Carbon Black is the market leader in Next-Generation Endpoint Security (NGES) and is leading a new era of endpoint security by enabling organizations to disrupt advanced attacks, deploy the best prevention strategies for their business, and leverage the expertise of 10,000 professionals to shift the balance of power back to security teams.

It’s been an exciting few months since we started and we want to help forward thinking Asia Pacific organizations arm their endpoints, enabling security teams to defend their organizational assets effectively. We are putting our trust in Ying Comms to develop the communications strategies to deliver our message to those organizations,” said Kane Lightowler, Managing Director for Asia Pacific.

“Security is one of the most exciting part of the tech industry and we are thrilled to be partnering with Carbon Black to bring NGES to the region,” said Naeema Ismail, General Manager, Ying PR.
