Amir Ben-Efraim, Co-founder of Menlo Security - A Mission to 100% Eliminate Malware

Inside the episode

Released August 2, 2021

"The combination of technology and business is what makes an entrepreneur." - Amir Ben-Efraim

Menlo was founded, in part, because five cybersecurity experts were fed up. Security products should stop bad things from happening — but they didn’t.

Founding his second company on the premise of “Hey, we can do better” has taken this entrepreneur all the way to validation in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant within a decade. Discover lessons learned from the acquisition of Amir's first company and the wild success of his second one.

Other topics discussed:

• Menlo Security’s origin story
• The balance of business and technology in entrepreneurship
• What Amir learned from founding Altor
• Validation from Gartner and tracking the competition
