SAN FRANCISCO, July 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Kong Inc., the top cloud connectivity firm, today announced that Xinja Bank, Australia’s completely digital neobank, has deployed Kong Enterprise to power its contemporary, microservices-driven mobile banking system. Together with Kong’s support connectivity system, Xinja can more efficiently connect, secure and manage all its APIs and solutions, while ensuring architectural flexibility and scalability as the business continues to innovate and develop. Kong makes it feasible for Xinja to swiftly deploy innovative new services and products which are accessible from any apparatus, real time and supply the responsiveness clients are demanding now.
As a 100-percentage electronic bank made for cellular, Xinja is bringing a new type of bank to clients and revolutionizing the whole banking experience. This includes not only providing conventional banking products but also integrating along with other precious goods via open APIs to provide a fiscal ecosystem to their clients. The launching of Xinja’s lending system, now being constructed, will observe the initial introduction of Kong to Xinja’s infrastructure. “Our financing origination partner wanted us to expose our APIs in a means which was protected and compliant with OIDC criteria,” said Rohan Sharp, co-founder and mind of structure in Xinja Bank. “This was simple with Kong; not only can we comply with industry norms, but we can secure our APIs and inner landscape fast and with reduced threat – while minimizing impacts on Xinja’s existing infrastructure.”
Kong Enterprise, combined with Kong’s extensive plugins hub, enables Xinja to open up its APIs in an efficient, rapid and scalable way that exposes the services as well as allows the team to structure and secure the APIs. The platform’s Developer Portal provides the company with an easy and flexible way to present a public-facing portal to the outside developer community who access its APIs. This will be crucial to Xinja’s business as the industry moves towards open banking and more third-party developers start to engage with the application.
Beyond using Kong to more efficiently collaborate with third-party developers, manage all external-facing API traffic and help handle continued traffic growth, Xinja also leverages Kuma’s universal service mesh with the Kong platform. The Kuma integration allows the team to easily implement a service mesh to apply consistent policies and access controls across its internal microservice landscape, which works seamlessly with both the external- and internal-facing API gateways.”Because Xinja’s technology is built on microservices using containerized and serverless deployments, Kong’s cloud native and Kubernetes-native platform aligns much better than its competitors with our technology architecture,” said Sharp. “It sits well in our technology stack as a containerized service deployable in our environment, making it easy to manage and deploy, just like any of our other services on Xinja’s platform. Most importantly, Kong enables us to innovate at the highest level and bring modern banking to Australia.” Built on Kong’s core open source technology, Kong Enterprise is an end-to-end service connectivity platform that enables organizations to effectively secure, connect and orchestrate their APIs and services. Designed for the modern era of software development including microservices, service mesh, serverless and other emerging architectures, Kong’s platform acts as the nervous system of the cloud – intelligently connecting all of a company’s APIs and microservices natively within and across clouds, Kubernetes, data centers and more.
