Exabeam Appoints Regional Sales Director to Spearhead Growth in Japan

Cybersecurity sales veteran will help accelerate enterprise sales
momentum

SAN MATEO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/Cybersecurity?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#Cybersecuritylt;/agt;–Exabeam,
the next-gen SIEM company, today announced the appointment of Kei
Mitsuyama to regional sales director, Japan. His appointment will help
to build on Exabeam’s growing momentum in the region following the
recent decision by Japanese technology giant NTT DATA Corporation
to
deploy Exabeam’s Security Management Platform (SMP) to secure its global
operations.

Mitsuyama brings a wealth of experience in enterprise sales in the
Japanese market to Exabeam, having held senior sales positions at
Cybereason Japan, FireEye KK, Digital Arts Inc. and Oracle Corp Japan
over a 20-year career.

“Kei Mitsuyama’s expertise in cybersecurity enterprise sales will prove
invaluable to Exabeam as we continue to grow and disrupt the SIEM market
in Japan with our next-generation approach to security intelligence. His
experience will be a significant asset within our organization, and we
are pleased to welcome him to the team,” said Gareth Cox, Exabeam VP of
Sales, APJ.

“SIEM is one of the fastest growing segments in security, and Exabeam is
going head to head and winning against many of the major legacy
providers due to its behavior-based approach to security management and
its flat pricing model. These innovations drew me to the company,” said
Mitsuyama. “I look forward to contributing to its impressive growth by
exploiting key market opportunities in Japan.”

Mitsuyama joins the company only weeks after NTT DATA announced it had
chosen Exabeam’s SMP to secure its internal system, which is used in
more than 50 countries and regions, 210 cities and by approximately
110,000 employees worldwide.

Exabeam’s SMP provides NTT DATA with scalable behavioral modeling,
machine learning and advanced analytics for comprehensive insider and
entity threat detection throughout Japan, APAC, North America and
Europe. This functionality is vital to the NTT DATA team, which requires
greater visibility into potential cyberthreats throughout the
organization and in all locations around the world.

SMP provides superior threat identification and response capabilities
with a more affordable, predictable pricing model than legacy SIEMs. The
company’s goal is to systematically disrupt the SIEM space to become the
next market leader.

Exabeam has grown aggressively in the last three years to secure a
significant piece of the SIEM market, enjoying more than 200 percent
customer growth in 2018 and an increase of 80 percent in employee
numbers.

The company was also recently identified as a Leader, based on
completeness of vision and ability to execute, in Gartner’s 2018 Magic
Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management.
