We have proudly pioneered the field of passive behavioral biometrics and are tirelessly evolving to keep our clients away from growing online risks.

In 2017, Mastercard acquired NuData to integrate our intelligence into their robust suite of fraud management and security solutions in their drive to protect and innovate the digital space.
