Brighterion Wins 2021 Fortress Cyber Security Award

San Francisco, June 15, 2021

The Business Intelligence Group today announced that Brighterion has won the 2021 Fortress Cyber Security Awards in the threat detection category. The industry awards program sought to identify and reward the world’s leading companies and products that are working to keep data and electronic assets safe among a growing threat from hackers.

Brighterion’s strategic portfolio of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies help leading organizations manage credit risk and predict delinquency, prevent payments and acquirer fraud, detect healthcare fraud, waste and abuse and more.

“Having third-party validation of our fraud detection technology and its leadership position is definitely motivating,” said Sudhir Jha, head of Brighterion. “We remain committed to innovating with AI and delivering our customers highly scalable and easily deployable solutions.”

This award win follows recent global market growth for Brighterion. The Mastercard company recently announced Brazilian insurance group, Porto Seguro, selected Brighterion to build high-performance AI-models that enable the firm to manage credit risk earlier in their customer lifecycle.

“We are so proud to name Brighterion as a winner in the 2021 Fortress Cyber Security Awards program,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “As our society continues to evolve and become more reliant on networks and data, companies like Brighterion are critical at providing the protection and trust consumers demand.”
