SINGAPORE and TOKYO--1 Feb--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

Silver Peak(R), the global SD-WAN leader, delivering the transformational promise of the cloud with a self-driving wide area network(TM), today announced the appointment of Dean Vaughan as vice president of sales for Asia Pacific and Japan to accelerate business expansion and customer acquisition through the company's enterprise and service provider channels across the region. Recently recognized as a Leader in the Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure, Silver Peak currently has more than 1,000 global production customer deployments of its business-driven Unity EdgeConnect(TM) SD-WAN edge platform.

Today's executive appointment dovetails a series of executive leadership and channel partner program announcements that underscore the company's strategy to recruit the industry's best talent as it pursues market leadership in the hyper-competitive market for SD-WAN edge infrastructure. Silver Peak is now expanding into Japan, hiring seasoned sales teams to work hand in hand with partners to address the unique wide area networking requirements of Japanese enterprise customers.

A 22-year industry veteran with a proven track record in building winning sales teams, Dean Vaughan is responsible for Asia Pacific and Japan enterprise sales, including go-to-market and channel strategies to drive partner engagement and customer acquisition.

"It's an exciting time to join Silver Peak as geographically distributed enterprises across the Asia Pacific and Japan region turn to SD-WAN as a means to drive cloud and digital transformation initiatives," said Dean Vaughan, vice president of sales for Asia Pacific and Japan at Silver Peak. "My immediate task is to put in place the best go-to-market strategy and team to lead Silver Peak forward, empowering customers across the region with our business-driven Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN edge platform and liberating them from the compromises of router-centric and basic SD-WAN approaches to transform their networks into a business accelerant."

Prior to Silver Peak, Vaughan served in various enterprise technology sales leadership positions at Oracle, most recently as senior director of Cloud Platform Solutions for ASEAN where, in a short period of time, he significantly expanded the public cloud IaaS and PaaS businesses. Vaughan began his career at Oracle in 2009 where he established and scaled the Oracle Virtualization and Linux business units in Australia and New Zealand. By 2012, Vaughan was promoted to oversee the Cloud Infrastructure business unit for Asia Pacific and Japan. During this time, Vaughan delivered consistent double-digit annual growth by expanding the business to India, Korea and Japan and restructuring the business in China, ASEAN, Australia and New Zealand. Previously, Vaughan built NCR Corporation's Cisco Systems Network Integration business across Asia Pacific.

"Dean is a strong and seasoned leader who will enable us to capitalize on the unprecedented wave of SD-WAN demand across the Asia Pacific and Japan region," said Ken Laversin, chief revenue officer at Silver Peak. "Dean's demonstrated expertise in growing multiple businesses across Asia Pacific and Japan, and his depth of knowledge of the enterprise and channel market will enable Silver Peak to accelerate business expansion and customer acquisition, further entrenching us as the global SD-WAN leader delivering the transformational promise of the cloud with the industry's first self-driving wide area network."
