This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

Kount, a highly-successful anti-fraud technology company, has figured it out, serving customers worldwide while enjoying the beauty and lifestyle of Idaho.

Founder and CEO Brad Wiskirchen assembled a world-class team that thoughtfully and strategically created some of the most sophisticated anti-fraud technology anywhere for merchants and payment service providers, like Staples, SurveyMonkey, Intuit, Dominos and Braintree/PayPal. His moral compass around his company is to find the right fit of talent motivated to work in a culture of openness, impeccable honesty and fearlessness of going after fraudsters on behalf of their important clientele.

This law school graduate of Notre Dame could have lived anywhere but Brad wanted to set up shop in his home state and launched Kount in Boise 10 years ago. His impressive company now has 131 employees and operates in 180 countries, with the goal to create the world’s fastest and most effective artificial intelligence/machine-learning driven fraud control solution.

Brad says his team at Kount are morally compelled to stop the bad guys, saving billions of dollars in fraud by responding faster than anyone else, taking milliseconds to intervene. Brad and his team also love supporting the community, for example the Kids Backpack Program, Idaho Food Bank and Habitat for Humanity to name a few.
