BOSTON and TEL AVIV — October 26, 2021 — Aqua Security, the leading pure-play cloud native security provider, today announced the appointment of Limor Schwartz as Chief Financial Officer. With more than 20 years of leadership experience in financial roles, Limor will join the executive team to spearhead the company’s aggressive growth strategy.
Focused on hypergrowth, M&A and IPO, Schwartz brings two decades of experience holding roles in rapidly growing technology companies within the security, telecom and healthcare industries. She joins Aqua Security from Sygnia (acquired by Temasek), a cyber technology and services company, where she served as CFO since incorporation, leading finance, driving strategy and scale, before and after the company’s acquisition in 2018. Prior to Sygnia, Schwartz served as CFO for several startup companies, including Team8, APOS, Traffix Systems (acquired by F5 Networks) and cVidya Networks. She also held a global role at PwC.
“Limor’s expertise and leadership will be a huge advantage for Aqua as we drive toward our next phase of growth,” said Dror Davidoff, CEO of Aqua Security. “As the industry’s first and only unified Cloud Native Application Protection Platform vendor, or CNAPP, we are leading the industry in innovation and scaling rapidly to address accelerating demand. As we continue to expand globally, Limor will play an integral role in defining our strategy for rapid growth.”
“It is a pivotal time to join the Aqua Security team,” said Limor Schwartz, CFO of Aqua Security. “The dramatic shift toward cloud native application development requires an equally dramatic shift in security, and Aqua’s innovative solutions address this need. I look forward to applying my experience to help the company achieve its vision, capitalize on a massive market opportunity as the CNAPP category leader and ultimately build a great business for our customers.”
Following its $135M Series E funding round in March 2021, Aqua has bolstered its executive leadership with four new C-suite appointments. Other key hires include Aqua’s first-ever Chief Customer Officer, Sharon Eilon, first-ever Chief Marketing Officer, Matt Richards, and the appointment of Christopher Smith as Chief Revenue Officer. These executives bring experience in scaling businesses to help Aqua Security accelerate financial and customer growth and aid other global business goals.
