Cynet, the autonomous XDR platform provider, has appointed IT security leader Bruno Darmon as Chief Strategy Officer. Darmon brings over 25 years of high-tech leadership, sales and entrepreneurial experience to Cynet. In his role, Darmon will lead Cynet’s go-to-market strategy and spearhead strategic initiatives to expand the company’s global footprint and drive growth across its global markets, focusing on North America, EMEA and APAC.
“Bruno is a brilliant security professional with a deep understanding of our industry and proven track record of helping organizations evolve and grow,” said Eyal Gruner, founder and CEO of Cynet. “Bruno’s experience has been in creating, developing and leading sales teams across EMEA and APAC, which will be invaluable as Cynet scales in these markets. We are thrilled to welcome him to the Cynet team.”
Prior to joining Cynet, Darmon served from 2004 to 2021 as Vice President of EMEA Sales at Check Point Software Technologies, after a long career with the company since he joined in 1999.

Building on his entrepreneurial foresight and ingenuity, having invented the industry-transforming concept of Value-Added Reselling while at Diva Microsystems, Darmon was the driver behind the company’s expansion into global markets. Darmon will bring his multifaceted skill set to the growing team at Cynet, breaking new grounds for the company as it readies itself for further expansion.
