ThreatMetrix 300ThreatMetrix, a Digital Identity Company, revealed widespread growth in its APAC operations following Network expansion and the rapidly expanding digitalization of the market in financial services, eCommerce and government customers in the region. The company hired four new leaders in the expanded APAC region: Jean-Bernard Dumerc joined as Country Manager for Japan and Korea, Chih Hung Lau (Frank) joined as Country Manager of Greater China, Sai Ho Lam (Ken) is the Marketing Director of APAC and Ka-Fai Tang (Patrick) is the Alliance Director of APAC.

APAC’s rapidly expanding digitalization in financial services, eCommerce and government drives an unprecedented need for companies to expand into new markets and reach new buyers domestically and internationally. Through direct team expansion and an extended enterprise of strategic partners, ThreatMetrix serves customers in five key markets including Greater China, Japan and Korea, India, Australia and Southeast Asia. Local business managers and professional services teams are being deployed from service hubs to include Hong Kong, Tokyo, Delhi, Sydney and Singapore.

The company also recently invested in a local data center to bolster the company’s expansion in Greater China and fuel rapid growth across Asia. ThreatMetrix products and solutions offer massive improvement over traditional methods of authentication, which often pose issues of either friction or lack of coverage. As digital usage grows across APAC, so increases the need to proactively tackle the rising cyber attacks that accompany this behavioral shift.
