ORLANDO, Fla.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Viewpost, the secure B2B network for electronic invoicing, payments and cash management, has been named an honoree of a 2017 CSO50 Award from IDG’s CSO. This prestigious honor is granted to a select group of organizations that have demonstrated that their security projects and initiatives have created outstanding business value and thought leadership for their companies.
“Security leaders are expected to not only deliver protection, but also to drive business initiatives. Our annual CSO50 awards recognize security projects that enhance defense and also deliver ROI.”
Viewpost is being recognized with this award for a proprietary financial crime risk analysis and detection system called Cagey. The Viewpost security, fraud and financial crimes teams hand-developed software that analyzes customers based on their risk and other exclusive markers and displays the data in a unique method, allowing the teams to more closely monitor the platform. The Cagey system produces financial crime insight mapping and reputational ranking that enables Viewpost analysts and teams to distinguish between good customers and others in an iterative fashion. Key to team success is the software’s collaborative approach and platform that unites several historically siloed disciplines into a cross-functional team that can monitor and take action from a single dashboard.
"I am extremely proud of our team’s ability to conceive, design, develop and implement this very unique Financial Crime analysis engine, monitoring tool, and mind-mapping software in-house,” said Dr. Christopher Pierson, EVP, Chief Security Officer and General Counsel at Viewpost. "With increases in automation and decision intelligence, Regulatory Technology (RegTech) has become an area ripe for disruption especially where technology brings together teams to collaborate on a unified platform. This recognition from CSO is validation that our company’s entrepreneurial DNA, no matter how we apply it, is invaluable to our business.”
“Security and compliance are primary elements of Viewpost's foundation, and our teams continuously strive to over deliver in that regard,” said Max Eliscu, CEO at Viewpost. “Being recognized three consecutive years in a row by a highly respected panel of judges is testament to the rigor our teams bring to B2B transactional efficiency and soundness."
"The stakes have never been higher when it comes to protecting an organization's sensitive data from criminals and breach," said Joan Godchild, editor-in-chief of CSO. "Security leaders are expected to not only deliver protection, but also to drive business initiatives. Our annual CSO50 awards recognize security projects that enhance defense and also deliver ROI."
Viewpost will accept its award at the CSO50 Conference + Awards held May 1–3, 2017, at the Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona. Viewpost also congratulates the other 49 honorees on their 2017 CSO50 Award.
