Torrid Networks names new vice president.
Dubai-based cyber security consulting firm Torrid Networks FZE, has appointed Syed Ibrahim Anwar as the new vice president, Sales, Cyber Security Practice.
In the new position, Anwar will drive and oversee
sales for Torrid's Cyber Security Practice unit.
In addition, Anwar is responsible for expanding the
existing business from the UAE market to other regions in the wider Middle East.
Dhruv Soi, founder, Torrid Networks FZE, said: "The
company is excited to have hired the services of Syed Ibrahim Anwar as the new
vice president because he comes with a lot of experience in IT distribution and
channel business development."
Soi said Torrid Networks has got some unique strengths compared
to other competitors in the market and the company sees tremendous scope for expansion in the region.
"We operate totally into a niche-technology space where our company's approach
is to distinguish itself by positioning ourselves as a cyber security
technology provider that adopts latest cutting-edge technologies to thwart emerging
IT threats," he said.
Remarking of his appointment, Anwar added that the company sees
huge potential in the IT channel security market as only limited players are
available in this space giving niche service. "We consider ourselves as pioneers
in information security in the Middle East working with many vendors and giving value
added services, which the IT channel can utilise to earn substantial margins,"
Anwar said the main focus in 2016 is to expand Torrid's
security appliances portfolio by forging alliances with leading vendors and
filling the gaps where security is required. "We are expecting around 15% of
market share in the security portfolio across the Middle East and Africa (MEA),"
he said. "We are already helping several businesses within the UAE and Saudi
Arabia, and are aiming to reach out to other regions this year. We are also
negotiating strategic partnership in North Africa and CIS countries to deliver
our expertise through an extensive partner network.
He said channel partners should expect higher margins
from the solutions the solutions Torrid is bringing to market and not pushing boxes.
It's a new opportunity which I am bringing to the partners, where they can move
away from traditional box reselling business and get into solution reselling,
which is the future of the channel.
