing strategies, the company says.
Alobailan started his career at Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Saudi Arabia, managing the IT infrastructure across branches and embassies around the world. He later moved to General Authority of Civil Aviation, where his role was to leverage the cloud infrastructure across all Saudi airports, which ultimately led to him being one of the co-founders of Saudi Aviation Information Technology (SAVIT) spearheading smart airport initiatives for the aviation sector in Saudi Arabia.
Mohammed Al-Moneer, regional vice president of sales, MENA at A10 Networks said, “Abdulmajeed brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience of the technology industry. We believe that under his leadership, we will be able to expand our reach, share A10 Networks technology advantages and add even more value to Saudi Arabia’s cyber defence initiatives in the public and private sector.”
Abdulmajeed will spearhead the development of an A10 Networks’ Saudi Lab that will develop products catering to the specific needs of the local market. Another focus area will be on enablement of the Technical Assistance Centre (TAC) in Riyadh for local support to partners and customers.
“Central to our product portfolio is our drive to increase security efficacy, automate complex processes and provide intelligence, all at hyperscale, ensuring businesses can be agile and operate efficiently. Cutting-edge technologies are key to our differentiation and often the reason we are chosen over traditional vendors. I have no doubt that with strong leadership, strategic customer focus and an agile marketing plan, we will enjoy increased success in the Saudi market this year and beyond” said Alobailan.
