Asia Pacific Regional Winner of the UBS Future of Finance Challenge – Dathena

At the first regional final in Hong Kong on 28 September, the judges chose Dathena as the winner. Dathena's data governance solution uses artificial intelligence to identify and classify all documents across an organization's system.

EMEA London Regional Winner of the UBS Future of Finance Challenge – Secure Cloudlink

Americas Regional Winner of the UBS Future of Finance Challenge – Authomate

In New York, our judges chose Authomate as the winner. Authomate's Strong Pass technology shifts the burden of authentication from a human’s memory to their smartphone, allowing enterprises to implement strong security policies that can be easily adopted by humans.
