Armis have announced the appointment of Efraim (Efi) Harari to Chief Legal Officer, which is timely news to Armis as they seek to strengthen its corporate governance operational capacity, as part of the company’s journey to a potential initial public offering (IPO).
In his role, Efi will build a high-capacity legal function and work closely with the office of the Chief Financial Officer and the extended Armis executive team, as the company continues to expand its operations and execution capabilities.
Efi will develop the company’s legal operations, ensure top-notch legal support to all functional teams, support the successful closure of large Fortune 100 deals, and boost the company’s overall preparedness to meet its strategic goals.
“As a fast-growing company, Armis often explores uncharted territory, analysing opportunities and assessing risk in pursuit of larger ambitions,” said Yevgeny Dibrov, CEO and Co-founder of Armis. “The legal function is centric to these efforts, so we’re thrilled to have Efi join our team as the head of our legal department.
“His experience over his nearly two-decade-long career thus far – especially the critical role he played in taking both SentinelOne and Zendesk public – make him a key, strategic hire for Armis.”
Efi brings over 18 years of experience helping global tech companies grow, scale and succeed by way of legal, compliance and operational excellence, having most recently served as Chief of Staff and previously Chief Legal Officer of SentinelOne.
During his time at SentinelOne, Efi built several teams and functions and was instrumental in the company’s growth and ultimate IPO process.
Previously, Efi held senior positions at Zendesk, Kerio Technologies, and several leading law firms. He holds a Bachelor of Law degree from Bar Ilan University in Israel and a master’s degree from Stanford Law School.
“Armis is on an incredible path and Efi is poised to join the leadership team at this time to support the company’s next phase of growth,” said Teddie Wardi, Managing Director at Insight Partners and member of the Board of Directors at Armis. “We’re happy to have him stay within the Insight Partners family and see him land at another portfolio company of ours, enabling him to work side-by-side with another incredible team of entrepreneurs that are bringing ground-breaking technology to the market.”
“As an active participant in the cyber tech industry I’ve been aware of Armis’ groundbreaking technology and growth path for some time now,” said Efi. “Coming into Armis is a great honoor, and I’m looking forward to contributing to the company’s growth and success given my highly relevant industry and legal experience.
“Armis’ excellence and execution culture is a great fit for my skill set and high energy, especially as the company continues to grow at a rapid clip and gain recognition as an innovative, market-leading cybersecurity company.
“I’m also excited for our path forward and achievements to come alongside my Armis teammates. It is an exceptional honour to be a part of a company that protects organisations and individuals from malicious actors every day.”
