Cryptosoft has appointed a new sales and channels head for its M2M and Internet of Things data encryption business. Remco Postma has joined the company as global vice president of sales.

Postma has previously held senior sales and channel roles at the likes of Intel Security, PWC, HP, Symantec and AppSense. Postma will be responsible for scaling Cryptosoft’s sales and channel partner organisations and accelerating growth worldwide through its strategic partners.

As a proven sales and channel leader, Remco has an exceptional track record of leading and driving growth through strategic partnerships,” said Darron Antill, CEO of Cryptosoft. “As data security and device authentication becomes critical to the rapidly emerging IoT market and ecosystem, our partner strategy will be hugely significant to grow our global business dramatically in 2016.

“Machine-to-machine (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are transforming industries and creating tremendous opportunities for mobile M2M module vendors around the world,” said John Byrne, an analyst at Infonetics Research.
