Mountain View, Calif. — June 02, 2020 — DataVisor, the leading fraud detection company with solutions powered by transformational AI technology, today announced that it has been recognized by Gartner in its Cool Vendors in Identity and Access Management and Fraud Detection report.

“We’re honored to be recognized by Gartner as a Cool Vendor,” said Yinglian Xie, CEO, DataVisor. “In our opinion, Gartner’s insights in this report are instrumental in helping organizations understand and adopt the most advanced fraud detection and prevention solutions and strategies. We at DataVisor believe our recognition in this report underscores our innovative contributions to the industry and reinforces our mission to leverage unsupervised machine learning techniques for continuous, effective fraud protection across the account lifecycle.”

Unsupervised Machine Learning Helps DataVisor Stand Out

As consumers turn to online banking in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, financial platforms and online marketplaces have been hit hard by increased fraud rates. According to recent DataVisor research, account takeover attempts have increased by 20% and new account fraud increased by 40% since the beginning of March. Advanced fraud detection solutions that leverage unsupervised machine learning (UML) help to identify potentially fraudulent behavior by spotting unusual patterns in the data. These solutions can uncover relationships between input data and detect known and unknown threats in real time, to stop an attack before it wreaks havoc on customer accounts.
