CA Technologies

In an era where software is eating the world, CA technologies helps companies to succeed in their businesses with advanced software technologies. From planning to development to management to security, CA creates software tools that fuels transformation for financial institutions in the current app economy and the next API economy. For the Open Banking market, security, scalability, control and management of APIs are key and CA is a leader in that space thanks to a complete PSD2-ready solution to manage the full API lifecycle to go beyond designing only software systems but designing business ecosystems. With their API academy research team, CA also provides industry leadership by sponsoring the state of Banking APIs Industry report since 2015 and present their vision at main Banking API conferences worldwide. All of this to help banks to design developer and customer experiences that excite, engage communities and create money-making opportunities based on platform strategies.

DataStax

As banks implement new open API strategies to comply with Open Banking regulations, both existing data and new information will have to be stored in a centralised, high-performance database layer. DataStax provides an always-on data platform that easily scales out the data layer horizontally across data centres, cloud regions, or hybrid environments. DataStax Enterprise (DSE) can be used as an always-on, scalable database for the API Layer. DSE provides a platform for storing data and transactions from the API Layer thus reducing the performance impact on legacy systems. To deal with the potential issue of performance and availability, DSE supports full active geo-distribution of data so that service is located close to where it is needed. In the banking sector, DataStax powers critical applications and data services for financial services institutions including Barclays, Capital One, Fidelity, ING, Macquarie, and UBS.

Trusona

Trusona is on a mission to remove passwords. Not only are passwords inherently insecure, they significantly degrade customer experience, impact retention and adoption of digital channels and products and increase back office administration costs.

Open Banking promises to revolutionise the relationship between consumers, banks and merchants, it also mandates increasing security and frequency of customer authentication. This risks adding significant friction to the customer journey, reducing conversion and stalling adoption.

Trusona replaces passwords and other ‘static’ login credentials or challenges with a highly secure two factor, PSD2 compliant, touch on a smartphone. We enable frictionless access to your services in any channel through your mobile app without customers ever needing to remember or type a single letter, digit or character again. We also keep the fraudsters at bay by leveraging sophisticated anti-replay technology.

Join the #NoPasswords revolution. Your customers will love you. And your CEO will too. For more information visit: http://www.trusona.com
