Helping you design securely.

Akeero enables rapid self-serve security to allow developers to ship products faster, with higher quality, resulting in more secure apps and infrastructure.

Company Overview

Akeero is the first automated security design platform designed especially for cloud-native environments. Built by experienced security architects, and integrated with existing Automation and DevOps toolsets, Akeero helps teams to collaboratively build secure apps and networks better, faster – all before a line of code is ever written.

This allows teams to automatically embed security and compliance requirements into their Software Development Lifecycle.

Whether you’re already in the cloud, or you’re planning on migrating there, Akeero will enable you to securely design your cloud native infrastructure.

Founding Team

Ciaran O'Keeffe

Ciaran O’Keeffe

Chief Executive Officer & Co-Founder

Ciaran is a proud Corkonian who is obsessed with all things security. Having spent years leading the security architecture and operations teams for major organisations, he became convinced that there was a more efficient, consistent and highly accurate way to embed security into software development.

You may say he’s a dreamer… but he’s not the only one. Akeero is the realisation of that dream: a solution that automates the security design of the most complex applications and networks. Okay, it’s not the most exciting dream, but it IS a useful one.

Anthi Gilligan

Anthi Gilligan

Chief Information Security Officer & Co-Founder

Anthi likes getting things done right and was the obvious choice as our CISO – a position she aspired towards during her many years slumming it as a penetration tester and appsec engineer.

The only thing she hoards more than certifications is conference swag, she fights over couch space with her three dogs, has an odd quirk about raccoons, and is easily bribed with cake.

Chief Operating Officer & Co-Founder

Stuart is a problem solver and is interested in a wide range of disciplines. A chartered accountant by trade, he cut his teeth in a number of large organisations meeting a lot of great people along the way.

He is a self-confessed coffee snob, loves travelling (especially when there’s a sporting event involved) and having dinner with friends.
