Capital One Acquires ATO Alert Company Confyrm

Capital One, one the largest card issuers in the United States, has acquired Confyrm, a technology startup focused on reducing account takeover by use of shared signals across different types of partners. For example, when a user account resets their password at a financial institution, the FI is warned that the email address associated with their account recently had a password change as well.

Confyrm was co-founded by three individuals in 2013, including CEO Andrew Nash who was previously Director of Identity Services at Google, Senior Director of Consumer Identity at PayPal and Director of Technologies at RSA.
