Shmulik joined IBM through the Trusteer acquisition, where he was one of the founders. He currently leads the Security Innovation team, a role he started in the Trusteer days.

Shmulik has an entrepreneurial background, both as a founding member and an early joiner of a few startups. His current interests are the security of the IoT space and Blockchain, but he gets a kick out of any juicy technical challenge. Shmulik is a functional languages fan, an emacs devotee, a marathoner, a radio DJ and a music lover.
