KUALA LUMPUR, 15 MARCH 2011 - Czech security software firm TrustPort has ramped up its operations in Southeast Asia by opening a regional office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Speaking during the launch of TrustPort South East Asia in Malaysia recently, TrustPort chief executive officer Vladislav Nemec said this move was part of a continuing strategy to establish local branches in the regions with a great market potential.
"We have watched with great interest the growth of the ICT industry in Southeast Asia," said Nemec. "And our entry into the market was just a matter of time. Malaysia is well-positioned as a regional ICT hub and that is a compelling reason for us to set up our office here in Kuala Lumpur."
He said that TrustPort South East Asia aimed to capture 10 per cent of the regional data protection market within three years. "Southeast Asia is a crowded market. In order to achieve the target, we did a lot of marketing, and a brand awareness campaign, to educate the end-users about our products."
TrustPort South East Asia vice president of sales, Tiong, said: "I am confident about penetrating the Southeast Asia market. We continue to work with partners, customers, the government and we get great help from TrustPort headquarters. We have established regional support through our appointed partner, MSS Lab, to provide first-class local customer service."
"Because of our outstanding results in independent comparative tests, we have experienced constant growth in sales," said TrustPort sales director, Marcela Parolkova. "When you compare years 2010 and 2009, you can see that our global sales have doubled."
Headquartered in the Czech Republic, TrustPort manufactures security software is part of the Cleverlance Group, which is based in Central Europe.
