NuData Security, a Mastercard company Wins CyberSecurity Breakthrough Award

Los Angeles, September 30, 2021 – CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market, today announced that NuData Security, a Mastercard and online user verification company, has been selected as the winner of the “User Behavior Analytics Security Solution Provider of the Year” award in the fifth annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program.

NuData monitors billions of devices, processes nearly two billion events monthly, and mitigates threats with over 99% accuracy. The NuData flagship solution, NuDetect, helps companies trust users based on how they behave, without adding friction. The solution looks at things such as how a user types, moves the mouse, or holds the device, among several other data points. Clients can deploy the technology at any placement end-users interact with, such as opening an account, resetting a password or logging in, checking rewards, reviewing a booking, or sending a money transfer.

DevOps Experience

NuData solutions have specific machine learning models for each of the multiple use cases it addresses. By looking at how a user behaves, the technology can adjust to new and growing threats such as human farming, remotely accessing an end-user’s computer.
This breakthrough approach allows companies to prevent attacks and mitigate threats that bypass bot detection tools.

“Our breakthrough technology empowers clients to verify users based on their behavior. If there is a threat – it doesn’t matter if the credentials are correct, if the device information is the same, or the IP is a trusted one – by evaluating the behavior you can see there’s something off,” said Michelle Hafner, SVP of Product Strategy & Execution at NuData. “This award reaffirms our mission in providing secure environments without compromising user experiences. I consider it a strong testament to our momentum and the hard work we’ve done with our clients and partners.”

The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories….
