“We are proud to have Neil joining Karamba Security’s board to bring his strong financial and automotive and mobility industry background to our organization,” said Ami Dotan, Karamba Security’s co-founder and CEO. “He has tremendous industry, financial and business experience from his years at Ford and will provide direction around how to continue translating the robust customer traction that Karamba Security has been experiencing, into long-term, mass production agreements.”
“What attracted me to Karamba Security is the significant progress that the company has been gaining from multiple OEMs and Tier-1 system providers,” Schloss said. “Rarely do you find a software company that succeeds in creating direct engagements with many of the OEMs and Tier-1’s simultaneously and in such a short time. I was impressed by the company’s technology of end-to-end prevention of cyberattacks inside vehicles, and I see how such traction can translate quickly into scalable production agreements. Karamba’s seasoned and experienced leadership team and working together spirit were significant factors in my decision to join the company’s board. My industry experience and insight should allow me to add immediate value and will help Karamba capture market leadership.”
