Vaultive, the cloud data protection company, today announced the appointment of Bruce Johnson as vice president of global sales and Doug Lane vice president of product marketing. Both executives will play central roles in accelerating Vaultive’s momentum as the company capitalizes on growing demand for strong protection of data stored and used in cloud applications.

As VP of sales and business development at Vormetric, a leading data-at-rest encryption vendor that is being acquired by Thales, Johnson grew annual revenues to over $40 million per year and was instrumental in the company’s ascent to category leadership.

“Cloud security is at the top of the IT agenda at many organizations, and Vaultive’s unique cloud data protection capabilities help organizations of all sizes embrace SaaS with confidence,” said Johnson. “It’s must-have technology, and I look forward to helping organizations facing regulatory hurdles and international data residency laws remove all obstacles to cloud adoption.”
Lane has a 20-year track record of successfully bringing new products to market and maximizing the performance and market visibility of established products. He played key marketing and product management leadership roles in startup environments at Virtual Computer and Guardent and at growth-stage companies such as VeriSign and AppSense. He has proven success developing product strategies to capitalize on high-growth technology segments like information security and virtualization and aligning sales and customer needs with product development execution.
“Vaultive has a one-of-a-kind product that gives organizations complete control over data in the cloud while preserving SaaS application user experience,” said Lane. “It’s the right product at the right time as more business activities shifts to the cloud, and I’m excited to partner with a winning leadership team to capitalize on the tremendous opportunity in front of us.”
