The Top 25 Technology Disrupters Of 2021
Here are the men and women who are pushing boundaries and turning the IT market on its ear.
1. Tomer Weingarten
Weingarten burst onto the scene with the biggest cybersecurity IPO of all time, leading SentinelOne to $1.2 billion of funding on a record-breaking $10 billion valuation. He has driven monster growth at the endpoint security upstart, with sales jumping to $93.1 million in the fiscal year ended Jan. 31, 2021, up over 100 percent from $46.5 million in fiscal 2020.
And when it comes to the channel, Weingarten puts solution providers front and center, with partners accounting for 96 percent of revenue in the most recent fiscal year, up from 92 percent the year prior. He’s also led the charge as SentinelOne pushes its channel enablement capabilities beyond managed services and into managed detection and response and incident response.
Under his leadership, SentinelOne stands out in the next-gen security pack with true multitenancy for MSPs and an API-driven architecture for MDR partners, allowing them to build custom workflows around its technology.
