Reinventing the Secure Development Lifecycle

We are pioneers. We invented the industry-first Code Risk Platform™. A 360° view of security and compliance risks, from design to production, across applications, infrastructure, developers’ knowledge, and business impact.


Our mission

To build a unified platform for Dev, Sec & Ops and enable organizations worldwide to reduce risk at the design phase in order to deliver secure products faster.

We are taking an entirely new approach that transforms Application Security into Multidimensional Application Risk. From Design to Code to Cloud.

The Story

As the owner of product risk for large engineering groups at Microsoft, Idan was responsible for prioritizing, remediating and communicating risk to upper management. He had a daily challenge in doing so because the existing security and compliance tools and processes are mostly manual and periodic, with a 'developers-last' approach. Yonatan, who led engineering teams at Microsoft, experienced holdbacks and slowdowns in product delivery, in order to integrate controls and satisfy risk management demands. Idan and Yonatan realized that existing processes around secure SDLC, while well-established for waterfall methodology, don’t work with agile. Especially when developing applications and infrastructure across on-premises and multicloud. Together, they founded Apiiro to reinvent secure development lifecycle for modern, agile development teams and bridging the gap between CISOs & CIOs.

Since we launched one year ago, Apiiro's platform is being used by some of the largest enterprises in the world to analyze code, text and knowledge of millions of developers, security architects and champions across 1M+ code repositories and ticketing systems.
