Positive Technologies, a leading global provider of enterprise security solutions for vulnerability and compliance management, incident and threat analysis, and application protection, has opened an office in Sweden. In addition, the company confirmed the appointment of Johan Nordstrom as VP of Business Development–Application Security who will be based in this new office.
As part of its international plans, the Swedish office will house Positive Technologies’ Northern European sales team who will support partners and customers in this region. Further expansion is planned for the coming months, both in this region and globally.
Speaking about his appointment and future plans for Positive Technologies in the Nordic region, new VP of Business Development–Application Security, Johan Nordstrom noted, "Many organizations are challenged by determined adversaries every day to keep their networks secure and intruders out. However, the crux of the problem isn’t the severity of the attacks being launched, as all too often it’s the simplest vulnerabilities that exist within the network that are exploited to allow an attacker to take control of critical resources. With new devices, programs, and services introduced into the enterprise continuously, staying on top of what you’ve got and where it’s weak can feel like an insurmountable task. I will be working very closely with Roy Duckles, VP of Business Development EMEA, to further build our distribution channel in Northern Europe and establish a number of alliances with DDoS protection technologies, traditional network firewalls, and cloud-services providers to help organizations understand their infrastructure, focus effort on finding and remediating vulnerabilities, and ultimately strengthen defenses to keep intruders out and information secure."
Prior to joining Positive Technologies, Nordstrom acted as an independent contractor specializing in international and domestic business development. Previously, he worked as a senior director of sales for Tufin and held similar roles with Imperva and Arbor Networks.
