Vicki Batka has been appointed as APJ sales senior vice president to lead the Asia Pacific and Japan business.
Batka joins Trellix with over 35 years of experience, having held leadership roles at Network Associates (later McAfee), CA Technologies, VMWare, SAP and most recently, at Cisco as Asia Pacific, Japan and China partner sales vice president.
"I'm very excited to be able to grow the Trellix business across APJ, cementing Trellix as the leader in XDR and as an employer of choice for cybersecurity technologists," Batka says.
"My new role comes at a time when the need for holistic cybersecurity practices and approaches in enterprises continue to be a priority for leaders across the region.
"The APJ region is not just diverse in culture but also comes with unique ways of doing business, which is why I believe there is an opportunity for business and technology leaders to embrace Trellix's 'living security' approach in building resilient and confident businesses.
"Pair this with a personal mission to improve women's presence in the technology industry, [and] I look forward to becoming a Trellix champion for a diverse and inclusive workforce," Batka adds.

"Vicki is a great fit to lead Trellix to even greater success in the APJ region, helping to propel new and existing partnerships to success."
Batka has lived in Singapore for over a decade and will continue to lead the Trellix APJ business from there.
