Imperva Inc.’s New Senior Vice President of Cloud Services
Imperva Inc., a company dedicated to protecting critical data and applications throughout the cloud, has recently announced that Meg Bear will become the company’s Senior Vice President of Cloud Services. Bear is responsible for increasing the company’s range of cloud services on an international level. In general, Bear is very qualified for this position. She has over twenty years of experience in a multitude of aspects within the software business. She also holds eleven patents for innovations in data management, social business, recruitment and talent management. Bear is a pivotal figure in the transition to cloud based business models. Bear was previously the Group Vice President for Social Cloud at Oracle responsible for delivering an integrated global social suite and held many other leadership roles at Oracle, including Vice President of Human Capital Management (HCM) Development and Senior Director of Development for Oracle PeopleSoft.
“Hiring Meg is one more example of our continued investment in our rapidly growing cloud business, and we are thrilled to bring her on board,” said Anthony Bettencourt. “With the 98% year-over-year increase in subscription revenue reported in our Q2 earnings, we are well positioned with Meg’s experience and leadership to maintain momentum and take advantage of mounting cloud opportunities, adoption rates, and technological innovations.”
“Customers today need more than traditional endpoint and network security solutions that clearly don’t go far enough, given recent high-profile data breaches,” said Bear. “The cloud is an engine of innovation for many companies, and that requires new views on security. I look forward to working with the world class Imperva cloud teams to address those challenges, all with the aim of helping customers protect their business critical data and apps.”
In addition to all previously mentioned qualifications, she also is an Advisory Board Member at Unitive and Brand Amper, and previously served as Advisory Board Member at Storyvite. She has held a plethora of advisory roles with many different organizations, such as Watermark. Bear graduated with a Degree in Economics and Entrepreneurship from the University of Arizona. Clearly, Bear has a lot to offer to Imperva, the leading provider of cyber security solutions in a business setting.
