So HackerOne, the one place where ethical hackers come and are free to do what they know how to do best which is hacking and even get paid for it. Some of the company’s major clients include Nintendo, Starbucks, and Uber.
These major companies rely on HackerOne to keep their customers safe and Just last year, the company awarded more than $19 million in bounties.
Koplow-McAdams has now been reported to be joining the board of execs. Koplow commenting on the move says “In my mind it’s a necessity that they have an ongoing approach in looking for vulnerabilities, It’s kind of like fresh eyes, understanding what’s really going on.”
Koplow has working experience woth enterprise tech firms such as stints at Oracle and Salesforce. she served as chief revenue officer and president at software analytics provider New Relic. Since last February, she has served as a board member at Duo Security, where she was learning the ins and outs of the security industry.
Koplow got the job post with a little help from her long time friend, HackerOne CEO Mårten Mickos. The two have been a long time friends and they occasionally even seek advice from each other so that was why when Mårten heard the board was looking to grow she knew exactly who to call. Mickos told Business Insider that “You can say the relationship has been building over a number of years, “In 2018, we decided it’s time to expand the board….I think there were many things that were a good fit and we sort of tried it out over a number of months to make sure there was a good fit, good chemistry, good alignment of strategy, good alignment of what we’re trying to do.”
Koplow looks to lead the company to greater heights and to also be a role model to women. She said “I have two daughters who will enter the workforce in the next five years, I want to be a role model for women who want to comfortably be part of the tech market.”
The company received a funding round early last year of $40 million. The company have clients of more than 1,200 who depend on them to find security flaws in their systems.
