Guy Flechter, an entrepreneur, developed Cider Security with Daniel Krivelevich, which he later sold to Palo Alto Networks for an amazing $300 million exit. This is Flechter’s second venture. At the time of the sale, cider had only been around for two years and had only raised $38 million.

However, as part of the integration process with Palo Alto, the American cyber giant founded by Nir Zuk, who currently employs around a thousand people in its Israeli development center, Cider was forced to fire a third of its roughly ninety employees soon after the deal.

The prompt sale subsequently made it possible for VC Glilot Capital, Cider’s first and largest investor, to repay the entirety of its third Seed fund. Flechter founded the new business four months ago after leaving Palo Alto, where he was the Chief AppSec Officer.
