Jason Wright joins Hakimo to lead its sales team
Menlo Park, Calif., February 8, 2022 — Hakimo, a venture-backed company dedicated to modernizing physical security through its AI software which holistically manages enterprise physical security operations, has ramped up its go-to-market efforts with the addition of Jason Wright as the new director of sales.
The addition of Wright in this critical role will help Hakimo continue to build its sales team and expand the market reach for its AI software. Wright comes to Hakimo from Openpath Security, where he was part of the sales team during the company’s startup phase until its recent sale to Motorola for more than $300 million.
Wright, who has more than 18,000 LinkedIn connections, is also a well-known influencer in the security industry. His LinkedIn posts on security installations are not only highly popular in the industry but also drives the industry to have better quality installations. He brings to Hakimo expertise in networking and numerous connections with security systems integrators and end users, including in the Fortune 1000, technology, biotech, finance and manufacturing industries.
“I’m excited to be working with Hakimo and to help bring to market an AI software solution that helps to solve complex problems faced by GSOCs, such as risk-ranked triage of events, false alarms, operator fatigue, and tailgating detection,” said Wright. “Hakimo has the unique ability to solve problems in the security industry that many other solutions haven’t been able to tackle.”
Hakimo’s AI software operates much like an AI Assistant for monitoring teams. In addition to eliminating false alarms and operator fatigue, its data-rich analytic algorithms analyze alarms across time and diagnose faulty hardware, such as door sensors, and can identify anomalous cardholder behavior. Hakimo also provides a holistic solution to tailgating, which is a common problem in every enterprise. In addition to having the best false-positive rate in the industry, Hakimo’s hardware-free tailgating solution also provides tools to change employee behavior, which is the root-cause behind tailgating. Hakimo has full API-based integrations with numerous enterprise access control and video management platforms to provide a seamless experience to security teams. .
“Hakimo is at an important stage in our growth trajectory,” said Samuel Joseph, co-founder and chief executive officer of Hakimo. “Jason provides an essential piece to the puzzle as we build our network of trusted integrator and end user partners.”
