Wed, 3rd May 2023

Infoblox, a company that delivers a simplified, cloud-enabled networking and security platform for improved performance and protection, has hired Scott Morris as its Managing Director for Australia & New Zealand. As Managing Director for Australia & New Zealand, Morris will lead Infoblox's sales team and its go-to-market strategy across the ANZ region.

Morris joins Infoblox from Druva where he held the role of Vice President APAC & Japan, based in Singapore. Morris has also held senior roles at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Simplivity, and NetApp.

After 15 years of building and implementing sales growth strategies for global tech companies in Singapore, Morris said "it's great to be back on Australian soil, and bring home the rich insights and experiences from APAC." Morris adds that Infoblox is one of the few security solutions out there that provides unparalleled visibility and control over who and what connects to a network. An attractive value proposition to work for and one I didn't want to miss.

A veteran in the IT sector, Morris has over three decades of experience leading sales, technical, consulting, marketing, and management teams across SaaS security & data protection, broad enterprise IT infrastructure, virtualization, and cloud computing. He is passionate about reaching customer goals by leading his high-performance team to customer success.

"We're very happy to have Scott on board," said Paul Wilcox, Vice President for Asia Pacific & Japan at Infoblox. "Many ANZ organizations are unaware of the serious cyber risks at the DNS level, and Australia has had a spate of recent high-profile attacks in this area. Our channel partners are carefully selected for their wealth of experience in understanding and servicing organizations network and security needs. Together, Scott and his team will share their expertise in leveraging DNS to block threats earlier, and help Australian organizations protect their business and devices in today's Work-From-Anywhere multi-cloud environments."
