SAN JOSE, Calif., August 1, 2023.– Vectra, a leader in AI-driven threat detection and response for hybrid and multi-cloud enterprises, has appointed Keith Wilkinson as its new AVP, leading the UKI.

“I’m delighted to welcome Keith to Vectra. Keith brings a wealth of expertise following several EMEA sales leadership roles, partnering with companies that differentiate through delivering great customer experience whilst helping to accelerate business outcomes leveraging AI and the Cloud,” says Teppo Halonen, SVP EMEA. “We have a great base of customers and partners in the UK/I and the momentum is building, particularly with the launch of Attack Signal Intelligence and Vectra MDR (Managed Detection and Response). Keith’s experience will without doubt help us bring the unique threat detection capability we offer to even more customers and partners in the region.”

Keith joins Vectra from AWS where he served as Head of GTM Productivity Applications for EMEA and where he built a technology go-to-market from the ground-up, responsible for strategy and sales execution.

“Following over two decades working for hi-tech enterprise software businesses, I’m very pleased to have joined Vectra to spearhead its mission as the industry’s most advanced cybersecurity AI technology. Organisations are confronted with an ever-expanding attack surface and emerging attacker techniques; this increases SOC workloads resulting in an overwhelming ‘spiral of more’. Now’s the time to bring cyber resiliency and security trust to organisations’ enterprise environments”,comments Wilkinson. “I look forward to forming close alliances with customers and partners, to help them find and prevent cyberattacks becoming business-impacting breaches.”
