My Story – Inspiring Journey of an Entrepreneur Featuring Slavik Markovich – Creating a leading security company worth $560 million in 4 years!
How do you create a business worth over $560 million within 4 years and turn it into a leading security company in the security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) space? Come and listen to Slavik Markovich explain how he and his team at Demisto did just that. Demisto was acquired by Palo Alto Networks for a total purchase price of $560 million early this year to accelerate Palo Alto Networks Application Framework strategy and serve as a critical step forward in the company's aim to deliver immediate threat prevention and response for security teams.
Demisto's Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) Platform combines orchestration, incident management and interactive investigation into a seamless experience. Demisto's orchestration engine automates security product tasks and weaves in human analyst tasks and workflows. Prior to acquisition, Demisto had already developed a highly effective go-to-market strategy with more than 150 customers, a quarter of which were Fortune 500 and included large organizations in healthcare, high technology, financial services and other industry verticals.
