Cequence Security appoints Glen Maloney to lead ANZ expansion
Thu, 6th Apr 2023

Cequence Security, a leading provider of Unified API Protection, has appointed Glen Maloney as ANZ Country Lead to drive the company's expansion in Australia and New Zealand. Maloney, who has over 20 years of experience in cybersecurity, was most recently the ANZ Regional Sales Manager at ExtraHop. His role at Cequence Security will involve supporting Australia's hyper-connected enterprises with market-leading protection for their API-based applications.

According to Maloney, APIs have become a strategic necessity for businesses to aid flexibility and agility, but many organizations aren't deploying a solution that covers the entire API lifecycle, leaving them vulnerable to a breach. He believes that Cequence Security's unique approach to uncovering and preventing API breaches that can lead to fraud and data loss has resulted in the company protecting US$1.3 trillion in assets among Fortune 500 companies and more than two billion user accounts worldwide.

Cequence Security offers the most complete API security solution in the market, compared to point products. The Cequence Unified API Platform is the only solution that implements a continuous API security protection lifecycle that includes discovery, inventory, compliance, threat detection, threat prevention and testing.

Ameya Talwalkar, founder and CEO of Cequence Security, said, "We are excited to expand our business in Australia and New Zealand and to appoint Glen to help further our business growth across the region through working closely with our customers and partners. His two decades of cybersecurity experience, insight, and work with many of the region's leading enterprises will ensure that we can support customers to take full advantage of their investments and trust in the Cequence Unified API Protection solutions in today's digital-first business world."

Maloney is thrilled to join Cequence Security at this critical time in the API security market and to support Australias' enterprises with market-leading protection for their API-based applications. He believes that organizations need to be confident that their APIs are providing the level of secure and reliable service required, and in Cequence Security, they have a partner to support these security frameworks.

With the addition of new customers, including the largest carrier in Australia and two of the top three telecom companies in the U.S. in 2022, Cequence Security is looking to expand its business further in Australia and New Zealand with Maloney's appointment.
