Security solutions provider Conventus has tapped InfoSec veteran Jason Eberhardt as its new vice president of strategic alliances.
Eberhardt will work closely with alliance partner executives and Conventus engineers on business-development projects and pre-sales technical support delivery. Prior to joining the Conventus team, Eberhardt led the national security practice group and was then named business development director at a California-based IT security and development company, where he built relationships with vital players in the InfoSec industry nationwide. Before that, he served as CTO and in senior engineering roles at Santa Barbara, California-area IT professional services, financial services and fund management companies.
“Today it’s more critical than ever to have the right resources in place to protect companies from security attacks and data breaches,” Eberhardt said. “I’m so excited to represent an industry leader in the InfoSec space and to have the opportunity to broaden the relationships I’ve built over the years in the industry. Conventus brings incredible expertise and innovation to the table on the security technologies and consulting side; the opportunities to leverage our engineering talent to drive joint business development initiatives with partners are virtually limitless.”
Eberhardt is busy reaching out to top executives at alliance partner company headquarters, as well as to contacts located at field operations nationwide to further educate them about what Conventus can do and explore opportunities to work together to develop new business. He is also evaluating additional partner certification programs and analyzing financial models to identify new revenue potential.
Conventus, a certified Symantec National Platinum Partner, creates solutions designed to improve endpoint and server security and promote compliance and data loss prevention at the enterprise level.
