Logpoint appoints Niels Onat as Regional Director for the Nordics and Baltics
- Seasoned Cybersecurity business leader to take charge of Logpoint growth in the Nordic-Baltic region
COPENHAGEN, Denmark, July 5, 2022 — Logpointhas appointed Niels Onat as its new Regional Director for the Nordics, including Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, and the Baltics, including Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. He will be responsible for driving growth in the Logpoint Nordic home market and leading the expanding team of cybersecurity professionals in the region.
"Niels is joining Logpoint at a key point on the Cybersecurity history timeline. The war in Ukraine has underscored the importance of protecting our societies against the growing cyber threat. As a result, integrating cybersecurity in business strategies and leveraging AI and automation to cope with the growing number of attacks is becoming a key priority," says Andrew Lintell, Logpoint VP EMEA.
Niels Onat has a proven track record as a leader in the cybersecurity industry. He led the cybersecurity provider Ezenta through a decade of triple-digit growth and successfully integrated the company into the pan-nordic cybersecurity company Nixu. Most recently, he has helped consulting firm and Logpoint partner Devoteam establish its Cyber Trust division.
"I'm excited to join the only European cybersecurity software vendor, providing trusted SIEM and SOAR solutions across the Nordic region. While we have a substantial customer base in the Nordics, the growth potential is significant, and I'm looking forward to working with fellow Logpointers, the partner community, and customers to improve the digital resilience of our societies," says Niels Onat.
"One of the biggest challenges in securing the digital transformation of organizations is the shortage of cybersecurity professionals. Managed Security Service Providers combining expertise and economies of scale to provide efficient cybersecurity solutions is a key part of the solution, and at Logpoint it will be a priority for me to expand our partnerships in this important segment".
Niels Onat stepped into the Regional Director position on July 1, 2022, replacing Martin Fribrock, who has successfully led the Logpoint Nordic team in the past two years. Fribrock has decided to leave Logpoint to pursue new opportunities.
