DataVisor provides the most advanced abuse, fraud, and money laundering detection solution designed to uncover unknown attacks. Traditional fraud solutions are in a constant cat-and-mouse game with attackers. Supervised machine learning models, the best fraud approach before DataVisor, quickly become outdated when attackers evolve their attack techniques. DataVisor's patented unsupervised approach finds new attacks without manual intervention. Our customers are among the largest online services in the world, including Yelp, Pinterest, Alibaba Group, and Fortune 500 financial institutions. Learn more about the founding story, the technology, and the future of this rapidly growing, well-funded company.
