Kong allows us to deploy on-premise, easily integrates with all the technologies we use across the company and gives us the flexibility we want to avoid vendor lock-in.

    Since all regional payment systems were previously monoliths exposing APIs separately, the API gateway was a greenfield project for Verifone. "In moving to microservices, we knew we needed an API gateway."

    Hans van Leeuwen , Lead Architect at Verifone

    As these integrations scaled up, the addition of a robust API Gateway solution like Kong to our technology stack was a no-brainer.
