Prior to joining Zenprise, Martens started and managed Zscaler Inc.'s Australian and New Zealand business where he built the channels from the ground-up and evangelized the company's cloud services. Before this, Martens ran IronPort's Australian business including managing a team of sales, engineering and marketing professionals.
