"We believe he’s the right person to help us raise our profile in the U.S. market through his global contacts, market expertise and strategic vision."
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 07, 2015
G DATA, the world’s longest standing antivirus protection provider founded in Germany, today announced that security veteran Andrew Hayter will join the team as its new Security Evangelist. Andrew’s role will be to raise awareness in the U.S. market around the company and its vision as well as the products it brings to market. He will also be leading and coordinating G DATA's collaboration efforts with U.S. industry associations and security product testing institutes.
“Andrew is a proven expert in the security field with over two decades of experience in malware and antivirus research and testing,” said Walter Schumann, President of G DATA. “We believe he’s the right person to help us raise our profile in the U.S. market through his global contacts, market expertise and strategic vision. Together with Andrew, we envision G DATA as becoming a truly international brand, recognized for our strong antivirus products that help keep users safe while online banking, shopping or during any online activity.”
Andrew has more than 25 years' experience as a manager for security solutions in the technology sector. He was previously the international antivirus program manager for ICSA Labs, the testing lab owned by Verizon Business. Prior to that, Andrew was a global product manager for IBM AntiVirus.
"G DATA is a well-established leader in the security industry and was the first company to launch an antivirus solution over 30 years ago,” said Mr. Hayter. “However, while they have a strong European presence, they are still relatively unknown in the US. With the constantly growing threat in the market, the U.S. is ripe for G DATA’s antivirus and online security solutions. I truly believe in their products, and I see a great opportunity for them to make an impression on the U.S. market in both the enterprise and consumer space. I look forward to helping continue to make them a global brand.”
