“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 Meg. “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.”
