Featurespace has hired Dena Hamilton in an effort to improve its anti-fraud capabilities. Hamilton is signing on as the company’s new Fraud and Financial Crime market expert, and arrives with more than 20 years of experience in the field of financial crime prevention.
Hamilton has particular expertise in software product development, which will likely prove to be invaluable as Featurespace works to improve its flagship behavioral biometrics platform. Before making the switch to Featurespace, Hamilton helped develop fraud detection software for NCR Corp, BAE Systems, and ACI Worldwide.
“Outpacing fraud and financial crime requires pairing the best technology with the brightest minds,” said Featurespace Founder and CTO Dave Excell. “[Dena] brings valuable insight to the ongoing strategic development of our solution, making her a crucial asset to our team as we tackle AML around the world.”
“I am excited to join the Featurespace team during this time of rapid growth and expansion in the North American market,” added Hamilton. “As the industry continues embracing machine learning to identify fraud and financial crime, Featurespace is best positioned to tackle the challenges of today and those that lie ahead.”
Featurespace recently launched the Adaptive Behavioral Biometrics platform, which analyzes user behavior to identify and stop fraudulent transactions in real time. The solution has already been deployed by HSBC and the Círculo de Crédito credit bureau in Mexico.
