Guidance through the API economy

Icon has developed a comprehensive approach to creating and delivering an API programme for banks and financial service institutions.

Whether driven by regulation such as CMA and PSD2, or business innovation, it is vital for banks to design APIs effectively. This translates into not only being PSD2 compliant but also managing and governing APIs that expose business assets externally, while also securing the access pattern. As a proxy to existing business services, an API must be exposed securely over an API Gateway, which manages, authenticates and authorises access to business assets.
