Silver Peak, the global leader in broadband and hybrid WAN solutions, today announced the appointment of Tricia Png as Regional Director for ASEAN further strengthening its Asia Pacific operations. Responsible for executing the Silver Peak sales and channel strategy across the region, Png will focus on extending the company’s market share and driving the growing demand for SD-WAN solutions.

Prior to Png rejoining Silver Peak, she brings more than 20 years of experience in enterprise IT sales, channel and product marketing for top networking and security solutions providers spanning Blue Coat Systems (acquired by Symantec), Certis Cisco, Lucent Technologies and Nortel Networks.

Silver Peak empowers distributed enterprises to fully leverage cloud services, and intelligently connect users to mission-critical applications through virtual WANs using any combination of broadband connectivity,” said Png.

“I am confident that our market expansion and growth will be fueled by the strong business case for our SD-WAN solutions – unmatched performance and QoS, visibility and security, as well as potential to reduce costs by up to 90 per cent.”

“Asia is one of Silver Peak’s fastest growing regions with the adoption of SD-WAN technologies set to explode,” said Chris Helfer, senior vice president, worldwide sales.
