In his role, Yip will be charged with growing the division, advising organisations on industry trends and working closely with stakeholders on ensuring their security strategies are aligned with business objectives.
"Security is one of CA Technologies core areas of expertise. We have many well-known, large customers deploying our leading-edge security solutions to enable and protect their business in this new world. Ian’s experience positions him well to further cultivate and grow these relationships. We are very pleased to welcome him to the team," said Vic Mankotia, vice president, Solution Sales, CA Technologies Asia Pacific and Japan.
Ian Yip said, "Whilst the ANZ security market is relatively mature, businesses are still struggling to address the security challenges associated with cloud and mobility, data sovereignty and consumer privacy. Businesses require good products with a strategic approach. I look forward to working with our customers and partners to help them forge that path."
Yip has worked with organisations worldwide to strategise, architect and implement IT security solutions, particularly in the areas of identity and access management, data security, IT governance, risk and compliance, and mobile and cloud security.
Before joining CA Technologies, Yip held a variety of leadership, sales, marketing and consulting roles in both Europe and Australia in leading IT companies including NetIQ and IBM. At NetIQ, he was the APJ Product and Business Manager responsible for business development, product management and product marketing in the Asia-Pacific region. Ian brings with him deep domain expertise as well as a rich security specialist heritage.
