Fidel is a company founded in 2013 by Dev Subrata, Andrei Popescu, and Subrata Dev. It is a global fintech company headquartered in London, United Kingdom. The company has a mission to simplify how businesses access and use financial data through APIs.

Since its inception, Fidel has evolved as a company by expanding its product offerings and partnering with major players in the financial industry. In 2016, the company launched its platform for developers to easily build card-linked applications. In 2017, it formed a partnership with Visa, which allowed its customers to easily connect to the Visa network through its APIs. In 2020, Fidel announced a partnership with the payments giant, Mastercard, to expand its reach and access to more data sources.

Fidel’s corporate structure is divided into different departments, including Product, Engineering, Sales, and Marketing. The company has a team of experienced professionals who work collaboratively to provide quality services to its customers.

Fidel has a robust technical infrastructure that ensures its APIs are reliable, scalable, and secure. The company uses a combination of technologies, including Kubernetes, Docker, and Amazon Web Services, to power its infrastructure.

Security is a top priority for Fidel, and the company has implemented strict security protocols to ensure its customers’ data is protected. It has also achieved compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

While Fidel has not had any major breaches, the company has experienced minor incidents in the past. For instance, in 2020, a third-party vendor exposed some of its customers’ data, but Fidel took swift action to address the issue and ensure its customers were not affected.

Fidel offers a range of APIs that businesses can use to access financial data, including card-linked APIs, bank account APIs, and reward APIs. These APIs are designed to be easy to use and integrate into existing systems. Some of the technical specifications of Fidel’s APIs include:

RESTful API architecture

JSON data format

OAuth 2.0 authentication protocol

SSL encryption for data transmission

Webhooks for real-time updates

Fidel’s APIs are known for their fast and reliable performance. The company has implemented load balancing and caching techniques to ensure its APIs can handle a high volume of requests without downtime.

Fidel has had some significant downtime incidents in the past, such as in 2019 when its platform experienced a temporary outage due to a configuration error. However, the company quickly resolved the issue and took steps to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future.

In terms of future plans, Fidel aims to continue expanding its product offerings and partnerships with major players in the financial industry. The company is also exploring opportunities to expand into new markets and regions to serve more customers globally.
