The company announced the appointment of Jon Peppler as vice-president of channels and Benjamin Rice as vice-president of business development.
Peppler joins Bitglass from Menlo Security and brings over 20 years of channel experience gained while working at companies including Proofpoint and OpenText.
Rice has held a variety of senior management positions at public companies such as Blue Coat Systems as well as start-ups like Egnyte and Ositis Software.
“I am very excited to welcome Jon and Benjamin to the Bitglass team,” said Dean Hickman-Smith, senior vice-president of Worldwide Field Operations.
“As traditional security vendors struggle to adapt to the cloud-first world, there is a massive opportunity for the channel to partner with Bitglass and help their customers to securely transform their businesses.
“Bitglass operates within a rich business ecosystem filled with technology partnerships that bolster our cloud security product and our execution as a company. Jon and Benjamin will expand Bitglass’ go-to-market operations and continue our 3X annual growth rate over the coming years.
“As Bitglass continues to expand its operations globally, it represents the next wave of opportunity for the channel to engage in margin-rich, annually recurring business,” Peppler said.
“The demand for cloud security has never been greater, and the need for cooperation amongst cloud service providers and security companies has become critically important,” Rice said.
“Driving this co-operation through strategic partnerships will increase the value that Bitglass provides to its customers and all of its partners.”
