Accelerates secure software delivery by 70%

Apps are the face of the modern company, but as the building blocks of our digital world, they’re also a prime target for attackers. According to a 2021 AppSec Stats Flash report from WhiteHat Security, more than 40 percent of applications are actively leaking data, potentially exposing sensitive information.

In today's coding environment, keeping such vulnerabilities at bay is a growing challenge. Security issues become more complex as software development accelerates and businesses use agile models to deploy more apps, faster. The result? Traditional application security tools can't effectively improve a company's security posture – because risks don't stem from a single code change or misconfiguration, but from an intricate combination of multiple factors. That's where Apiiro comes in.

Security born and raised in the cloud

Apiiro is a new kind of AppSec platform. It helps businesses break down barriers between security and developers. Created by co-founders Yonatan Eldar and Idan Plotnik, who experienced the expansion of security needs first-hand when their previous startup saw massive growth, Apiiro helps businesses remediate critical risks in cloud-native applications. With specialized dashboards, development and security teams gain comprehensive visibility into their assets and repositories. They can then identify and remediate risks quickly, both on-premises and in the cloud.

Born and raised in the cloud, Apiiro was built on distributed microservices from the start. Speed of development was top of mind for the founders, and one of the main reasons that Apiiro decided to select Google Cloud. "We experimented with all the major vendors, and what stood out about Google Cloud was its ease of use," says Eldar, Apiiro's Chief Technology Officer. "That starts with the fact that we can use Google Workspace to authenticate and easily access all the Google Cloud tools and attribute the right permissions to everyone. The platform is incredibly well organized, which is a major plus."

Delivering flawless service with 99,999% uptime

During the implementation phase, the Apiiro team enlisted support from Google Cloud partner DoiT International to help optimize their Google Cloud environment. "The DoiT International team was really responsive in hearing us out, connecting us with the right people, and troubleshooting issues during implementation," says Eldar. Apiiro now uses Google Kubernetes Engine to run its workflows in containers and securely stores its container images in Container Registry.

After more than three years of use, Eldar gave top marks to the reliability of Google Cloud: "For Apiiro as a business, uptime is one of our most important metrics. Because we are multi-cloud and multi-region, we're resilient. But any downtime, even within the parameters defined by Service Level Agreements, can hurt our reputation and prevent our customers from achieving the value we need to deliver. With Google Cloud, we've achieved an uptime of 99,999%, enabling us to provide flawless service."

Boosting productivity with a top-notch developer experience

High availability isn't just a prerequisite for a good customer experience, it's also a key KPI for developer productivity and satisfaction. However, uptime is just part of the recipe that makes Google Cloud such a developer-friendly platform for the Apiiro team, says Eldar: "Besides the fact that it's always on, our developers enjoy working with Google Cloud for three main reasons: The Google Cloud UI and dashboards are incredibly intuitive, comprehensive documentation facilitates trying out new things, and the command line tools of gcloud CLI make it easy to manage Google Cloud resources. All these aspects enable new developers to hit the ground running when they join Apiiro."

Building a shared culture of security

With the right team and the right tech, Apiiro can deliver on its security promises. As with any security company, trust is among the most important assets of Apiiro, and that trust needs to extend to the company's partners and vendors. With high compliance and security standards, Eldar considers Google Cloud a great fit for that mission. "We hold ourselves to the highest security standards and we expect the same from our partners," he says. "Google Cloud more than fits the bill in that regard, helping us to maintain customer trust with transparency, and an excellent compliance and security profile."

When it comes to the trust between Apiiro and Google Cloud, Eldar credits the quality of support and care: "Throughout my career, I've worked with many account managers, and one thing that really sets Google Cloud apart are the people. We've been working with some of the same people from the very beginning, and whenever we need to get in touch, we can count on receiving helpful and honest answers."

Kick-starting the next growth phase on Google Marketplace

Eldar is especially excited about the newest milestone of the partnership with Google Cloud: customers can now find and deploy Apiiro's solution via the Google Cloud Marketplace. This will help Apiiro reach an even bigger audience. "No matter how great your product is, getting exposure to the public and finding new distribution channels is a major challenge for every startup, including Apiiro," says Eldar. "That’s why we’re so excited to be able to leverage the reach of Google Cloud, which gives us an opportunity to connect with organizations that might not have discovered us otherwise. It's a real opportunity for business growth."

There are exciting times ahead for Apiiro and looking back on the journey so far, Eldar is happy to have fast-tracked the startup's journey with its trusted partner Google Cloud. "Google Cloud provides an excellent environment for both new and experienced developers to dive into and find their way. It's been a critical asset for scaling our business, and we're excited to keep growing with Google Cloud."
