Resilient Systems, a US-based Incident Response Platform (IRP) provider, is opening a European HQ in Reading – signalling the firm says expansion in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). The company also announced two senior hires.
Paul Ayers joins the company as General Manager, EMEA, overseeing business in the region. Ayers brings almost 30 years of IT security market experience, having established operations for US software providers in EMEA – most recently for data security firm Vormetric.
Chris Neely joins as Director of Systems Engineering, EMEA, from Venafi, where he also directed systems engineering.
Ayers said: “There’s growing acceptance that organisations have to manage IT security incidents as a part of their normal business operations – and they want to ensure their response is faster, more detailed, and more organised. In a short time, Resilient Systems has led the creation of a new market for incident response to address this huge, pressing demand – and has developed a strong and growing customer base.”
Resilient Systems says that its IRP produces and manages incident response plans – automatically providing IR teams with action plans. The platform allows teams to modify their response to suit needs, adapt in real time as incidents evolve, and prioritise on critical incidents before they become full-blown crises. John Bruce, CEO and Co-Founder of Resilient Systems, said: “Despite growing concerns over today’s cyber threats, organisations globally understand they can successfully manage and mitigate the security incidents they encounter – it just requires a more proactive, effective, and consistent response capability. There’s a huge demand for effective and comprehensive response solutions – as evidenced by our rapid growth around the world and expansion in EMEA. Paul Ayers and Chris Neely have both had successful careers helping technology companies become global players, and it’s exciting to have such talent on board.”
Resilient Systems has been active in EMEA since its initial launch in the region in April 2014, under the company’s former name, Co3 Systems.
