You are probably here because we either met in real life or are going to have a meeting soon. So, first of all - it’s a pleasure meeting you! Now, let me tell you a bit about myself:
In 2007, I have founded and managed Collactive together with Amir Hirsh. Collactive has been helping global clients to protect and promote their interests on social media using a unique technological solution. Collactive was acquired by IAI on 2012.
In 2004, Amir Hirsh and I invented a deterrence solution for spam and founded Blue Security. Blue provided a working Do-Not-Spam registry for more than 500,000 email addresses. As a result, Blue Security and its customers were the target to arguably the largest cyber attack in the history of the Internet, forcing Blue Security to shut down its service. The Blue Security story was covered by many news outlets from the BBC and to the Washington Post.
In 2001, I teamed up with Gidi Cohen and Moshe Meiseles and invented a method for automating security risk assessment . Together, we founded Skybox Security to help the largest corporations in the world prevent cyber threats, reduce risk exposure and demonstrate network compliance with regulations. In 2016, Skybox was acquired by Providence Strategic Growth at a valuation of $110 million and has raised $150 million in 2017.
I founded and managed Sanctum together with GiliRaanan in 1997. In Sanctum, we invented the market leading web application security assessment suite. Sanctum was eventually acquired by IBM and its products were sold as Rational's AppScan. IBM later sold AppScan and several other software products to HCL for $1.8 billion.
Prior to Sanctum, I was an officer in an Israeli elite intelligence unit.
