The company has developed “innovative tech to prevent threats that previously had no automated solution.”
ActiveFence, an Israeli Trust & Safety tech platform designed to mitigate and prevent online harm, has won the “Best AI-based Solution for CyberSecurity” as part of the fifth annual AI Breakthrough Awards. The award recognizes the company’s innovative use of AI capabilities to help online platforms proactively detect and prevent online threats.
The company uses a combination of AI technology and leading subject matter experts to provide Trust & Safety teams with precise, real-time data, in-depth intelligence, and automated tools to protect users and ensure safe online experiences.
The solution provides detection of a broad range of malicious activity and harmful content, including terror, fraud, hate speech, child sexual abuse material (CSAM), disinformation, and more, across multiple formats (imagery, video, audio, and text).
According to the company, it developed a unique ability to integrate its technology with different online platforms – enabling companies of all sizes to engage. Once integrated, ActiveFence’s proactive content detection provides near real-time analysis for a variety of violations. The platform provides cultural context and analysis in over 70 languages..
“AI has an essential and leading role to play in keeping everyone safe online. ActiveFence leverages AI and deep industry expertise to help online platforms tackle these threats at the root, even before they reach the end user,” said Iftach Orr, CTO & Co-Founder of ActiveFence.
“Our technology was designed with Trust & Safety teams in mind. By allowing ActiveFence's AI to bear the burden that was traditionally left to human moderators, companies are able to improve moderator health and wellness, while efficiently scaling their Trust & Safety operations.”
“Combining AI and human expert analysis is a unique and necessary technique that could help solve many challenging issues such as targeted disinformation campaigns and hate speech,” said James Johnson, Managing Director at AI Breakthrough.
“ActiveFence has developed an innovative, AI-based technology to prevent threats that previously had no automated solution – and in a variety of languages seldom covered by traditional content moderation.”
Backed by leading Silicon Valley investors such as CRV and Norwest, ActiveFence has raised $100M to date. It employs over 300 people worldwide.
The mission of the AI Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work, and success in a range of AI and machine learning related categories, including AI platforms, Deep Learning, Smart Robotics, Business Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, industry-specific AI applications, and many more.
