Based in San Jose, California, Vormetric Inc. is a fast growing data security company developing encryption and key management products for the enterprise and cloud security market. Our rapid growth provides unique opportunities for the right people to join a team that is ready to take the organization to the next level. At Vormetric you?ll be working with some of the smartest minds in enterprise software and data security, with a seasoned executive team, in a company culture that moves quickly and acts decisively.

Vormetric is aggressively entering the cloud security market and is seeking an experienced engineering leader to develop solutions and services to enable our enterprise customers to transition confidently to the cloud.
Vormetric is the leader in enterprise data security. The company?s technology foundation is encrypting data-at-rest and managing the encryption keys and access control for physical, virtual and cloud environments. Our data security solutions provide a single, centrally managed and scalable (to any size organization) solution to manage any key and encrypt any file or attachment (PDF files, Excel files, Word files, CAD files, etc.), any database (Oracle, IBM, MS SQL Server, MySQL, Progress, Sybase, etc), any application, anywhere it resides. This is done without sacrificing application performance while avoiding the complexity of key management. Further, deployment of the system, including data conversion, is implemented from a central location or single pane of glass for the enterprise.
Our data security products are proven solutions that provide stronger and broader data security at a fraction of the management and implementation cost of competitive solutions. They are successfully deployed on tens of thousands of servers. In fact, some of the largest and most security conscious organizations and government agencies in the world, including 17 of the top 25 Fortune 500 companies, have standardized on Vormetric.
Vormetric?s early success serving the largest enterprise-class customers puts it in a powerful position to help these same customers confidently embrace the cloud. The company has begun to engage leading SaaS and IaaS providers with its existing enterprise offering. SaaS and IaaS providers are responding with several successful sales engagements and other proof-of-concept engagements currently underway. Most of the existing SaaS and IaaS engagements are with providers in the Gartner Magic Quadrant leadership quadrant.
At Vormetric we see cloud service providers as a key enabler and channel to facilitate the company?s growth.
