🤔 The problem

Managing risks

CFC relies on accurate data for risk modeling and comparison to threat intelligence feeds. For instance, to determine the impact of a potential regional outage by various service providers, they use IPinfo data to analyze the geographic distribution of their insurance portfolio’s IP addresses. Additionally, they 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 accurate data collection at scale.

⏳ The process

Finding the right IP address partner

To provide an efficient quoting system for customers while also mitigating risks, CFC needed to enrich its data feeds with accurate geolocation data. They quickly discovered that the right IP address partner had to have the reliable infrastructure and precise datasets. Here are the reasons they chose IPinfo:

  • Accurate data
  • Reliable infrastructure
  • No downtime
  • Excellent documentation
  • Good UI
  • 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.
