Armis Appoints Efraim Harari as Chief Legal Officer
In his new role, Efi will build a high-capacity legal function and work closely with the office of the Chief Financial Officer and the extended Armis executive team as the company continues to expand its operations and execution capabilities. Efi’s mission will be to develop the company’s legal operations, ensure top-notch legal support to all functional teams, support the successful closure of large Fortune 100 deals, and boost the company’s overall preparedness to meet its strategic goals.
Armis’ CEO and Co-founder, Yevgeny Dibrov, expressed his excitement about Efi’s appointment, stating, “As a fast-growing company, Armis often explores uncharted territory, analyzing opportunities and assessing risk in pursuit of larger ambitions. The legal function is centric on these efforts, so we’re thrilled to have Efi join our team as the head of our legal department. His experience over his nearly two-decade-long career thus far – especially the critical role he played in taking both SentinelOne and Zendesk public – make him a key, strategic hire for Armis.”
Efi brings over eighteen years of experience helping global tech companies grow, scale, and succeed by way of legal, compliance, and operational excellence, having most recently served as Chief of Staff and previously Chief Legal Officer of SentinelOne. During his time at SentinelOne, Efi built several teams and functions and was instrumental in the company’s growth and ultimate IPO process. Previously, Efi held senior positions at Zendesk, Kerio Technologies, and several leading law firms.
