IRONSCALES’ combination of machine learning and human awareness stands out as a phishing remediation solution that is unique to the cybersecurity industry.

IRONSCALES, the first and only email security company to combine human intelligence with machine learning, today announced that veteran cybersecurity expert and business leader, Tsahy Shapsa, has joined the company’s board of directors. In 2007, Shapsa co-founded Cloudlock, Inc., a cloud security provider, which was acquired by Cisco in 2016 for $293 million. Based in Boston, Shapsa will play a key role in spearheading IRONSCALES’ strategy around business development, sales and overall growth.

“With phishing being the number one deliverable for ransomware and malware, it’s more important than ever for enterprises to prioritize email security with automatic remediation capabilities,” said Shapsa. “IRONSCALES’ combination of machine learning and human awareness stands out as a phishing remediation solution that is unique to the cybersecurity industry. I look forward to offering my guidance and expertise as the company continues to build on its strong momentum.”

As a member of the board of directors, Shapsa will be responsible for developing growth strategy and long-term operational and financial planning, as well as overseeing the company’s performance. Prior to Cloudlock, Shapsa’s 20-year career includes various business and technology management roles with companies such as Sun Microsystems, acquired by Oracle, and NetApp both domestically and internationally. Shapsa has also served as the Israeli Prime Minister’s office as a security team leader.

“Tsahy is an internationally-recognized security leader, and his breadth of knowledge in scaling businesses from startup through acquisition will be instrumental in our efforts to bring IRONSCALES to the critical mass,” said Eyal Benishti, founder and CEO of IRONSCALES. “I’m thrilled to have him on our board and confident in his ability to help us facilitate growth effectively.”

IRONSCALES is the first and only email security provider to combine human intelligence with machine learning to automatically prevent, detect and respond to phishing attacks in real-time. Its employee-based intrusion prevention system is the first phishing solution with an automatic one-click response, which expedites the time from phishing attack to remediation from weeks to seconds, without ever needing the SOC team's involvement. Headquartered in Raanana, Israel, IRONSCALES was founded by a team of security researchers, IT and penetration testing experts, as well as specialists in the field of effective interactive training, in response to the increasing phishing epidemic that today costs companies millions of dollars annually. It was incubated in the 8200 EISP, the top program for cyber security ventures, founded by alumni of the Israel Defense Forces’ elite Intelligence Technology unit.
