Rubrik has announced it has appointed experienced Cybersecurity Leader, Antoine Le Tard as its Vice President for the APAC region.

Based in Sydney, Australia, Le Tard brings more than 25 years of IT industry experience following senior leadership roles at RSA Security, Verizon, and most recently as Global Vice President APJC at AppDynamics. 

“There is no way to stop every single cyber attack, regardless of what industry you’re in,” says Antoine Le Tard. 

“With this in mind, the future of cybersecurity lies in turning the traditional fortress mentality on its head and making the business resilient in the wake of an attack. That’s why I joined Rubrik. The company’s approach to data security helps ensure potentially catastrophic incidents become minor inconveniences.”

Le Tard said his priority as Rubrik’s APAC leader will be to build upon the company’s positive momentum and strong community of partners and customers while continuing to accelerate Rubrik’s mission to secure the world’s data.     

Le Tard will work closely with APAC country leaders including Scott Magill, Koichi Ishii, and Ritesh Gupta who lead Rubrik’s business in Australia and New Zealand, Japan, and India, respectively. 

Antoine’s appointment follows Rubrik’s strong global momentum including recently surpassing $400 Million in Subscription ARR, accelerating customer count to over 4,500, and the appointments of former CIA CISO, Michael Mestrovich, as Rubrik’s new Chief Information Security Officer, and former director of the U.S Cyber Security and Infrastructure Agency, Chris Krebs, as Chair of Rubrik’s CISO Advisory Board.
