With the recent cyberattacks on Australian businesses and the significant increase in cyber attacks around the globe over the past months, governments and enterprises in Australia must now take action and harden their defenses against an advanced pool of adversaries.

“CrowdStrike continues to see high demand for cybersecurity technology in the Australian market. Cybersecurity solutions have quickly become top-of-mind conversations among Australian businesses at the same time as the Australian government has also actively encouraged organisations to bolster their defences ,” said Brett Raphael, Managing Director, Australia & New Zealand at CrowdStrike. “There has never been more focus on the need to defend against today’s cyber threat landscape. Our appointments of Jade Porter and Paul Salmon will help CrowdStrike better serve its customers in protecting their businesses.”
