DataWalk Receives Ally Financial’s 2023 Technology Disruptor Award

March 23, 2023

DataWalk is proud to announce today that the company has been given the Technology Disruptor award by Ally Financial, the nation’s largest digital-only bank and leading auto finance company.

During the first-ever Ally Technology Partner Awards, Ally highlighted five third-party suppliers that delivered outstanding service excellence across a broad array of criteria while aligning to Ally’s core values and performance standards. Companies were recognized among four key categories, focusing on operational excellence, security and data privacy, speed to market and disruptive innovation, with one supplier being named technology partner of the year.

DataWalk has been recognized as the winner in the Technology Disruptor category for its anti-fraud and AML analytics software. DataWalk software enables Ally to reduce exposure to financial crimes by finding suspicious connections, patterns, and networks across vast amounts of siloed data.

“We are thrilled that an innovative industry leader like Ally has recognized DataWalk as a Technology Disruptor,” said Gabe Gotthard, CEO, DataWalk Inc. “We are proud that the Ally teams fighting fraud and money laundering have achieved exceptional results with DataWalk’s unique technology.”

To be considered for the awards, a company must be an Ally technology supplier for at least one year.  Winners were selected by Ally committees that evaluated and voted on supplier self-nominations.

“We launched our first annual Ally Technology Partner awards to recognize the critical vendor partners that contribute to our success, and we are blown away by the overwhelming interest,” said Sathish Muthukrishnan, Chief Information, Data & Digital Officer at Ally. “Each winner showcases the importance and value of superior execution, quality and partnership. We are thrilled to honor them through this awards program.”
