Trustgrid, a pioneer and leader in connecting centralized applications to distributed data sets, announced that Apiture, a leading digital banking provider, chose Trustgrid’s connectivity platform to deploy hundreds of hybrid cloud network connections. With this partnership, Apiture successfully completed the migration of its bank and credit union customers to Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Wilmington, N.C.-based Apiture serves hundreds of banks and credit unions across the U.S., empowering financial institutions of all sizes to meet customer demands by providing extensive features across more platforms. Apiture’s API-focused digital banking platform is redefining digital experiences across the financial industry.
Apiture sought to move its hundreds of bank and credit union customers to a new AWS-hosted platform within just one year’s time, requiring a solution to quickly and efficiently improve upon existing networking processes.
After thorough security and compliance vetting, Apiture selected Trustgrid to combat the connectivity challenges of cloud migration, including replacing the rapidly aging and nearly end-of-life network devices used for the hundreds of VPN connections to their customers’ data centers around the world. As a cloud-first networking solution, Trustgrid provided Apiture with the high availability and security necessary to maintain connections to each customer’s core banking data. Trustgrid’s connectivity platform is simple to deploy across a variety of cloud and on-premise environments without on-site network expertise, making it the ideal solution for Apiture’s customer and time considerations.
“A cloud migration of this magnitude was a significant project for us, and we needed a solutions provider that was understanding of this challenge and would allow for our network to be managed like another cloud service,” said Brad Wisdom, SVP of Engineering at Apiture. “Between its ease of deployment, centralization of configuration and turnkey services, the Trustgrid team made a difficult and daunting job much easier. From planning through implementation, they were an excellent partner that delivered within our aggressive timelines.”
With Trustgrid, Apiture successfully deployed hundreds of hybrid cloud networking connections to its customers in less than six months and cut new customer deployment times from months to weeks. Apiture now saves several hundred thousand dollars annually compared to legacy networking solutions and benefits from automated compliance and security tasks, such as patching, that often require large teams and around-the-clock work.
“Apiture is rethinking digital banking as we know it, giving its customers tools to no longer rely on legacy technology and take control over their digital experience,” said Mark Stavrou, CEO of Trustgrid. “We are excited to play a role in Apiture’s mission to offer a best-in-class client experience while helping to support their continued growth.”
