“We are really excited to receive this award,” said Ofer Tziperman, CEO for Anagog. “This was a result of an unbelievable team work at Anagog over a long time.

Anagog was founded by Gil Levy and Yaron Aizenbud in 2010 and used the first years to develop and perfect the mobility status. The Tel Aviv-based company has filed 12 patents to date and is currently developing a set of additional related advanced technologies and services.
