Recent appointments by AnyVision include a new CEO last October.

“Make no mistake. With our cutting-edge vision AI platform, and this powerful lineup of leaders, AnyVision is positioning itself for market dominance,” says AnyVision CEO Avi Golan. “Dean is a seasoned marketing leader who has successfully executed end-to-end marketing strategies and has a track record of driving brand and market share growth. I have no doubt that he is the hands-on leader we need to help accelerate AnyVision’s position in our markets around the world.”

“I am very excited to join the Secret Double Octopus team and help companies go passwordless across their entire organization. As the attack surface within organizations continues to expand, and bad actors become increasingly sophisticated, going passwordless can greatly reduce cybersecurity risk in organizations,” responds Laubenstein.
