He joined TD Azlan in July 2016, specifically to work on the development of TD Azlan UK's security value proposition, having joined from Forcepoint, where he was Director of Channel Sales.
"With more customers now looking to make the most of virtualised and hyper-converged infrastructures, software-defined solutions and cloud-based appliances and services to enable much more flexible, scalable and networks and mobile environments, the need for expert advice and professional services on security has never been greater", said Stockford.

We’ll be looking to extend our portfolio and drive growth with a set of credible, reliable and scalable solutions and services, and a clearly differentiated approach in the value distribution sector."
TD Azlan will be looking to work closely with expert security resellers and systems integrators and leverage its strength in other sectors of the market to accelerate security solutions and services sales as part of integrated propositions.
