StorageCraft, a provider of data protection and availability solutions, expanded in the region by appointing Sayed Shamshuddin, as its regional sales manager for the Middle East and India.
Shamshuddin brings deep experience to the new role and knows how to build strong sales channel structures and relationships with medium to large enterprise businesses across all verticals.
"Sayed is highly knowledgeable, well respected and understands technology and customer needs in the Middle East. We are very excited to have him join our team," said Andy Zollo, vice president, Sales EMEA at StorageCraft. "Customer success is Sayed's first priority in the region."
"With years exclusively spent in the information security and identity and access management field, joining StorageCraft's team in the Middle East and India is exciting," said Shamshuddin. "In particular with the booming development of digitalisation initiatives in the Middle East region, the ability to securely and reliably back up and restore vast amounts of data has shifted into focus."
Shamshuddin said the increasingly distributed nature of data and the massive growth of unstructured data are creating storage challenges for organisations. "StorageCraft knows how to successfully address these issues directly and effectively," he said.
StorageCraft had its regional debut at GITEX Technology Week 2017 in Dubai. The company used its participation at GITEX to launch OneBlox, the scale-out object-based NAS storage appliance that solves businesses' common storage pain points, such as complex installation, cumbersome management, limited capacity and forklift upgrades.
