tenablesymbolTenable Network Security has announced the appointment of Gordon Gakovic as its first country manager for Australia and New Zealand (ANZ).

Gakovic is responsible for expanding the company’s presence in the enterprise security market by growing its commercial sales and support teams, and further supporting channel partner initiatives.

“Gordon has a proven track record of developing and leading highly successful sales teams, which is exactly the kind of leadership we need as we look to build upon our significant growth in Australia and New Zealand,” said Gary Jackson, vice president APAC, Tenable. “This, coupled with his experience serving the regional market, will be instrumental as Tenable continues to invest in and expand throughout Asia Pacific. With Gordon now onboard, we’re well-positioned to accelerate our momentum and bring innovative security technology to customers throughout the region.”

Gakovic joins Tenable™ with more than 25 years of experience in the IT industry. He previously worked as managing director of ANZ at Software AG, where he was responsible for leading and executing the company’s sales and marketing operations across the region. Prior to that, he served in a number of sales leadership roles at companies such as Oracle and IBM, where he was responsible for driving sales and implementing go-to-market strategies.

“Organisations in Australia and New Zealand are using technology to give them a competitive edge in today’s market, but the rapid adoption of these new digital trends exposes them to threats and vulnerabilities,” said Gakovic. “In order to provide customers with the right security technology to address these risks, vendors and resellers must collaborate with one another to right-size the necessary products and solutions.  I’m excited to work closely with Tenable partners to deliver comprehensive cybersecurity technology to our shared customers.”
