Cybereason adds two women to its senior management team

Cybereason, creators of the cybersecurity data analytics platform including endpoint detection and response, next-generation antivirus, and active monitoring services, announced the hiring of Hemdat Cohen-Shraga as vice president of Engineering and Ronny Maate as vice president of Product.

Cybereason has a heritage of hiring talented women and both Cohen-Shraga and Maate will further strengthen Cybereason’s award-winning product team.

This news comes days before International Women Day on March 8. According to The Global Gender Gap Report 2017, women, on average, tend to be under-represented in technology fields. Cybereason collaborates closely with the Woman 2 Woman Community, founded by Unit 8200 alumni with the vision of leading change in Israeli society by creating professional opportunities for women when they complete their mandatory Israeli military service.

In addition, Cybereason’s Emmy Linder will be participating on a panel at the upcoming RSA Conference, titled “The Untold Story of 8200: A Launching Point for Women in Cybersecurity” taking place Tuesday, April 17, 1:00 pm. Linder is retired from Unit 8200, the prestigious intelligence unit of the Israeli Defense Forces.

It has proven to be a launching point for many of today’s female leaders in the cybersecurity industry. Panelists will discuss how advanced military training helped them launch their post military careers.

Cohen-Shraga oversees Cybereason’s global engineering team in Tel Aviv, including research and development, machine learning scientists, architects, development and QA. The various engineering teams focus on advancing Cybereason’s Enterprise Attack Protection Platform.

“I’m excited to be part of an incredibly talented R&D team with huge ambitions to create and innovate. I enjoy the amazing challenge of taking Cybereason to the next stage of its growth from startup to an established company with many of the largest brands relying on us to keep their proprietary data out of the hands of cyber criminals,” said Cohen-Shraga.

Maate leads the product management team, focusing on the company’s product roadmap, ongoing platform releases and further expansion of the company’s award-winning Enterprise Attack Protection Platform.

“The talent of the team at Cybereason is incredible and I love working with them to understand the customers’ pain points and then transform those pain points into new features and functionality in our platform that bring our customers value,” said Maate.

“Cybereason hires world-class talent, and we are extremely excited to strengthen our management team by hiring Hemdat and Ronny. They are already making a profound impact on future innovations,” said Emmy Linder, head of Global Operations, Cybereason.

“Cybereason understands the magnitude of the cybersecurity problem better than anyone. Our award-winning platform is a game changer because antiquated security products on the market no longer protect enterprises from sophisticated fileless malware, powershell and destructive ransomware attacks — and we protect it all.”
