Silicon Valley analytic software firm FICO has been awarded eight new patents related to cybersecurity and advanced analytics. FICO now holds 183 US and foreign patents, and has 83 pending patent applications, including 16 that were filed in 2017.  

Three of the new patents relate to technologies developed for the FICO® Decision Management Suite, FICO’s integrated platform for developing and managing decision-making applications. These include:

Its approach to building a cloud-based platform for providing analytic decision services.

A system for the linearised processing of data objects by a distributed stream computing system.

“We are aggressively innovating to create the world’s first true end-to-end analytically powered decisioning platform,” said Dr. Stuart Wells, FICO’s chief product and technology officer. “The breakthroughs we make here will not only help our customers build smart applications faster, they will help us develop the next generations of solutions for fraud detection, risk management, supply chain optimisation and more.”
