Peddy will lead ABBYY’s infosec initiatives to ensure the company continues to maintain the highest standards of data protection, regulatory compliance, and innovation for its customers.

Headquartered in Milpitas, California, ABBYY puts information to work with purpose-built AI. To this end, ABBYY offers a wide range of intelligent process automation solutions, including Process Intelligence, Accounts Payable automation and ABBYY Vantage, its Intelligent Document Processing (IDP) platform.
