In News

Mimecast has appointed Jeff Ogden as general manager for the Middle East. In his new role, Jeff will oversee the company’s UAE operations and growth in the region, and will be responsible for educating organisations about evolving cyberattacks and how to build a cyber resilience strategy for email.

Jeff has been working in technology for over 35 years, 17 of which have been in IT security. Under Jeff’s leadership, Mimecast will continue to build a strong and loyal channel programme, ensuring all resellers share a deep knowledge of the company’s technology and services, alongside a commitment to customer experience.

“Mimecast has successfully been operating in Dubai for just over a year and Jeff’s appointment is the next step to support an aggressive growth strategy in the Middle East,” said Brandon Bekker, managing director at Mimecast MEA. “This appointment will bolster our existing strong customer relations and help us establish new alliances and partnerships.”

Prior to joining Mimecast, previous senior executive roles Jeff has held include leading Symantec’s managed security services and consulting division in the Middle East. Jeff also set up Netcure Middle East, a security consultancy and integrator, part of the UAE’s largest IT provider – Mideast Data Systems (MDS).

“Organisations throughout the region are increasingly adopting cloud-based services like Office 365, but concerns remain around the security and availability of email services,” said Jeff Ogden, general manager, Mimecast Middle East. “The Middle East represents a significant opportunity for Mimecast as we help organisations with comprehensive security controls before, continuity during, and automated recovery after an attack.”
