IronKey appoints ANZ regional manager, eyes data security opportunities

09 Nov 15

IronKey is ramping up its local focus with the appointment of Tony Stratton as ANZ regional manager for the company.

Stratton, who will be based in Sydney, is charged with growing the IronKey business and revenue across Australia and New Zealand for the IronKey Workspace and IronKey secure storage USB devices.  

He will also be responsible for enhancing and managing a certified partner channel.  

Stratton’s appointment ,and the new role, follows the departure of Elizabeth Parsons – who had been ANZ business development manager – several months ago.

Stratton has more than 20 years experience in the IT sector, most recently as a senior account executive at Sophos.

He also spent five years as ANZ sales manager for SME eTechnologies, where he was responsible for managing key resellers strategic relationships across ANZ and enterprise customers throughout Asia Pacific, along with the day to day sales operations of the company’s corporate and retail arms across ANZ.

Stratton says IronKey’s Windows To Go devices offer Australian and New Zealand businesses and government departments the opportunity to mitigate risk while boosting productivity for their mobile workforce as well as allowing IT departments to manage encrypted devices so that they can track and ultimately destroy any data which is lost or stolen.

“With data security increasingly at the top of business conversations, I’m looking forward to working with our channel partners to offer customers, whether they be a financial services firm, a health department or an education institution, a range of mobile devices with all the feature functionality they require for a safe workspace with competitive pricing all backed by the support of a robust regional channel network,” Stratton says.
