The second team is building on-premise solutions for business customers, ingesting wide varieties of data for automatic classification of events, as well as providing a presentation layer for manual review/classification. The third team is developing a scalable platform for real-time data processing, analysis and prediction, turning insights and models supplied by our Data Science Team into the production code that forms the backbone of our fraud prevention solutions.
