Our Story

GABRIEL was born out of two mass shootings that occurred in 2016.   On June 12, 2016, 4 people were killed and 7 people injured in a mass shooting in Tel Aviv.  Four days later, 49 people were killed and 53 injured in a mass shooting at the Pulse Nightclub in Florida


Our founder, Yoni Sherizen, had just left the market in Tel Aviv where the shooting occurred after meeting with one of his students.   The student drove right into the attack due to the chaos and lack of communication with legacy technology


Yoni knew that next generation technology was available that could be deployed to solve this problem.  He believed that creating a great team using this technology could build solutions that save lives in a growing range of public safety threats.


Our team includes leading figures from corporate security, police, military, intelligence, and technology.  This real world experience is critical in creating and developing features and functionality that is needed, effective, and easy to use.


By using AI and machine learning, we are disrupting the security industry by replacing legacy security systems dependent on human interaction with automated systems that reduce response time, chaos, and cost.

The Vision



Yes, a very bold vision.  However, we believe that technology is growing exponentially and can be applied to the problem of increased mass shootings year after year as well as increased workplace violence and other public safety events.


Using this technology, Gabriel continues to innovate to include preventative capabilities to the platform.  With our team of leading technologists, we have already begun integrating with cutting edge technologies such as weapons detection, security drones, robotics, and smart cameras


In the future, we see a security platform that can anticipate a mass causality events based on human behavior, identify mass casualty threats prior to the first action taken, and automate alerting to inform potential victims before any harm is done.
