HYPR appoints VP Engineering to drive passwordless authentication adoption

HYPR has appointed cloud engineering industry veteran Adam Abrevaya as Vice President of Engineering to accelerate innovation and passwordless authentication adoption, the company announced.

Abrevaya has more than thirty years of experience in the software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform and security industries where he worked with engineering teams to deliver software products to market.

“We couldn’t be happier to welcome Adam Abrevaya to HYPR,” said HYPR Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Bojan Simic in a prepared statement. “His extensive experience in SaaS deployment and security will be invaluable to scaling passwordless authentication across millions of users. Adam brings a wealth of knowledge from his years as a leader and direct contributor of world-class engineering teams. His positive influence is already being felt across HYPR.”

Before coming aboard HYPR, Abrevaya was VP of Engineering at CloudHealth Technologies, where he developed enterprise products to move services to the cloud. The company was purchased by VMware in October 2018. Before CloudHealth Technologies, Abrevaya served a similar position at NuoDB where he worked on high-availability distributed database systems for mission-critical applications.

Previous roles include Director Engineering at m-Qube, purchased by VeriSign where he also served as Director Engineering. Abrevaya had executive leadership roles at Pantero Corporation acquired by Progress and Object Design, Inc.

“I’m thrilled to be working with the talented team at HYPR, and look forward to helping to accelerate the mass adoption of standards based passwordless authentication technology,” said Abrevaya, in the statement.

HYPR has also reported 3.5-times year-over-year revenue growth last year, a 200 percent increase in team headcount, and more than 40 million users deployed worldwide. The company announced an $18.3 million funding round in the second half of last year.
