Itay Glick is the CEO and co-founder of Votiro Ltd, a startup company that develops and licenses solutions that protect networks and infrastructures from external cyber threats. Votiro’s solutions have been implemented at government and law enforcement agencies and at numerous customer sites in finance and banking, defense, telecom, pharmaceuticals, and other industries.
After completing a BSc in electrical engineering and electronics at the Technion, Itay gained extensive experience designing and developing security components for networks and operating systems during his military service in an elite intelligence unit of the Israel Defense Forces. As a group leader, he oversaw the operations and integration of projects valued at over $10 million. He went on to round out his education with an MBA at Bar-Ilan University, where he concentrated in finance. At Verint Systems, a well-known company in the field of cyber security, Itay served as a systems architect.
Responsible for several projects valued at $50 million each, Itay gathered customer requirements, designed the appropriate solution for addressing the requirements, allocated the tasks to developers, and managed a unit of 50 people.
The expertise and leadership experience that Itay gained from his military service and his role at Verint helped him acquire the skills and systems perspective that prepared him for founding Votiro and leading the company today as its CEO.
Along with one co-founder, Itay started Votiro from scratch in 2009, with no outside funding. Within one year, he had brought the company to profitability, enabling it to sustain 10 employees to this day and carry out worldwide sales.
