Mobile security platform provider Zimperium has announced that Sammie Walker has joined the company as Chief Marketing Officer.

Walker – who will be responsible for driving growth and awareness as the company scales to provide organisations worldwide with protection against the increasing volume and severity of mobile threats – is a veteran marketing executive with 25+ years of experience in high tech.

Shridhar Mittal, CEO, Zimperium said: “Mobile devices are an increasing focus for cyber criminals. Last year, there was a 466% increase in exploited, zero-day vulnerabilities used in active attacks against mobile endpoints. But it is not just mobile endpoints introducing risk into corporate systems – 42% of organisations reported unauthorised apps and resources accessed enterprise data.

“As Zimperium enters a high growth phase to help more organisations protect against increasing threats to their endpoints and applications, Sammie is the perfect person to join our leadership team as CMO.

“She brings extensive experience in driving growth, building strong teams and accelerating pipeline for networking and security companies. She is a world class leader and we are excited for her to join us as we continue our next phase of growth.

“Organisations are realising that the mobile threat is real as more and more of them suffer catastrophic damage after falling victim to mobile attacks far outside their traditional security protections,” added Walker.

“As the only security platform that can protect the entire mobile ecosystem – from applications to endpoints – Zimperium has a unique opportunity to continue building on its leadership position in the mobile security space while helping organisations around the world become more secure.

“By scaling our marketing efforts, we can build on Zimperium’s winning track record and bring our solutions to an even wider audience.”
