"As a loyal 1Password user since 2008, it's a rare opportunity and responsibility to lead product for a company I love and depend upon every day," said Steve Won, chief product officer of 1Password. "I've always been impressed by 1Password's dedication to the customer experience, making secure and easy-to-use products instead of designing just for technical teams. Few companies have 1Password's direct, trusted relationship with millions of customers, and I can't wait to work with this talented team to build on this great foundation."

Steve joins 1Password on the heels of one of the largest cybersecurity funding rounds in history that saw the company triple its valuation to $6.8 billion USD in under six months. Steve most recently built the product team from the ground up at Shogun to develop its initial product roadmap, creating several products to enhance ecommerce web experiences and set the foundation for a customer-first culture. Prior to Shogun, he led authentication products at Duo Security where he supported growing their revenue by 20x and led their passwordless strategy. Duo Security was acquired by Cisco during Steve's tenure.

"We're extremely fortunate to have Steve join our 1Password leadership team. His experience in designing world-class products that deepen security, improve authentication, and are easier to use perfectly aligns with our mission to make human-centric security a reality for everyone," said Jeff Shiner, CEO of 1Password. "His expertise will be invaluable to our product innovation – allowing us to continue building a world-class product team that's shaping the future of authentication and a passwordless world."
