First American Data & Analytics' CovenantGuard™ Solution Honored as a 2023 Gold American Business Award® Winner
May 4, 2023, Santa Ana, Calif.
First American Data & Analytics, a leading national provider of property-centric information, risk management and advanced analytics and a division of First American Financial Corporation (NYSE: FAF), announced today its CovenantGuard™ solution has won a Gold Stevie® Award at the 21st annual American Business Awards® in the aggregation platform category. This marks the seventh consecutive year that First American Data & Analytics has been recognized by the American Business Awards, bringing its total to 17 awards in that span. More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted to the 2023 American Business Awards for consideration in a wide range of categories.
“The recognition of our CovenantGuard solution reaffirms our leadership in the innovative deployment of AI and OCR technologies to solve customer and societal challenges,” said Robert Karraa, president of First American Data & Analytics. “Not only are we seeking to leverage our proprietary data extraction technology and comprehensive data assets to help address the vestige of discrimination in historical real estate documents, but we are also providing a solution for identifying and redacting unlawful covenants in other legal documents.”
CovenantGuard is a first-of-its-kind workflow solution that uses AI-driven technology to scan for and identify illegal discriminatory restrictive covenants in documents recorded in the United States. In April 2022, California’s Riverside County selected the solution to identify and redact these unlawful covenants in county recorded real estate documents in accordance with California’s AB 1466 legislation. Without CovenantGuard, county officials would have to manually review more than 100 years’ worth of real estate documents to identify records containing illegal discriminatory restrictive covenants.
