Expand Opens in Russia

ROSELAND, N.J. and SLOUGH, U.K. -- Expand Networks, a leader in application acceleration over the wide area network (WAN) and recently positioned in the Gartners Leaders Quadrant for WAN Optimization Controllers 2007, today announced the opening of a new regional office and the appointment of Albert Katsir as Sales Director for Russia. This is the next step in Expand’s significant investment across the region to further develop its market reach and build upon its successful partner and customer channels.

Expand’s Compass Platform is already providing many Russian businesses with the application acceleration, WAN Optimization and Wide Area File Services they need to comprehensively overcome the latency and QoS challenges laid down by today’s distributed working environments. Expand has already sold into many financial institutions including one of the largest high street banks, and has also been particularly successful in the energy, gas and telecoms sectors with high-profile customers including SurgutNeftGAs, Dasvidania and Equant Orange Business Services. Expand’s increased presence across Russia will see the company further develop its customer base across all vertical markets.

“There is a huge market for the superior capabilities and flexibility of our technology,” said Elie Barr, CEO, Expand Networks. “The ease of centralization and management of the Expand Compass platform presents an incredibly appealing proposition for enterprises in the region – particularly when you consider the unique geography of the country and the dispersed environment that many operate in.”
