Imperva appoints Pam Murphy as CEO

Meanwhile, the interim CEO of Imperva, J. Charles Goodman, is expected to continue to serve as its chairman.

Murphy previously served as COO of Infor for nine years, as well as holding leadership roles at Oracle in the past, and she will bring an extensive background in field sales and consulting, as well as professional services operations, to the role.

During her time at Infor, Murphy was responsible for ushering along an infrastructure partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS), as well as building out Infor’s cloud product roadmap.

“We’re excited to have Pam join us on our mission to protect critical assets from cyber criminals’ ever-changing attacks,” said J. Charles Goodman, chairman of Imperva. “As an accomplished executive who has led operations for some of the world’s largest software companies, and demonstrated ability to deliver customer value on a massive scale, she is perfectly positioned to lead Imperva through our next phase of growth.”
