Developed at Cambridge University, Featurespace’s software identifies suspicious online behaviour to stop fraud attacks as they happen. Its platform monitors customer data from clients including Danske Bank, Worldpay and ClearBank, and learns to think in the same way as customers would, therefore allowing it to more accurately detect ever-more sophisticated fraudulent behaviour. With its software used in more than 180 countries, sales hit £10m last year under chief executive Martina King, 58. It has opened a US office in Atlanta and raised £25m from venture capital firms in January to further its international expansion.
