Networking management integrator, ITC Global Security, has opened a new office in Sydney as part of its global expansion plans.
In a statement, the company announced the Australian branch would be run by head of optimisation services, Rafael Valetov, a veteran of the enterprise network and application optimisation markets.
He will also be responsible for assisting customers with WAN and remote access optimisation, application delivery and infrastructure optimisation.
Valetov’s experience and project management skills were a key factor in the senior management infrastructure for the region, the company stated.
Valetov will be supported by ITC’s new Asia-Pacific sales manager, Nick Kirby, who comes to the organisation after stints with Commander, Uecomm and Cable & Wireless.
ITC was founded in the UK in 1995 and provides services around risk management, consulting, managed networking, security support and integration.
Its customer base includes enterprise and mid-market global organisations with a major focus on the finance and banking sector. The list includes Lloyds Bank, BNP Paribas, International Bank, British American Tobacco and BskyB/News Corporation.
The decision to open up in Australia follows similar moves in Canada and Malaysia, as well as tweaks to the overall business to support global service providers, the company stated.
ITC managing director and co-founder, Tom Millar, said the company's global efforts helped it achieve 55 per cent revenue growth last year.
“The new office in Sydney endorses our commitment to continued global expansion. Our regional technology support centres enable us to offer the same level of support across different continents and apply a true 'follow the sun' model for clients with a global user base,” he said in the statement.
