Protecting your money
BillGuard, a personal finance security startup recognized by O’Reilly Media as the “2011 Big-Data Startup of the Year”, has developed a groundbreaking new approach to identifying unwanted and unauthorized charges on consumer credit card bills.

With BillGuard, if a charge on your bill is flagged or complained about by anyone else, you also get an alert. This crowdsourcing methodology is similar to that of anti-spam services for email and has yielded great results.
