London based digital finance company, Wonga, has rapidly become one of the worlds most innovative and successful credit providers. Serious about their commitment to responsible lending and putting the customer at the heart of everything they do, the company has grown at an impressive rate since its inception in 2007. Wonga’s strapline of ‘straight talking money’ for short term cash loans encapsulates its approach to providing credit with simple, transparent and flexible services.
Automation is a key word for Wonga. By using fully automated and real-time risk technology to process thousands of pieces of data, objective lending decisions can be made instantly. This automated and realtime risk approach goes further than loan decisions. By applying the same ethos to securing its IT infrastructure Wonga has ensured that the thousands of pieces of sensitive financial and personal information stored within its IT environment is protected from both internal and external IT security threats.
