Amir Zilberstein, co-founder and chairman of Claroty, said Vardi was a dynamic and highly accomplished entrepreneur with more than two decades of global executive leadership experience, and was appointed based on his proven and repeatable success growing companies significantly in the industrial space from startups to mature, profitable enterprises – "as he recently took a global business from dozens of millions to hundreds of millions of dollars in less than four years through mainly organic growth".
“We are living in a different world than we were even six months ago. Massive shifts have taken place in nearly every market imaginable, and industrial cybersecurity is no exception,” said Zilberstein said.
“Despite that, Claroty has had remarkable successes to date, including its recent record quarters, strong investment community, product innovation, and maturing executive team. The company is uniquely poised to be the pre-eminent leader in OT security and Yaniv’s skill set, vision, and expertise are what we need to get to our next level of impressive growth.”
“They are looking for a ‘one-stop-shop’ for their OT and industrial IoT needs through visibility, monitoring, threat detection, vulnerability management, remote access, and so on, and Claroty is the only company in this industry that is able to deliver this end-to-end platform.”
“I joined Claroty after a long journey of leading different solutions for the industrial space because I truly believe that with our talent, partners, and investors, we will lead the way in the OT security market."
The Claroty Platform offers the broadest set of security controls and unmatched OT protocol coverage, and the company itself has some of the best talent across both the cyber security and OT security industries.
