Mission, Founding Story and Team
DataVisor’s mission is to build and restore trust in modern-day commerce, serving banks, social networks and mobile applications. Utilizing an unsupervised big data analytics platform, DataVisor identifies hidden fraudsters lurking inside online services before they conduct any damage to your service or your users. DataVisor’s fraud experts partner with the largest Internet properties in the world to protect them from a wide array of online fraud damage, including fraudulent transactions, spam, fake reviews, promotion abuse, fake app installs and more.
DataVisor was founded in 2013, when Yinglian Xie and Fang Yu envisioned a new fraud technology that automatically adapted to attackers without human intervention. Yinglian and Fang met at Microsoft Research, spending more than seven years together developing fraud solutions to protect hundreds of millions of online users. They were driven by curiosity and innovation, values embedded deep in DataVisor’s roots and impacting everything the company does now.
We are fortunate to have attracted and assembled a team of world-class experts in big data, security, analytics, complex algorithms, and infrastructure. We foster a culture of openness, positivity, and collaboration. We are driven, innovative and unafraid to do things that have never been done before.
