It takes strong technology and partners to modernize a long-standing digital banking platform to the cloud. CREALOGIX and Solo.io partner up to enable banking customers to benefit from secure online banking solutions delivered on modern and cloud-native, Kubernetes-based technologies.
CREALOGIX, the leading digital banking software provider, and Solo.io, the modern API infrastructure company and 2019 Gartner Cool Vendor, join forces to modernize digital and mobile banking services to cloud-native architecture. Moving into an open-banking world requires additional measures in securing API-access to a bank’s valuable data and services. As banks aim to expand their partner ecosystem and integrate new solutions, the CREALOGIX team ensured the new platform did that in a secure and reliable way by integrating market leading Kubernetes-based solutions designed for rapid innovation and cloud scale on agile infrastructure.
At the core of the solution is Kubernetes and the vision to build modularity into the platform to build a library of solutions and deliver them individually to customers as needed. The initial solutions include functions like advisory and payment processes. CREALOGIX needed a gateway to enable this modularity and simplify external access to the solutions APIs while protecting the bank’s assets.
Gloo Enterprise, the API gateway by Solo.io was selected and integrated into the banking solutions platform to enable the modularity in managing the APIs and to secure API access. Gloo is a modern API gateway built with Envoy Proxy and is Kubernetes-native in design and architecture to seamlessly integrate into a Kubernetes environment for security and performance at scale.
The CREALOGIX evaluation process included investigation into several market-leading gateway products complete with several proofs of concept to validate the technology.
Gloo’s functionality not only fulfilled the existing requirements but also impressed the team with its overall vision. The partnership between CREALOGIX and Solo.io started during the extended validation phase as they worked together to add financial industry specific functionality to Gloo. With the close collaboration between the CREALOGIX and Solo.io teams firmly established, the development and support organizations were ready to deliver the new secure, Kubernetes-based online and mobile banking platform to customers.
“Our partnership with Solo.io is outstanding: we want to transform digital banking into a new level of open, innovative and engaging banking platforms,” says Daria Mühlethaler, Head of API Ecosystem at CREALOGIX.
“Working with CREALOGIX has been a wonderful collaboration to innovate together on Gloo, specifically addressing the unique needs of modern banking, and to help bring cloud-native technology like Kubernetes and Envoy Proxy to financial services,” says Idit Levine, Solo.io CEO and Founder.
