Tenable announced it has appointed Johnny Yap as channel director for Asia Pacific (APAC). Based in Singapore, Yap will be responsible for spearheading Tenable’s channel vision and overseeing all partnership initiatives as Tenable continues to ramp up its engagement with the channel in this region.
“Tenable’s channel-led strategy focused on helping partners navigate the new world of work as the adoption of new technologies continues to atomize the attack surface is built upon our shared vision to help customers manage, measure and reduce their cyber risk,” said Nigel Ng, vice president for Tenable, Asia Pacific. “We’re delighted to appoint Johnny to continue nurturing those strong and trusted long-term relationships we’ve built with the channel over the years. His skillset and experience in developing strategic partner ecosystems, leading the charge on complex deals and acquiring key partners, managed security service providers and global system integrators will be invaluable to Tenable.”
With over 20 years of IT industry experience, Yap joins Tenable from Splunk where he was the director for sales best practices, APAC, where he managed complex deal structuring, led sales engagement strategy and negotiations. Prior to that, Yap served as head of channel, strategic partnership and alliances at IBM Security, APAC.
“The shift to remote work in APAC, convergence of IT and operational technology along with the rapid adoption of cloud-native technologies have dramatically expanded the attack surface and underscored the need for greater collaboration within the technology ecosystem,” said Yap. “Cybersecurity is a team effort and I’m excited to strengthen our customers’ cybersecurity posture, together with the team at Tenable and our partners.”
