  1. Erkang Zheng can and does contribute to every facet of the business. His key strengths are his vision, his empathy, and his deep cyber security skill set. He was a former CISO and it shows. He knows the pain points around building and running a mature security and compliance program from the ground up. He can build credibility and partnerships with elite VCs, investors, and advisors with ease. He can understand and close a sale with an enterprise customer. He still answers support questions for customers with questions in our community Slack workspace. He still guides the design and even contributes new and useful code for our product. He also trains and mentors new employees. Erkang Zheng has no off button, and is an expert in every aspect of our business. I’ve never seen nor heard of any CEO able to lead and contribute to all ends of the tech business spectrum the way Erkang Zheng can.

  2. Erkang is an excellent leader who works collaboratively with his staff at all levels. He has extensive experience in cybersecurity across multiple verticals, which means he is able to provide guidance and insights into specific industry challenges, like HIPAA compliance in healthcare or SOC2 compliance which is unrelated to our company but relevant to a subset of our customers. He has an open door policy and welcomes feedback as well as healthy discussion. We all have a level of comradery with Erkang that is pretty rare coming from the CEO level, but is one of the many ways he creates a work culture that truly cannot be beat!

  3. Erkang is truly visionary with the platform he has built at JupiterOne, and as a security practitioner, has created a tool that solves a critical need for all security professionals. Beyond the platform, Erkang is incredibly focused on building a strong culture at J1 – he is smart, approachable and accountable – traits which permeate all that we do as a team. While he holds the title of CEO, nothing is off limits for him – he is just as comfortable working with our customers on support issues as he is interacting with other executives – he views it all as work that must be done in order for J1 to realize its vision.

  4. Erkang has an extremely technical background allowing him to create code and commit new product features on a weekly basis, however he’s not just a technical founder. He is a full CEO with excellent leadership abilities, is able to not only build technology but also build a business in both human and operational capacities. Erkang has tripled JupiterOne’s head count in 8 months while also tripling revenue. He understands leading with empathy and does an excellent job of getting his team galvanized behind him
