W2 Global Data - Helping Businesses Make Secure Decisions
W2 Global Data provides tools and services that give back a sense of security to organisations. They’re based in Cardiff, and were formed in 2011.
The startup enables businesses to make informed decisions on people and businesses they are thinking of working with via online screening tools. Their products include services such as anti-money laundering and fraud prevention, age and ID verification, negative international media detection and more. They give customers real-time access to reliable information from a large supply of data sources, resulting in suspicious activity being detected early on, which can save both time and costs.
W2 Global Data has raised two rounds of undisclosed funding, with investors including Finance Wales, SimpleWeb, Mercia Fund Management and Thorium Technology Investors.
The funds have been earmarked to expand their team and further develop their security offerings.
