CrowdStrike Launches First Innovation and Development Center in Pune

The company has also appointed Jagdish Mahapatra as managing director Asia (India, South East Asia and North Asia).

CrowdStrike Inc., the leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection, has announced the expansion of its operations in the Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) region with the opening of a new Innovation and Development Center in Pune, India. The company has also appointed Jagdish Mahapatra as managing director Asia (India, South East Asia and North Asia).

The appointment of Mahapatra is made to strengthen the company’s foothold in the region and rapidly drive new growth opportunities. Mahapatra joins CrowdStrike from McAfee where he was responsible for the APAC channel. Prior to that, he was the managing director of McAfee India and SAARC. He also spent over 10 years with Cisco.

Jagdish Mahapatra, managing director Asia at CrowdStrike, said, “I’m excited to work with the company leading the charge and setting the new standard for endpoint protection. India and SAARC are a strategic growth market for CrowdStrike and I’m looking forward to driving continued momentum in this region.”

CrowdStrike has chosen the city of Pune to leverage partnerships with local universities as part of a long-term collaboration to address the cybersecurity talent shortage in India.

Amol Kulkarni, CrowdStrike’s Chief Product Officer, said, “Today, I’m very proud to be here in Pune to launch our CrowdStrike Innovation and Development Center, and to announce that we are partnering with the College of Engineering, Pune and the Pune University Cyber Security department to offer cyber education opportunities, as well as internships.”

Andrew Littleproud, vice president Asia Pacific and Japan, also said, “As a fast-growing industry leader, CrowdStrike is continually expanding our footprint in APJ, adding resources and operations in the most high-yielding regional markets. I’m looking forward to expanding our team and customer base even further and continuing to drive explosive growth within the India and SAARC market.”
