CHEQ named Technology Pioneer by World Economic Forum

CHEQ was selected by the WEF, the world’s preeminent forum for business, political and economic affairs to its exclusive list of “Technology Pioneers.” The World Economic Forum announced its selection of the 100 leading Technology Pioneers of 2021 – companies that are shaping industries from retail to cybersecurity.

The awards cap continuing recognition for CHEQ’s Customer Acquisition Security, protecting revenue opportunities for the world’s leading brands.

CHEQ has today named Assaf Dar as the company’s new Chief Product Officer.

Dar joins CHEQ after serving as the Chief Product Officer of Israeli cybersecurity unicorn Checkmarx, where he led the company’s product strategy, product management and R&D. Prior to Checkmarx, Assaf served as the Chief Product Officer at Perion’s (NASDAQ: PERI) Codefuel, where he led strategy, product and innovation, after holding senior positions at Conduit and CA Technologies (a Broadcom Company).

The appointment comes on the heels of additional senior management hires at CHEQ, from leading SaaS companies like Sisense and Datorama. Dar will be tasked with leading CHEQ’s product efforts, strategy, and innovation across its enterprise, mid market and SBM suite of solutions.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining CHEQ, one of the most exciting and promising SaaS companies out there today. The application of cybersecurity to digital advertising is fascinating, and the company’s vision of becoming the immune system of digital media is truly compelling,” said Assaf. “CHEQ’s impressive growth in 2020 has attracted highly talented and experienced executives from the world’s leading SaaS companies, a fact which itself inspires great confidence in the future of this company.”

CHEQ Founder and CEO, Guy Tytunovich, added: “I’m delighted to welcome such a well-respected product leader like Assaf to the CHEQ leadership team. He brings with him a wealth of experience in product and R&D strategy, vision, marketing and management, at the highest level of the cybersecurity and SaaS industries – something we stand to benefit from greatly. Assaf’s appointment will allow us to further expand CHEQ’s offerings to new channels while preserving our innovative and technological edge in the market.”

CHEQ’s award-winning ad-fraud and click-fraud prevention solutions span all major advertising channels, from programmatic display and video, to paid search, paid social, CTV and more. In 2020, the company received multiple accolades, including Ad Fraud Solution of the Year (The Drum) and Search Product of the Year (The Drum), and was named a “Gartner Cool Vendor” in the “AI for Marketing” category.

Gartner has named CHEQ to its prestigious “Cool Vendor” list for 2020, under the “AI for Marketing” category

Gartner, the world’s leading business research and advisory company, has named CHEQ to its prestigious “Cool Vendor” list for 2020, under the “AI for Marketing” category. Companies previously named to Gartner’s Cool Vendor list include ZoomMoovitCybereasonSnowflake, Gong, DatoramaWrike and many other leading SaaS unicorns. CHEQ has been recognized for its introduction of cutting-edge cybersecurity to the marketing space, allowing advertisers to secure their campaigns from non-human, inauthentic and invalid traffic.

“This is a fantastic achievement which speaks to the innovative nature of our company” said CHEQ founder and CEO Guy Tytunovich. “We have been building an entirely new category, ‘Ad Security’, while introducing know-how and technology from the cybersecurity space to take the fight against ad-fraud and click fraud to the next level. We’ve been fortunate to experience rapid growth and adoption along with many industry accolades and finishing this year on Gartner’s Cool Vendor list is really the icing on the cake.”

Gartner Analyst Andrew Frank elaborated on CHEQ’s selection: “Most ad verification solutions react to fraud by monitoring traffic and detecting anomalies in digital ad campaigns when they occur. In contrast, CHEQ takes a pre-emptive approach to fraud prevention by using honeypots — that is, sites designed to attract and identify malicious traffic. It blocks scrapers and web-crawlers, botnets, click farms, out-of geography clicks and suspicious human-driven behavior such as competitor clicks and affiliate fraud before they can affect a live campaign. It has also developed advanced bot mitigation technology to reliably distinguish between human and computer-generated activity. Its real-time capabilities can analyze a web event in 120 milliseconds, which is particularly helpful during real-time bidding of ads. It provides analysis of blocked impressions, supplies log level data to remove bots from campaign attribution and uses ML to predict and eliminate future threats.”

CHEQ’s selection caps off a bountiful year for the Ad-Security company which was also named Ad Fraud Solution of the Year (The Drum), Best Search Software of the Year (The Drum) and Best AI Driven Ad Fraud Solution of the Year (Corporate Vision Magazine).
