Today, I am excited and proud to announce that Siemplify has been acquired by Google.
This marks an important milestone in the Siemplify journey. When co-founders Alon Cohen and Garry Fatakhov and I started Siemplify in 2015, we all knew, from our experience building and training security operations centers from around the world, that security operations was a function in dire need of innovation. Naturally, security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) as a category did not yet exist, and as is often the case with startups, we had to keep innovating, working with customers and listening to the market in order to build a security operations platform that truly improves the way security teams respond to cyberthreats.
Today, the Siemplify platform is trusted by many of the world’s leading security teams, from Fortune 500 companies to world-class MSSPs. The challenges we set out to solve are only becoming more profound, and organizations are facing an unprecedented volume of cybersecurity threats – all as the shortage of skilled personnel to address these threats remains at an all-time high. There is a need and opportunity to grow our business to meet these challenges.
Enter Google Cloud.
Beyond Google’s resources, expertise and overall commitment to cybersecurity (including a recent pledge to invest $10 billion in cybersecurity over the next five years), we have found a remarkable partner in Google Cloud. A partner that truly shares our mission, vision, values and culture. We could not be more excited to join forces with Google Cloud to drive innovation and help many more security teams take their operations to a whole new level.
We want to thank our customers and partners for their ongoing business and trust in our team. With Google Cloud’s commitments to delivering an open ecosystem, minimizing vendor lock-in and leveraging best-in-breed solutions, as well as its support for multi-cloud environments, we truly believe that together we will deliver more innovation while staying true to our values.
On a personal note, I want to thank everyone who contributed to Siemplify’s success – our customers, partners, investors, advisers and, above all, the amazing Siemplify team. I am extremely proud of our achievement, which is a direct result of all the hard work, soul and dedication that you have poured into Siemplify throughout the years.
