Kenneth Chen has been appointed as Asia Pacific Vice President.

This promotion expands the purview and responsibilities of Chen across the Asia Pacific region, including ASEAN, South Korea, India, Australia, and New Zealand.

In this role, Chen is responsible for the business strategy, sales, and execution for ExtraHop in Asia Pacific, with a focus on expanding key partnerships and building high-performance go-to-market teams. This encompassing Asia Pacific leadership role underlines the company's commitment to international growth and expansion.

"ExtraHop has ambitious plans to redefine the network security market and streamline threat detection and response for organisations around the globe," says Patrick Dennis, CEO, ExtraHop.

"Ken understands and embodies our new approach, one that understands intrusion is inevitable but a breach doesn't have to be. Ken's business acumen and relationships across the region will help our customers and partners understand the power of their network to stop the sophisticated threats already inside their environments."

Chen joined ExtraHop in March 2022 as the Vice President of Asia, focused on the ASEAN market. During his time in this role, he doubled the team in the region, extending support for customers and partners in Asia.

"I see an incredible opportunity to help organisations elevate their cybersecurity posture and harness the power of their network to identify, investigate, and stop today's sophisticated attacks," Chen said.

"I look forward to continuing to build the company's momentum in Asia Pacific with the help of our great partners and our laser focus on customer satisfaction."

"I would like to welcome Kenneth Chen as the new Vice President of Asia Pacific for ExtraHop," said Gavin Lawless, COO, NEXTGEN.

"A veteran in the industry, along with his vast experience, we have no doubt the strong growth for ExtraHop will continue in the region.

"In Australia particularly, this conviction is firmly established under the leadership of Country Manager Rohan Langdon. Together with ExtraHop, NEXTGEN is looking forward to bringing NDR to the next level."
