About Us

The Fortiro Story

The Protect platform was originally created in 2019 within PwC Australia, and was known as “PwC Protect”. Protect was inspired by experience solving client problems around document fraud and automation. A combination of passionate individuals in technology, fraud, forensics and artificial intelligence created Protect within PwC.

Over time the platform evolved and grew into the Enterprise-ready solution that it is today, acquiring clients of all sizes across Financial Services and Government. In late 2021, it was recognised that for Protect to continue to scale, it needed to be outside of PwC, and Protect was spun-out from PwC into its own separate entity, Fortiro.

Fortiro is a FinTech business backed by OIF Ventures, a leading Australian venture capital firm investing in innovative high-growth technology companies. The PwC team who worked on Protect moved to Fortiro to keep looking after the platform and continue to help it grow as did all Protect customers at the time.

Armed with new capital and our experienced team, we aim to become the world’s industry utility for document authentication and automation.
