San Jose, CA (PRWEB) September 29, 2014
ThreatMetrix®, the fastest-growing provider of context-based security and advanced fraud prevention solutions, was presented with a Gold Stevie® Award in New Product or Service of the Year – Security Solution category and a Silver Award in the Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year – Computer Software category in the 12th Annual American Business Awards.
The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the trophies were presented to winners during a recent gala banquet at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. More than 250 nominees and their guests attended for the presentation of new product awards, website awards, app awards, and more.
More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others.
“Recognition by the American Business Awards serves as validation of our continued innovation in the context-based security and advanced fraud prevention space,” said Bert Rankin, chief marketing officer, ThreatMetrix. “Given the sophistication of today’s cybercriminals, it’s pertinent to collaborate across business boundaries and fight fraud using an anonymized global network, such as the ThreatMetrix® Global Trust Intelligence Network.”
The Network – the largest trusted identity network of shared intelligence – analyzes more than 210 million active user accounts and processes more than 850 million login, payment and wire transactions each month. When a new activity is submitted, ThreatMetrix captures and analyzes the activity for fraud in real time – effectively differentiating between authentic and fraudulent transactions using anonymized information.
Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 240 executives nationwide who participated in the judging process.
“We’re delighted to recognize so many innovative companies, new products, technical achievements, and technology executives this year,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “We congratulate all of the Stevie Award winners, and thank them for the inspiration their achievements have stimulated.”
