After almost two decades in the cybersecurity industry with two acquisitions under our belts, I feel that this is a unique and exciting time for me and for the entire apiiro team.
Today we are coming out of stealth to disrupt the DevSecOps market with $35M backed by the top-tier VCs Greylock Partners and Kleiner Perkins.
We are honored to partner with Ted Schlein, Saam Motamedi, Asheem Chandna and Rakesh Loonkar, investors in Palo Alto Networks (PANW:NYSE), Fortify (HP acquired), AlienVault (AT&T acquired), ArcSight (HP acquired), Carbon Black (CBLK:NASDAQ), AppDynamics (Cisco acquired), Mandiant (FireEye acquired), Phantom (Splunk acquired), Amazon and Google.
It's all about the change! The idea behind apiiro started from a technical and business pain. The pain we felt while moving from the waterfall development methodology to agile at Microsoft.
We assessed product risk at the design on each application and infrastructure change. This was done using manual and periodic security, and compliance processes with a ‘developers-last’ approach. The developers-last approach was exasperating to developers and security alike. On the business side, the process slowed us down from scaling the business.
We decided that it’s time to make a change!
