Resilient Systems, Incident Response Platform (IRP) provider, has announced the opening of a permanent European HQ in Reading, UK – signalling a significant expansion in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). The company also announced two senior hires to drive this new expansion.
Paul Ayers joins the company as General Manager, EMEA, overseeing all business operations in the region. Ayers brings almost 30 years of IT security market experience, having established operations for many US software providers in EMEA – most recently for data security specialist Vormetric. At Resilient, Ayers will be responsible for maintaining customer satisfaction, supporting the company’s continued growth, and establishing Resilient Systems as the partner of choice for incident response solutions in Europe.
Chris Neely joins as Director of Systems Engineering, EMEA, from Venafi, where he also directed systems engineering. Resilient Systems is investing in personnel to provide multilingual capabilities to support key EMEA markets outside of the UK, such as Germany, Austria & Switzerland (DACH).
“There’s growing acceptance that organisations have to manage IT security incidents as a part of their normal business operations – and they want to ensure their response is faster, more detailed, and more organised,” said Ayers. “In a short time, Resilient Systems has led the creation of a new market for incident response to address this huge, pressing demand – and has developed a strong and growing customer base.”
Resilient Systems enables organisations to react faster, coordinate better, and respond smarter to security incidents. The Resilient Systems IRP produces and manages instant incident response plans – automatically providing IR teams with comprehensive and consistent action plans based on industry standards, best practices, and global regulatory requirements. The platform allows teams to modify their response to suit organisational needs, adapt in real time as incidents evolve, and prioritise, focus, and mitigate on critical incidents before they become full-blown crises.
“Despite growing concerns over today’s cyber threats, organisations globally understand they can successfully manage and mitigate the security incidents they encounter – it just requires a more proactive, effective, and consistent response capability,” said John Bruce, CEO and Co-Founder of Resilient Systems. “There’s a huge demand for effective and comprehensive response solutions – as evidenced by our rapid growth around the world and expansion in EMEA. Paul Ayers and Chris Neely have both had successful careers helping technology companies become global players, and it’s exciting to have such talent on board.”
Resilient Systems has been active in EMEA since its initial launch in the region in April 2014, under the company’s former name, Co3 Systems. The Resilient Systems platform has been adopted by many of the world’s most trusted organisations in the US and Europe – including some of the UK’s largest companies in the finance, technology, telecommunications, and retail industries.
In addition to the new hires, Resilient Systems is opening a permanent European HQ in Reading, from which the company will operate and service its European customer base.
