"We provide the key to accessing valuable data 10 times faster while adhering to increasing privacy constraints."
LAS VEGAS, NV (PRWEB) October 26, 2016
DemystData, a big data technology provider, has raised USD $7 million in Series B funding, led by MissionOG with follow on investment by Notion Capital and Singtel Innov8. This latest round of financing brings the total funding to USD $16 million.
DemystData will use the funds to grow their technology and client services teams while also investing to expand data partnerships to meet booming demand in the U.S. and Asia Pacific markets.
Since its Series A in 2014 DemystData has seen rapid client adoption and now supports growth and risk decisions for some of the world’s largest banks and insurers across 10 countries.
DemystData also announced the release of the Atlantic Platform, the world’s first solution of its type to assess consumer and small business risk on the back of massive streams of data, text, images, and log files, while improving compliance with emerging privacy law, all through a single API.
“DemystData is helping clients cut risk by up to 60% and increase acceptance and straight-through processing rates to convert more customers. We provide the key to accessing valuable data 10 times faster while adhering to increasing privacy constraints,” said DemystData’s Mark Hookey.
In conjunction with the financing, Gene Lockhart, Chairman and Managing Partner of MissionOG, and former CEO of Mastercard International, has joined the board. “MissionOG is investing heavily in the infrastructure layer of FinTech and DemystData provides a market leading platform to access that most essential financial services resource: data. One DemystData client told us it would take them over 10 years to build this capability internally,” according to Lockhart.
“DemystData’s fraud and verification solutions have been particularly successful in the marketplace, with clients increasingly eschewing the more traditional technology solutions providers and preferring to work with best in breed big data technology providers like DemystData,” said Patrick Norris, Principal at Notion Capital.
