Cybereason Names Cybersecurity Pioneer Zohar Alon President of Product and R&D

Apr 20, 2023

Cybereason, the XDR company, today named entrepreneur  and cybersecurity pioneer Zohar Alon as President of Cybereason Israel to oversee Product and R&D. He joins Cybereason with more than 25 years of industry experience and will be responsible for driving product strategy for the company’s defense platform, which includes industry-leading XDR, EDR and EPP solutions. 

Alon joins Cybereason to support the company’s global growth and advance its innovation. The company recently secured $100 million in funding with SoftBank Corp. and announced  its placement by Gartner, Inc. as a Leader in the 2022 Magic Quadrant for Endpoint  Protection Platforms. Coupled with the company’s historic success in the 2022 MITRE  ATT&CK evaluations, the company is trusted throughout the world to end modern cyber attacks. 

Alon is a cyber security pioneer, serial entrepreneur and investor. As one of the early employees at Check Point, Zohar created Provider-1, the first security management solution for MSSPs. Zohar was also a founder of Dome9 Security, which defined and led the Cloud  Security Posture Management category before it was acquired by Check Point in 2018. Zohar  additionally provides his guidance and expertise as a board member for several cyber security  companies including FireFly, Blindspot Security, Adaptive Shield, Tamnoon and Holistic Cyber. 

“Joining Cybereason during this pivotal time is what excites me about the challenge ahead.  The recent Gartner and MITRE recognition illustrates the many clear reasons why the  company is trusted throughout the world to end cyberattacks. I look forward to leading  Cybereason’s next stage of product innovation. The company’s proprietary MalOp(malicious operation) detection engine moves security teams from the alert-centric wasteland to the operation-centric efficiency demanded to end today’s modern security  threats,” said Alon.
