Blue Coat veteran Yuji Ohashi joins enterprise information protection solutions provider Verdasys

Infotech Lead Asia: Verdasys, a provider of Enterprise Information Protection solutions and managed services for enterprises, appointed Yuji Ohashi as country manager for Japan.

Before joining Verdasys, Ohashi worked with Blue Coat.

The company has also entered into a strategic partnership with RTM Asia to help drive expansion across the Asia Pacific region.

The moves mark a progression of Verdasys’ APAC resources from a single office serving Japan and Taiwan into a wider network that can take advantage of Ohashi’s experience within Japan and RTM Asia’s marketing and sales networks across the region, where the company is experiencing exceptional growth.

Verdasys is expanding in Asia to tap the information protection market that is becoming increasingly important to global enterprises, and success in Asia-Pacific is critical to our business.

“As we expand through all of APAC, we needed an experienced country manager whose full attention could be devoted to the Japanese market. Meanwhile, it became increasingly important to partner with an established firm with resources across the entire region,” said Dennis Allan, senior vice president, Global Field Operations, Verdasys.

Besides Blue Coat, Ohashi also worked with Cisco and Foundry Networks.

Most recently, his expertise in marketing, channel development and customer relationships helped web security company Blue Coat exceed its growth objectives in Japan’s high tech industry.

Specializing in increasing American software companies’ sales in the region, RTM Asia will enhance Verdasys’ presence in Taiwan and expand the company’s coverage into South Korea, Southeast Asia and China.
