EDB’s Customer Uphold is Celebrated in FinTech Magazine

March 13, 2024

As a leading voice in the financial sector, FinTech magazine is well known for its in-depth reports and interviews with industry thought leaders. So here at EDB we were excited to be mentioned in the March edition of FinTech Magazine as part of an exclusive interview with Christopher Adjei-Ampofo, the CIO and CISO of Uphold. Christopher is one of Computing Magazine's Top 100 IT leaders in the UK, and he’s also a longtime EDB customer. EDB has been supporting Uphold's database needs since September 2020.

In the FinTech article, Christopher explains how Uphold’s unique ‘anything-to-anything’ global trading experience enables customers to trade directly between asset classes, facilitating a future where everyone has access to financial services. He also emphasizes how important EDB’s high availability database service has been to their success.

Christopher says that while keeping abreast of the cybersecurity landscape is one of his biggest challenges in the role of CISO, he has peace of mind knowing EDB protects Uphold’s critical assets from vulnerabilities and threats, plus the added security of 24x7x365 remote DBA support. EDB has also removed the burdensome tasks of continuous critical patch and capacity management, enabling Uphold to scale its resources as its business grows. 

Christopher notes, "The services offered by EDB removes the burdensome tasks of continuous critical patch and capacity management, ensuring our resources can scale as the business grows, protecting our critical assets from vulnerabilities and threats, and the comfort of knowing we have experienced DBA's readily available. They’re another great partner within our ecosystem supporting our growth and services we provide.”

At EDB, we’re honored to be recognized by Christopher and Uphold and look forward to continuing to grow with them as they work to democratize finance and keep customers safe.
