London - 26 October 2017

Bitglass, the total data protection company, today announced the appointment of Steven Armstrong as Regional Sales Director for the UK, Ireland and Sub-Saharan Africa. Based in the UK, Armstrong will be responsible for Bitglass’ business development strategy in the three territories.

Prior to joining Bitglass, Armstrong held the role of Director of Business Development at anti-virus software provider Avira. He has a proven track record in driving growth whilst working with customers and partners in a range of enterprise IT markets. Armstrong has accumulated over 15 years of business development experience, having worked for both start-ups and established publicly traded organisations including Spok, Xirrus and Software Box Limited (SBL).

“We are very pleased to have Steve on board to expand our business in the UK, Ireland and Sub-Saharan Africa,” said Eduard Meelhuysen, VP of Sales EMEA at Bitglass. “With his channel sales experience and knowledge of the diversified EMEA markets, Steve is the perfect fit for this new role.”

“The UK, Ireland and Sub-Saharan Africa represent a huge market opportunity for cloud security. The surge in demand for cloud services has made the cloud security industry one of the most exciting to work in,” added Armstrong. “I’m looking forward to strengthening relationships with current customers and partners, as well as recruiting new ones. The entire Bitglass team is fully committed to helping enterprises realise the flexibility and cost savings of the cloud without compromising on data security.”

Since its inception in 2013, Bitglass has become a market leader and the only CASB to offer real-time data protection from any device for cloud apps like Office 365, Salesforce, Box, and more. The company expanded into the EMEA region last December, and has signed a number of partnerships since, most recently with UK distributor Ignition Technology in June.
