🤔 The problem

Managing risks

CFC relies on collecting accurate data for risk modeling and comparison to threat intelligence feeds. As part of their wider data collection program, CFC needed IP geolocation data to determine the impact of a potential regional outage by various internet service providers. IPinfo data is used to analyze the geographic distribution of their insurance portfolio’s IP addresses. Additionally, CFC needed data to make comparisons against threat intelligence feeds which enable them to keep their customers safe. To accomplish all of this, they have to gather enough data to build a digital footprint for their customers. However, CFC faced some challenges when it came to finding the right data providers.

⏳ The process

Finding the right IP address partner

CFC uses dozens of data sources to measure risk within its internal systems, and selecting the right service providers is important. CFC chose to select IPinfo as a partner data provider for the following reasons:

  • Accurate data
  • Reliable infrastructure
  • No downtime
  • Excellent documentation
  • Good UI
  • Great team and support
  • Easy billing and invoice data

We love to integrate with the IPinfo API because it provides us with a highly reliable and accurate stream of data.
