In the search for security vulnerabilities, behavioral analytics software provider Pasabi has seen a sharp rise in interest in its AI analytics platform for online fraud detection, with a number of key wins including the online reviews platform, Trustpilot. Pasabi maintains its AI models based on anonymised sets of data collected from multiple sources.

Using bespoke models and algorithms, as well as some open source and commercial technology such as TensorFlow and Neo4j, Pasabi’s platform is proving itself to be advantageous in the detection of patterns in both text and visual data. Customer data is provided to Pasabi by its customers for the purposes of analysis to identify a range of illegal activities — - illegal content, scams, and counterfeits, for example — - upon which the customer can then act.
