INTERVIEW: Expansion Plans to the APAC Region

Written by Jordan True

October 20th, 2016

It has been less than a year since Simon Azzopardi joined the Thycotic team as Vice President of EMEA and APAC and we’ve already seen significant growth to our world-class two-tier channel program. His leadership and business strategy of signing on the top security partners, leading international teams, and increasing market share and profits has shown huge impact in Thycotic’s growth as the leading Privileged Access Management solution. Now Simon has even bigger plans in store for 2017 – expansion into the Asia and Pacific market.


Simon has one goal in mind and that is to continue Thycotic’s growth as the leading enterprise password management and PAM solution in the marketplace. According to Cybersecurity Venture’s Cybersecurity Market Report, “The Asia Pacific Cyber Security Market is expected to grow to $32.95 billion by 2019, with an expected CAGR of 14.1 percent for the period 2013-2019. This market contributes 17.21 percent of the global market and will slightly grow to 21.16 percent by 2019.” It doesn’t matter the size of the organization or location of the business; every enterprise is vulnerable to a privileged account attack. The Asia Pacific Cyber Security marketplace is in critical need for an established privileged password solution.

Top APAC Expansion Goals

Simon’s expansion goals include Identifying the right partners that fit our company culture and understanding how to translate security needs.  Expansion is well underway with the team already signing on EMTD  Ltd., a specialist vendor representative focusing on the Information Security and Microsoft technologies across APAC. Together EMTD and Thycotic will sign at least 15 other distribution partnerships. Expansion will start with a focus in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Malaysia. When asked where Thycotic will be in 5 years Simon answered, “Thycotic will absolutely be a leader in the Privileged Account Management space providing localized support and customer service to every customer worldwide.”

Building strong relationships with resellers to expand the great customer experience Thycotic is known for worldwide will help bring Thycotic’s full range of Privileged Account Management solutions to every enterprise.
