ExtraHop announced the expansion of its global operations into Singapore.

At the helm of the new Asia-Pacific operations is Danny Smolders, who joins ExtraHop as VP of APAC following his successful tenure as director of sales for APAC at Riverbed. The opening of ExtraHop offices in Singapore represents the first step in an aggressive expansion plan to meet demand for sophisticated IT intelligence solutions in the region.

Since securing a $41 million Series C funding in May 2014, ExtraHop has demonstrated strong and consistent growth in North America and Europe. During that time, the company has expanded in Canada and the United Kingdom and opened operations in Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium. The company has also grown significantly, doubling in size in 2015 to over 320 employees worldwide. Over the next 12 months, the company expects its APAC operations to grow exponentially in a handful of key geographies.

"Demand for next-generation IT solutions is accelerating in Southeast Asia and throughout the Pacific region," said Smolders. "As enterprises increasingly explore the efficiencies of cloud, virtualization, and software-defined datacenters, they are seeking solutions that can deliver the visibility they need to manage and maximize the value of these complex and dynamic environments. The ExtraHop platform delivers not only that visibility, but also the analytics that transform insight into ROI."

"Expansion into APAC represents a significant step for ExtraHop and underscores the strong growth the company has seen over the past 18 months," said Jesse Rothstein, CEO, ExtraHop. "The market opportunity is strong and growing, and demand for our platform has already forged a path to important channel partnerships in the region. With Danny leading a world-class team of professionals with deep experience in the region, we look forward to helping organizations maximize the value of IT and deliver meaningful insight for technology and business operations."
