A good cybersecurity startup has high revenues and a substantial client list, according to Dan Amiga, the co-founder and chief technology officer of Tel Aviv-based cybersecurity startup Fireglas. Amiga spoke Monday at a panel hosted by Calcalist reporter Sophie Shulman as part of Calcalist’s Cyber 2020 conference, held at shared office venture Labs at Tel Aviv’s Azrieli Sarona tower. Achieving these goals is far from trivial in today’s overcrowded sector, he said.

 

Fireglass, acquired by Symantec in 2017, develops a safe web browsing technology that enables users to view online content without actually running the original webpage script on their computer. What makes a company successful from an investor’s point of view is the ability to pay the entrepreneurs and investors back, Yair Cassuto, partner at Pitango Venture Capital, said on the same panel.
