Aura Information Security appoints new Australian territory sales manager

20 Apr 18

Aura Information Security has appointed Lisa Burgess as its new Australian territory sales manager, who will be responsible for helping customers create a long-term mature cybersecurity strategy.

“We are delighted to have Lisa join the company at this stage of our growth in Australia,” comments Aura Information Security’s Australia country manager, Michael Warnock.  

“Her extensive experience in working with partners and customers, coupled with her in-depth knowledge in supporting technology deployment success will be a key asset to Aura Information Security in helping our customers drive competitive advantage.”

Burgess has more than 10 years of sales and channel partner experience, having worked at Insentra as national channel development manager. In the role she was responsible for driving revenue through the channel with MSPs and system integrators. She also onboarded new partners and helped to expand sales territories.

Burgess has also worked at Company85 where she was responsible for new channel partner development and vendor relationship management. She has also worked in sales development roles with IBM, Kable, and Appco Group Ireland.

Last year Aura Information Security struck a deal with managed security service provider Seccom Global, which was the first Australian channel partner to deliver RedShield web application shielding.

The RedShield solution brings together cybersecurity services and web application shielding software from a global library of approximately 7000 shields.

Aura says the final combination enables organisations to protect critical web applications, and fix known vulnerabilities.

“With a history of innovation and leading-edge support services, RedShield is a natural progression for us. This product is like nothing else on the market, it provides an intelligent, and almost immediate solution to malicious behaviours,” commented Seccom sales and marketing director Anita Sheridan-Roddick at the time.

“As we grow it’s important that we not only continue to provide our clients with best of breed solutions but also that we continue to adapt our business to meet our clients’ changing requirements. We see RedShield as a key partner in both our growth and our solutions.”

At the time of the announcement Warnock also added that there is opportunity for both companies to develop strong synergies.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Seccom Global. They are a well-respected player in the security space and this new relationship will bring mutual value for both current and future customers,” Warnock said.

“At the same time, Seccom Global’s current line-up of security solutions is a great complementary fit for RedShield.”
