NextLabs Continues Global Expansion with Launch of UK Operation and Leader for EMEA
San Mateo, CA – November 15, 2016 – NextLabs, a leading provider of data-centric security software to protect business critical data and applications, announced their European expansion with the launch of a new operation in the UK and the hiring of enterprise industry veteran Mark Clark to run EMEA operations. The company is headquartered in San Mateo, CA with offices around the world, including Singapore and Malaysia.
The addition of the UK operation comes as business opportunities in Europe are growing significantly across all industries. This reflects the importance organizations are placing on protecting data and safeguarding information sharing. As regulations and data security challenges increase and become more complex to implement, organizations are looking to a new breed of security software that can scale quickly to prevent violations and automate a vast collection of data security policies and procedures to consistently control, monitor, and audit information handling activities. NextLabs has developed a very strong partnership with SAP and Siemens, and the growth in demand of the joint solutions with SAP and Siemens is requiring more local presence. “SAP is extremely excited that our partner, NextLabs, is currently launching their EMEA operation in London,” said Chris Johnson, VP, Sales, SAP GRC EMEA. “It is widely accepted that the next generation of data security and access management solutions will be ‘attribute-based’ and hence, the SAP GRC suite is emboldened through the close partnership with NextLabs. Security is of the utmost concern to most of our customers and it is vital to us that we can offer the latest technologies and innovations to answer modern business challenges.”
To successfully manage and drive demand and customer engagement in EMEA, NextLabs has hired Mark Clark, who has held Executive and senior positions at Imprivata, Hitachi Data Systems and EMC. Mr. Clark will be responsible for scaling the EMEA business, including building the sales team and working closely with partners to drive sustainable growth. “I am delighted to be joining NextLabs at an exciting time in the company’s growth and look forward to extending NextLabs technology leadership and strong market position into the EMEA region; we have a tremendous opportunity to expand our business into both established and new markets across EMEA.”
The expansion into EMEA provides global coverage for our customers and partners to allow NextLabs to better meet the growing demands of the next generation data security software to combat cyber threats and protect critical digital assets. “We are proud to be in the position to take another major step forward in establishing NextLabs as a truly global player in the data-centric security arena”, said Keng Lim, CEO, NextLabs. “With the addition of Mark Clark to our team, we are ready and able to quickly scale our European business and ensure that our customers in EMEA are well served.”
