For far too long, investing has been perceived as something reserved for those with disposable income – people who can afford to set aside money without immediate need or concern. Traditional investment products often lock away funds, rendering them inaccessible to those who require liquidity. This exclusivity has left many individuals unable to participate in wealth-building opportunities.

About Cache Invest

Cache Invest identifies as an Investing-as-a-Service provider. They aim to challenge this notion of exclusivity by providing investment infrastructure tailored to meet the diverse needs of digital investment apps and websites so they can, in turn, answer the demands of customers. With a focus on real-time liquidity and innovative investment products, Cache Invest strives to democratise investing, making it accessible to everyone, regardless of financial status.

The Business Challenge

Initially launched as a business-to-consumer (B2C) investing platform, Cache Invest faced significant challenges amidst the uncertainties brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. The reluctance of consumers to invest during this period posed a threat to Cache Invest’s growth trajectory. 

However, amidst these challenges, Cache Invest identified an opportunity to pivot its business model to cater to other fintech founders seeking to launch their own investment apps. This shift from B2C to business-to-business (B2B) required Cache Invest to enhance its infrastructure, security, and compliance capabilities to meet the demands of its new client base effectively.

The Solution

Prior to engaging with DNX Solutions, Cache Invest already had a dedicated tech team managing their stack on AWS. However, as they assessed the need to uplift their architecture and enhance their security posture, it became evident that the needed expertise was lacking within their team.

Recognising the importance of bolstering their infrastructure and security capabilities, Cache Invest made a strategic decision to partner with DNX Solutions, sidestepping the expenses associated with hiring and maintaining an in-house team, while ensuring continuity and scalability in their operations.

Well-Architected Review

The collaboration started with a Well-Architected Review, encompassing a thorough assessment of Cache Invest’s AWS environment. This review served as the foundation for identifying areas of optimisation and improvement.

Cloud Security Review and Monitoring

In addition to the Well-Architected Review, DNX Solutions conducted a comprehensive security review, which included a vulnerability analysis to identify potential weaknesses in Cache Invest’s security posture. This analysis was augmented by the implementation of
Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) and Cloud Infrastructure Security Monitoring (CIS SIM) solutions, providing real-time visibility into security threats and vulnerabilities.

Automated Security Tools

DNX Solutions leveraged a suite of automated tools to streamline the security enhancement process, enabling Cache Invest to create a prioritised backlog of action items. This approach facilitated a systematic approach to addressing security gaps and uplifted Cache Invest’s security posture to a higher level of resilience.

Compliance Initiatives

As Cache Invest reached a certain level of security maturity, the focus shifted towards compliance initiatives. DNX Solutions guided Cache Invest on their compliance journey, ensuring adherence to industry regulations and standards. This holistic approach to security and compliance enabled Cache Invest to instil confidence among clients and stakeholders while mitigating potential risks.
