AU10TIX Appoints Tech Industry Veteran Dan Yerushalmi as CEO 

AU10TIX has appointed tech and security industry veteran Dan Yerushalmi as its new CEO.

The Israel-based provider of automated identity verification and identity management solutions said in a Tuesday (Jan. 17) press release that Yerushalmi joins AU10TIX from cybersecurity company Checkpoint Software Technologies, where he served as chief client and revenue officer.

Before that, he was a group chief technology officer at Leumi Bank and president and business manager of [Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA)] for Amdocs, according to the press release.

“Dan brings a significant boost to AU10TIX,” AU10TIX Chairman Ron Atzmon said in the release. “His experience and extensive knowledge in strategy, operations and sales make him the right person for the company as we expand activity and increase personnel globally.”

Yerushalmi joins AU10TIX as the company is growing globally, developing new technologies and helping customers combat fraudsters and comply with regulator changes, according to the press release.

PYMNTS research has found that in the healthcare space, for example, arranging a telehealth appointment with a healthcare provider requires entering data into portals, clicking on links and uploading images of various forms of identification.

Thirty-eight percent of individuals are very concerned with how their data is handled. At the same time, 45% of consumers think telehealth gives them the same level of care they would get from in-person visits and 43% of patients intend to continue to use telemedicine, according to the “Future of Identity Report,” a PYMNTS and AU10TIX collaboration.

No matter the ways in which the care is provided — virtually or in person — identity verification and payments rendered at the point of care are critical, the report said.

“In a world where ‘automation’ is actually enhanced by human ‘experts’ most of the time, AU10TIX stands out with its level of full-process automation and the richness of its fraud and risk output detection,” Yerushalmi said in the Tuesday press release. “This wins AU10TIX new clients, creates compelling ROI and is greatly appreciated by regulators. Being a global player with clients on five continents brings massive opportunity for continued growth and inspires me to take AU10TIX to the next level.”
