In 2000, BNP Paribas came into existence after the merger of Banque Nationale de Paris (BNP) and Paribas. It is now a French multinational bank. Established in 1848 as Comptoir National d’Escompte de Paris (CNEP), the bank has deep roots.

BNP Paribas has developed since its formation and is now among the biggest banks worldwide. Offering a diverse set of financial services that comprises retail banking, corporate banking investment baking & wealth management across over seventy nations is one of its core specialties.

Facilitating services like payment processing, account aggregation and risk analysis requires BNP Paribas to utilize a number of third-party APIs. BNP Paribas uses some APIs which are:

  • Banks use Swift for secure messaging and payment processing.
  • BNP Paribas can access customer data from other banks and financial institutions securely, making banking experience more streamlined and integrated.
  • BNP Paribas’ payment processing systems receive real-time risk analysis and fraud detection from FIS.

With the implementation of measures like encryption, two-factor authentication and real-time monitoring,BNP Paribas demonstrates its dedication towards securing customer data. The past has seen some security breaches experienced by the bank. During a 2018 data breach, the personal information for thousands of customers was exposed.

Positive feedback about API performance is generally what BNP Paribas receives from its developers and customers. Nonetheless, occasional reports about slow response times and connection issues have emerged.

In the past, BNP Paribas has faced some downtime issues specifically during the 2019 IT outage that disrupted its online banking services in France. Investing in its infrastructure, the bank has increased reliability and decreased the likelihood of future outages.

With a focus on flexibility and scalability, BNP Paribas’ infrastructure was constructed by making use of both on-premise as well as cloud-based systems. The bank guarantees smooth system operations with a range of monitoring and management tools. Quick resolution of arising problems is ensured.
