The Early Stage Podcast
About This Show
The Early Stage Podcast is devoted to interviewing top entrepreneurs at the Seed and Series A stages of their startups. This project is a deep dive into the initial challenges and breakthroughs driven innovators endure as they build their MVP, launch, raise funding, grow their teams, and find product-market fit.
Early Stage is hosted by John Valentine, Manager of Technology Identification and Communications at Thales, a worldwide leader in aerospace, space, defense, transportation, and security. A two-time Founder and early employee at venture-backed mobile payments startup LevelUp, John has deep experience launching new products, building systems, and scaling. In his current role, John embraces the opportunity to support hundreds of high-growth startups each year in much the same way as the innovation ecosystem helped him.

Ep. 32 - CYBRIC: Because Security Should Never Be a Barrier to Innovation
Today's guest, Ernesto DiGiambattista, Founder and CEO of CYBRIC, is helping define a new industry term: DevSecOps. How do you bring the security process into development without slowing it down?
CYBRIC's answer is a security orchestration platform that helps developers, DevOps, and security teams apply commercial security testing tools all throughout the software development lifecycle. Their platform automatically scans each line of code as it's entered, each build as it's completed, and each push to production -- without any layer of friction.
If you're a cybersecurity novice like myself, don't worry, I made sure Ernesto explained some of the tougher concepts a couple times. Oh, and if you like pasta, you'll like our little culinary digression. Enjoy today's conversation with Ernesto.
