Core solution/problems the company solves
Featurespace invented and introduced two technologies to the market: 'Adaptive Behavioral Analytics' and 'Automated Deep Behavioral Networks' – both of which are available through the ARIC Risk Hub. The ARIC Risk Hub is a scalable, best-in-class enterprise financial crime prevention software. Our technology is unique because it focuses on understanding good behaviour and then detecting anomalies (vs exclusively trying to identify fraudulent behaviour).
