Michael Bovalino has been appointed as Australia and New Zealand Country Manager.

Based in Melbourne, Bovalino has more than 20 years of experience in sales, business development and customer account management in the IT industry. He will be responsible for accelerating customer and revenue growth, overseeing account management and working closely with LogRhythm's channel partners to ensure the delivery of robust security posture for end-user enterprise and public sector organisations.

Bovalino originally joined LogRhythm more than three years ago as Regional Sales Manager in Melbourne, during which time he has been responsible for accelerating LogRhythm's market presence in Victoria, Western and South Australia.

Prior, he worked at CyberArk as Regional Sales Manager and as Finance Services and Insurance Major Account Manager with Check Point Software Technologies. He also previously worked in the telecommunication industry, holding account management positions at Optus and Primus Telecom.

"LogRhythm has experienced robust growth and demand for our solutions across the region continues to flourish. In order to continue to support ongoing demand and innovation, we are committed to building out a team in APAC with unmatched experience and talent. Michael Bovalino has a proven track record in customer growth and channel partner service excellence, and his experience will be instrumental for our growth in Australia and New Zealand," LogRhythm vice president of Sales APJ, Jerry Tng, says.

LogRhythm was recently recognised as a leader in the Gartner 2021 Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management for the ninth consecutive time. The company gives organisations complete visibility of their environment in a single pane of glass so SOC teams can efficiently identify potential threats and minimise risk.

Bovalino added, "LogRhythm delivers a winning formula for security operations centre solutions in Australia and New Zealand. With the combination of our industry-leading portfolio of solutions and the support of our valued partners, LogRhythm is an indispensable partner for organisations requiring optimal detection and response capabilities to manage their daily operations as well as compliance and risk reporting obligations.

"LogRhythm is a special place with a strong reputation and culture, and I am looking forward to leading the Australia and New Zealand business through its next phase of growth. We've got industry-leading technology and we are focused on continuing to enhance the security analysts experience through continued product and feature enhancements."
