Experian: High Security with API Management

Experian: Data Security with API Management

We spoke with Experian vice president of strategy Alpa Jain about how an API platform helps it maintain high security for its consumer data and accelerate time to market by masking the complexity of its IT systems.
 
“API management … takes away all the heavy lifting, from an IT perspective behind the scenes," Jain said "So we’re no longer worried about having a complex environment, having disparate repositories, or siloed processes. We can now focus on what’s most relevant for our consumers.”
 
The company is focused on building high-quality APIs and using analytics to fine tune those APIs, Jain added.
 
Experian is a leading provider of credit reports and scores, and it helps enterprises with credit risk management, fraud prevention, target marketing offers, and decision-making automation.
