Noname Security, the API cybersecurity platform, has announced the appointment of Ran Harpaz as Chief Operating Officer (COO). In his new role, Harpaz will oversee the customer journey to drive growth and customer satisfaction.
The move is part of the cybersecurity platform's plan to expand its operations around the world as many organisations are investing in foolproofing their cyber systems.
Harpaz brings more than two decades of industry experience in operations and business leaders working with hyper-growth technology companies. Prior to NoName, he served as COO and Chief Technology Officer at Hippo Insurance. He was also the founding CTO of Globality and has held the leading role at PayPal, McKinsey.
Oz Golan, Co-Founder and CEO at Noname Security said, "As we continue to grow, Ran is the perfect addition to our team focused not only on customer acquisition but customer happiness. Ran’s background is unmatched and we are excited to bring his energy and enthusiasm to Noname Security."
In a recent survey commissioned by Noname, 76% of respondents reported having suffered an API cyber security incident in the last 12 months. The potential threats have increased exponentially, as the volume of APIs organisation's leverage continues to rise. Analyst firm 451 Research released a survey earlier this year finding organizations have an average of 15,564 APIs in use and a growth rate of 201% over a 12-month period.
“The market opportunity for API Security is massive, as organisations continue to embrace digital transformation. I am honoured and invigorated to join the Noname leadership team at this pivotal time, and I look forward to helping drive the company towards its next phase of growth," said Ran Harpaz.
