Cyberpion has announced the appointments of Ido Samson as CRO, Doron Gill as VP of Engineering, and Marc Gaffan as CEO. Nethanel Gelernter, a co-founder, will concentrate on fostering innovation and expanding Cyberpion’s EASM platform as he transitions from CEO to CTO.
Gaffan was most recently CEO of Hysolate, an endpoint security startup acquired by PerceptionPoint. Gaffan was also the co-founder and CEO of Incapsula, which was acquired by Imperva.
Gill comes from Logz.io, where he worked in a similar capacity. His primary responsibility as head of engineering will be to scale the engineering organization in order to accelerate development and feature velocity. Samson comes to Hysolate as Vice President of Sales.
Nethanel Gelernter, co-founder of Cyberpion stated, “We experienced strong growth in 2022 and see even more opportunity in the year ahead. Bringing in experienced, proven growth executives like Marc to scale the business will allow me to focus all my energy on product innovation and differentiation. EASM is a growing and competitive market, and we are seizing this opportunity in 2023.”
Marc Gaffan, CEO of Cyberpion commented, “Fully understanding and managing the organization’s external attack surface has become a major concern and a high priority for most security teams.
A large area that is currently being overlooked by many organizations is their hyper-connected attack surface, the third-party infrastructures that their systems connect to and are reliant on but are out of their control. This can be up to four times larger in size and significantly more complicated to manage and control. From an attacker’s perspective, it’s part of their playing field as they try to hack their way into the organization’s IT fabric.”
Rik Turner, Omdia Senior Principal Analyst, Cybersecurity said, “The EASM market is an expanding segment of late, as unfettered cloud migration and the broader trend of digital transformation drive an explosion of public-facing assets on the internet. The security challenges raised by this situation are leading organizations to adopt more proactive security approaches like EASM, both to complement and reduce the workload of reactive technologies such as XDR.
This has driven a lot of M&A activity over the last couple of years, as larger security vendors have become aware of the need to move into this space, but there is definitely still room for innovative start-ups with a differentiated way of working, like Cyberpion.”
