CrowdStrike’s new vice president of APAC says he’s on a mission to grow the company even more, jumping on board the company at a time when it’s experiencing massive revenue growth.

Andrew Littleproud joined the company last week and says it’s an exciting time for CrowdStrike’s ‘innovative’ approach to endpoint protection.

The company has experienced massive growth since opening its regional headquarters in Sydney last year.

Overall, the company experienced 660% total revenue growth and 675% in total bookings of new business last year. 

It has also managed to recruit partners and its channel footprint, both of which have boosted its go-to-market strategy.

Littleproud, formerly from Blue Coat and McAfee, will help to further build the company’s presence in Singapore, India, Japan and North Asia, as well as working with established markets such as Australia and New Zealand.

“CrowdStrike has already established a proven track record of continued momentum and customer success in APAC, highlighted by its rapidly expanding customer base and impressive revenue growth. I am thrilled to have this tremendous opportunity to further expand the reach and scale of our regional business.”

CrowdStrike Falcon, the company’s flagship endpoint detection and response recently integrated machine learning to boost its AV capabilities.
