Who We Are
Facteus unlocks the power and value of sensitive data. Through its innovative synthetic data technology and data enrichment services, Facteus safely transforms and enhances raw financial transaction data from legacy technologies into actionable information, which can be used for machine learning, artificial intelligence, investing, industry or company analysis, marketing and other strategic use cases, all without compromising data privacy. The company’s data products have been gathered directly from financial institutions, payment companies, fintechs, and debit card programs, giving business and investment executives access to the “truth” of actual consumer financial transactions, not just general trends.
Facteus literally means “comprised of facts,” and we provide trustworthy information and offer authoritative data insights to help our clients make often complicated investment and business decisions.
We use the latest privacy enhancing techniques, data science, cloud, machine learning, and applied mathematical technologies to improve our products and stay ahead of the curve.
PRIVACY AND COMPLIANCE
Strict data privacy practices and protocols ensure that client data—and their customers—are always completely safe. We are PCI-compliant, and our synthetic data process has been certified to comply with banking and data privacy regulations like GLBA, CCPA, GDPR and others on the horizon.
DELIVER ACTIONABLE INSIGHTS
By adding valuable date enrichment and enhancements, we transform client data into a safe, monetized, actionable product for the data consumer market.
We envision a world where data is accessible and privacy is protected.
