About: A veteran technology marketing executive with 25+ years of experience in high-tech, Walker specializes in performance-marketing, demand generation and building leading brands for technology and cybersecurity companies. Most recently, she served as CMO at Bugcrowd where she earned positive market validation from leading industry analysts and established Bugcrowd as the leader of Crowdsourced Cybersecurity. Prior to that, she spent five years as CMO at Infoblox, the leader in next generation DNS management and security where she led a data-driven transformation of its marketing team and transformed the company’s brand from a data-center networking provider to a modern, cloud-first networking and security company.
Mission: In this role, Sammie will be responsible for driving growth and awareness of Zimperium’s mobile security platform as the company scales to provide organizations worldwide with protection against the increasing volume and severity of mobile threats. To support this growth, Zimperium continues investing in its team and leadership following the company’s $525 million acquisition by Liberty Strategic Capital last year. “Mobile devices are an increasing focus of cybercriminals. 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 organizations reported unauthorized apps and resources accessed enterprise data,” said Shridhar Mittal, CEO, Zimperium. “As Zimperium enters a high-growth phase to help more organizations 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. ###
