2022 was a banner year for us at Apiiro. We achieved over 550% ARR growth, doubled our team, and closed a momentous $100M in Series B funding – a testament to the hard work of our incredible team and leadership. Despite the extremely crowded application security, cloud security, and software supply chain security markets, we’ve proven that our novel approach can rise above the noise to truly transform how cloud applications are built, released, and secured.
As we continue to disrupt the market in 2023, I am thrilled to announce that industry tech titan, Moti Gindi, is joining us as Apiiro’s chief product officer. Moti is a seasoned, highly sought-after security executive who brings a wealth of experience scaling teams with impressive speed and integrity to push Apiiro into the next phase of hypergrowth. Moti spent the last eight years at Microsoft as CVP of security and chief strategy officer, where he built and grew Microsoft Defender into a multi-billion dollar business and was the driving force behind its recognition as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms.
In his role as chief product officer, Moti will lead product strategy, product management, and security research practices to enhance the efficiency and scalability of the Apiiro platform and help grow the company into the market leader it’s destined to be. His experience and proven leadership skills will accelerate our mission to revolutionize the application security market by providing the context required to identify and remediate critical risks in a single platform.
As a former friend and colleague of mine, Moti has followed Apiiro’s journey since the start and believes our completely new approach to AppSec has put it in a position to disrupt the market and become a multi-billion dollar company in just a few short years. Moti truly supports Apiiro’s core values and believes that an inclusive, vibrant culture and customer-obsessed approach are essential components in delivering a product that solves real market challenges.
Looking ahead to the rest of 2023, we are excited – under Moti’s guidance – to release significant innovations and improvements across our application security, risk management, and software supply chain security capabilities. With our 100+ customers’ feedback as our north star, we will continue to empower development and security teams with the visibility and context they need to fix risks faster than ever.
Despite a turbulent climate, we are focused on scaling through efficiencies and continuing to hire across departments. So check out our current openings here to join our team of AppSec heroes!
