The Darwinium Story

Vision

Darwinium was born out of a belief that there was a better way to protect digital businesses - and the customers they serve - from the harmful effects of fraud and abuse. Despite years of advances in fraud controls, adversaries still have the upper hand, adapting quicker, executing better and arming networks with the latest AI tooling to increase success.

Darwinium was architected to de deployed simply, putting all the tools needed to analyse, decision and act on user behavior in the hands of business users, fraud analysts and data scientists. The platform removes the heavy lifting required from IT and engineering teams so that businesses are empowered to act on intelligence in real time.

Values

We have a collective passion for social equitability and are living out our vision to make the digital world safe, fair and accessible to everyone in society. We are focused on protecting all users - particularly new-to-digital and vulnerable customers - from the risk of fraud, scams and online abuse.

Our core values as a team are to be hungry, hard-working and humble, knowing that the best ideas come from a collective passion and vision to instigate change.

Unlike Charles Darwin’s legacy, Darwinium’s motto is ‘Survival of the Unfittest’; protecting those least able to protect themselves and ensuring everyone has access to a safe, accessible online world.

Darwinium is a Next-Generation Digital Security and Fraud Prevention Platform

The Darwinium platform unites complete visibility of user behavior, everywhere, with the ability to make better risk decisions - and take action on evolving threats - in real time. Using Darwinium’s platform, businesses can make more accurate, real-time decisions, and take dynamic, tailored remediation that favors the customer and not the fraudster.

Darwinium is headquartered in San Francisco, with offices in Sydney and London. Prior to building Darwinium, the founding team, led by Alisdair Faulkner, co-founded, built and scaled ThreatMetrix, the world’s leading Digital Identity company. Alisdair created the Digital Identity category, grew recurring revenues from $0-100M USD, resulting in a billion dollar acquisition by a FTSE 100 company.

The Darwinium team has a combined experience of over 200 years managing fraud and risk for some of the world's largest banks, ecommerce platforms and fintech providers. It comprises industry-leading engineers, product innovators and go-to-market specialists, bringing a passion, enthusiasm and drive to change the world of fraud and risk.
