Founded in 2022 by industry veterans Shahar Man, formerly Vice President at Aqua Security and SAP, and Yossi Pik, formerly co-founder and CTO of FARMIGO, Backslash Security Inc. provides security and business context to the code risk, with the ability to track security posture of the different applications and teams involved. Backslash boasts that with its service AppSec teams can see and easily act upon the critical toxic code flows in their cloud-native applications; quickly prioritize code risks based on the relevant cloud context; and significantly cut MTTR (mean time to recovery). This gives developers the evidence they need to take ownership of the process.

Backed by StageOne Venture, First Ray Ventures, D. E. Shaw, and a roster of security veterans as angel investors, including technology entrepreneur and investor Shlomo Kramer, Ron Zoran, and Brian Fielder (General Manager at Microsoft + CTO Enterprise Security), Backslash has been deployed across leading technology organizations and Fortune 100 companies.

“Backslash has experienced founders, great investors and most importantly the right team of code and cloud experts. Together we’re delivering a new ‘fused’ paradigm of AppSec in the cloud – empowering skilled AppSec engineers with solutions for the cloud native workday,” said Shahar Man, CEO of Backslash.

“Yossi and I came to Backslash with a clear vision and the decades of experience required to bring it to reality. Together with our outstanding team of code and cloud experts and doctors, we’re doing just that. The end result is more confident, more secure, and far smoother cloud deployments – alongside more effective and more cost-effective AppSec.”
