Former CVP of Security Products at Microsoft Joins Apiiro

Apiiro, a leader in cloud-native application security, announced that Moti Gindi, former CVP of security products at Microsoft has joined the company as chief product officer to scale the business and execute on its mission to empower developers and application security engineers to fix risks before releasing to the cloud, with all the context they need in a single platform.

In this role, Gindi will leverage his experience as a seasoned security and product executive to drive Apiiro into the next phase of hypergrowth by leading its product strategy, product management and security research to evolve and scale the Apiiro Cloud Application Security Platform.

While at Microsoft, Gindi established and led Microsoft endpoint security (Defender) from an internal incubation to a multi-billion dollar business that scaled to protect tens of thousands of customers and earned industry recognition as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms.

He was the driving force behind the Defender product, consistently broadening its boundaries and scope, including the acquisition and integration of Hexadite ltd. for automatic remediation, and establishment of the broader Defender XDR vision and product, recognized as a market leader among industry players including CrowdStrike and Palo Alto Networks.

In the last year, Gindi was chief strategy officer for Microsoft Security. In this role, he reported to Charlie Bell, EVP of security and was responsible for Microsoft Security’s cross-products strategy and long-range investment plan.

Apiiro introduced a different approach to application security by providing contextual visibility into code bases, assessing risks from design to code to the cloud, and proactively fixing actual, exploitable risks before releasing to the cloud. This enables any company, including many Fortune 500, to reduce operational costs and risks at scale with seamless deployment.
