Orion Hindawi (born 1980) is an American software entrepreneur and billionaire.
In 2007, along with his father, he founded the cybersecurity firm, Tanium. In September 2015, they raised $120 million in new funding that valued Tanium at $3.5 billion, making each of them a billionaire. Tanium uses a novel approach to cybersecurity different from its main competitors Symantec and Intel’s McAfee which have a central data center that communicates directly with individual computers (and requiring a massive investment in data centers), Tanium instead uses a linear chain system where each computer on a network talks to the computer adjacent to it, pooling data, and then relaying the information in a chain before sending it back to a single server. In February 2016, Orion took over as CEO from his father.
Hindawi is married and has one child.
