10 Years of SafeBreach: Our Journey as the Pioneers in BAS

Join us as we reflect on the professional milestones and personal memories from our decade-long journey in the breach and attack simulation industry. 

We all know cybersecurity is a team sport—one that is enhanced and optimized by the collective knowledge of a committed community. In 2014, Guy Bejerano and Itzik Kotler set out with a lofty goal to make a significant contribution to that community—not only by developing a powerful breach and attack simulation (BAS) platform designed to help organizations take a more proactive approach to security, but also by building a world-renowned team of security experts and thought leaders who were passionate about improving security on a global level. 

Thanks to their vision—and the unwavering support of our employees, customers, and partners—SafeBreach has the honor of celebrating its 10-year anniversary this month. As we reflect on this journey, it is clear that so many individuals have played a significant role in the collective successes we’ve been able to achieve. We hope you’ll follow along this month as we highlight some of the personal and professional milestones, memories, and accomplishments that have been a part of SafeBreach’s decade-long journey as the pioneer in the BAS industry.

From opening our doors in 2014 to making our 15th BlackHat appearance in 2024, the last 10 years have seen some exciting milestones and accomplishments for the SafeBreach team. Check out highlights from our journey below.
