COPENHAGEN – April 23, 2020 – LogPoint, the Modern SIEM, and UEBA company are announcing the appointment of Martin Fribrock as Regional Director for the Nordics, including Sweden, Norway, and Finland. He is joined by Joel Linngård, taking up the position as Enterprise Account Manager, adding significant cybersecurity industry experience to the LogPoint team in Stockholm.
“While the demand for LogPoint SIEM and UEBA solutions has been growing rapidly in the Nordic region for years, the Corona crisis has exposed the vulnerabilities of the highly digitalized Nordic societies, increasing attention on cybersecurity, compliance and IT operations excellence among enterprises and public authorities,” says LogPoint CEO Jesper Zerlang.
“Martin and Joel are invaluable additions to the LogPoint team in Stockholm, based on their cybersecurity industry experience, technological insights, and proven leadership skills,” says Zerlang.
As the Regional Director of LogPoint in the Nordics, Martin Fribrock will assume the overall leadership of growing the team of sales, marketing, and technical professionals at the LogPoint Stockholm office. He has almost ten years of experience in the IT industry, most recently in various leadership positions with US cybersecurity vendor Fortinet. Prior to that, he was a professional footballer for more than a decade, playing for the Swedish National Football team and in the top football leagues in Sweden and Denmark.
“The cybersecurity threat is evolving, and the pressure is rising. Adversaries are constantly getting better and more aggressive, so we need to put the right tools in the hands of those that are protecting our society against cybercrime. That is what LogPoint does, and does very well. Together with our customers and partners, we are the tip of the sword, and I’m really excited to become a part of that effort,” says Martin Fribrock.
Joel Linngård joining LogPoint as Enterprise Account Manager has more than ten years of experience in the Cybersecurity industry from companies such as Stay Secure, Blue Coat, Symantec, and CGI. In his position, he will focus on the larger Nordic enterprises and government customers, including those building Security Operations Centers (SOCs), as part of the response to the increasing cyber threat.
“Threats and challenges in Cybersecurity must be matched by new technology, which makes this an ever-evolving and interesting market to be in. In the years to come, we will most likely see an increase in SOC demand in multiple market segments, and SIEM is the key building block in a SOC. LogPoint is also a solid compliance management system for monitoring and automation, which is critical from an information security and compliance perspective”, says Joel Linngård.
