Patric Balmer, formerly of NTT New Zealand, is officially Spark’s new lead for managed security services.

Before working through a three-month probation, Balmer was general manager for NTT’s cyber security go-to-market. Over a 24 year career, he accumulated experience in designing security solutions for clients and providing a perspective on security challenges and threats.

The capability within Spark’s cyber defence team was “one of a kind” in New Zealand, Balmer said.

“The experienced team of specialised threat hunters combined with Spark’s unique threat intelligence platform provides the perfect ingredients for our new-to-market managed detection and response (MDR) services,” Balmer said.

Josh Bahlman, Spark’s chief information security officer, said Balmer brought a wealth of experience and credentials to the role and would strengthen Spark’s go-to-market in providing modern and innovative security services.
