Boulder, CO (PRWEB) February 18, 2009
PeakData Services, Inc, a fast-growing IT provider dedicated to information security compliance and risk mitigation services, announced today that it has launched operations based in Hong Kong dedicated to serving customers in the Asia-Pacific region.
Leading PeakData Services Hong Kong Limited is General Manager Huy Nguyen, a 20-year IT veteran. Nguyen has worked primarily in the information storage segment in positions ranging from IT management to consulting services to business development. He joins PeakData Services from Independent IT Consulting where he provided advice and solutions in IT and infrastructure to C-level management.
Previously, he was a director, enterprise solutions, for the Global Solution Services group at Hitachi APAC. His role was to grow the professional services teams, their expertise and their market penetration. He was also part of the Hitachi global team to build its services portfolio.
The company's regional headquarters are located at the Lee Gardens, 33 Hysan Ave., Causeway Bay, Hong Kong.
"Information security concerns are at the forefront of IT organization agendas all over the world. Our primary focus is on data on disk media that has essentially outlived its useful economic life yet still poses a risk of breach if not handled properly," said Glenn Jacobsen, vice president and general manager of PeakData Services.
"We are seeing strong and growing demand for our services in Asia, particularly from multi-national organizations. Because they are subject to many varying regulations in the many countries in which they do business, they must take tremendous precautions with their sensitive data. We have found that our technology and experience "travels" well along with these companies' information technology operations," added Nguyen.
Nguyen said that the initial projects in Asia include secure disk destruction for a leading global financial entity with operations in eleven (11) countries across Asia.
