Morphisec, cloud-delivered endpoint and server security solutions provider, has appointed Ajit Pillai as the Regional Director for APAC.

As a part of this new role, Pillai will supervise strategic direction in the region and ensure Morphisec can meet the local demand for its suite of solutions for endpoints, servers, and cloud workloads, which uses patented zero trust runtime security powered by moving target defense technology to block threats.

Morphisec has strengthened its presence across India and Southeast Asia in recent years with triple-digit, year-over-year growth. In India, its customers include Neogrowth, RBL Bank, Writer Corporation and Cipla. Furthermore, it has expanded its partner base in the region with MSSPs such as New Era, while adding distributors such as iValue Infosolutions.

“We’re thrilled to add Ajit to our team to further Morphisec’s momentum in India and across Asia Pacific,” said Ronen Yehoshua, Morphisec’s CEO. “He brings tremendous experience across the region to our sales operation and has a track record of driving local growth. “This background makes him ideally suited to lead both direct sales and the Morphisec MSSP business within the market, which is poised to grow significantly in the years to come.”

Pillai holds over two decades of experience driving sales and marketing initiatives across the IT and cybersecurity sectors. Prior to joining Morphisec, he was appointed as the Vice President Sales, India/SAARC, for Silicon Valley headquartered Seclore Technologies.

“Like their counterparts across the globe, mid-sized enterprises in India have been historically underserved by the cybersecurity market and left behind by cost-prohibitive tools and staff constraints,” said Pillai. “Increasingly these organizations are turning to Morphisec to bring them simple yet effective protection that thwarts the most damaging attacks prior to a breach and still fits into their existing budget.”
