Protection Without Borders: AXS Guard Comes to the Netherlands

Mechelen, Belgium - AXS Guard, the leading Belgian provider of cybersecurity solutions, is proud to announce the opening of an office in the Netherlands.

Alex Ongena, CEO of AXS Guard, stated: "By appointing Mr. Mike Koehorst as Sales Manager for the Dutch market, we have found the right person to achieve our ambitions in the Netherlands."

This new office, located in North Holland, marks a major milestone in AXS Guard's European expansion. "It emphasizes our commitment to serving our existing partners and customers in the Netherlands even better, as well as our ambition to attract new partners who understand the need for turnkey cybersecurity solutions." added Alex Ongena.

Why the Dutch Market?

Recent research conducted by Computable in collaboration with Enigma Research shows that Dutch SMEs are increasing their cybersecurity budgets in the coming years. This is because they are realizing they have become an increasingly attractive target for hackers and cybercriminals. Computable

The implementation of appropriate cyber defenses is therefore vital. However, SMEs do not have the financial resources that large companies do, and are often offered "ad hoc" solutions that focus on specific problems, without considering the bigger picture.

Observe & Protect as a Turnkey Solution​

With Observe & Protect, we provide a complete turnkey cybersecurity solution to SMEs. "This allows IT service providers and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) to expand their portfolio and generate recurring revenue by delivering affordable and efficient Managed Cybersecurity Services to their customers." said Mike Koehorst, the new Sales Manager for the Netherlands.

Our ambitions are high. "By the end of 2024, we want to establish 25 new partnerships with local players. Mike Koehorst, with his impressive track record in sales and management, will be responsible for driving the growth and development of our activities in the Dutch market. His in-depth knowledge of the local market and his commitment to outstanding customer service make him the ideal candidate to achieve our ambitions in the Netherlands." said Dan Verbruggen, AXS Guard's Sales & Marketing Director.

AXS Guard will be present at Cybsersec Netherlands 2023 (November 1 & 2, Utrecht) and at the Cloud Expo (December 6 & 7, Houten).
