Amos Stern is helping to solve one of the biggest and most expensive risks facing businesses: data breaches. The security operations center (SOC) within an organization is tasked with detecting and responding to cyber issues that could lead to breaches. But SOC teams are underperforming due to rapidly increasing numbers of threat alerts, an over-reliance on manual processes, skills shortages and more, meaning the bad guys are getting away with big data thefts before anyone catches on. That’s why Amos co-founded Siemplify, manufacturer of a security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) platform. Last year, the company launched the industry’s first-ever cloud-native SOAR, and now roughly 75% of new Siemplify customers are deploying the cloud version of the Siemplify Security Operations Platform. It makes SOCs more efficient and effective. Think Salesforce but for security operations teams. But launching a cloud product meant a fundamental shift as a company toward being a SaaS vendor — and Amos has overseen this transition with a steady hand, instilling confidence and optimism with a focus on communication and collaboration. Prior to Siemplify, Amos led the cybersecurity department within the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) Intelligence Corps. Outside the office – when he’s not snowboarding – Amos pays his good fortune forward by delivering keynotes on cybersecurity and advising early-stage startups. And not surprisingly, Amos wants everyone to have access to computers, including the disabled, which is why he is a regular contributor to Open Sesame’s efforts to make “touch free, free for all.” Amos is not only altruistic, but also a rising star and business thought leader, guiding a fast-growing company that plays in the hottest corner of the cybersecurity market. He turned a fledgling operation into the leading independent SOAR provider, transitioning headquarters from Tel Aviv (which still houses R&D) to New York. Now with over 160 employees, Siemplify, under Amos’ direction, stands to have its most explosive year yet.
