Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security™ Company, announced it has appointed experienced cybersecurity leader, Antoine Le Tard as its Vice President for the APAC region. Based in Sydney, Australia, Le Tard brings over 25 years of IT industry experience following senior leadership roles at RSA Security, Verizon, and recently as Global VP APJC at AppDynamics.
What does Le Tard bring to Rubrik in the new role?
Commenting on the appointment, Antoine Le Tard said, “There is no way to stop every single cyber attack, regardless of what industry you’re in. With this in mind, the future of cybersecurity lies in turning the traditional fortress mentality on its head and making the business resilient in the wake of an attack. That’s why I joined Rubrik. The firm’s approach to data security helps ensure potentially catastrophic incidents become minor inconveniences.”
Le Tard said his priority will be to build upon the firm’s positive momentum and strong community of partners while continuing to accelerate Rubrik’s mission to secure the world’s data. Le Tard will work closely with APAC country leaders like Scott Magill, Koichi Ishii, and Ritesh Gupta who head Rubrik in Australia and New Zealand, Japan, and India, respectively.
The hire follows Rubrik’s strong global momentum including surpassing $400m in Subscription ARR, accelerating customer count to over 4,500, and hires of former CIA CISO, Michael Mestrovich, as Rubrik’s Chief Information Security Officer, and former director of the U.S Cyber Security and Infrastructure Agency, Chris Krebs, as Chair of CISO Advisory Board.
