We are a highly skilled team of software security and engineering professionals, boasting a collective experience of many decades in both hands-on work and management roles.
Our expertise lies in security research and development and privacy engineering.
As white-hat security researchers our background includes hacking Android and iPhone devices, breaking in Windows and browsers and even penetrating F100 corporate networks.
Previously we founded a boutique cybersecurity firm which was later acquired, and we held a unique position of leading and managing product security and privacy over 700 engineers.
We started Piiano because the internet needs great infrastructure to protect sensitive data at scale.
We prioritize the customer experience in everything we build and do, from product to support.
We design our products to encourage developers to build securely.
Collecting customer data is both a privilege and a responsibility. It must be protected with modern infrastructure.
We believe in building infrastructure that lasts and changes the industry.
We take pride in what we do and want to work only with like-minded people.
We believe that everything begins with good people first.
Problems We Solve
Piiano was founded in 2021 by Gil Dabah (CEO) and Ariel Shiftan, PhD (CTO). They have been working together for over 13 years now.
The duo has been frustrated with how the security industry keeps on trying to fight data breaches with detection-based technologies. Coming GDPR, it gives new meaning and techniques on how to work with customer personal data.
They saw a clear need in highly regulated industries for a fresh take on protecting data at the core. And an opportunity to build engineering infrastructure to solve both privacy and security application level problems.
Based in Tel Aviv, Israel, and now working with a team of 20, Gil and Ariel continue to push the Piiano Paradigm of how enterprises should tackle data protection in scale.
