Trident Technology Platform

At the heart of Austin Capital Bank’s financial innovation is our proprietary Trident technology platform. The Trident platform is built with a robust scalable micro service architecture interconnected by APIs, allowing the bank to rapidly prototype, test, and deploy innovative financial services both internally and for our partners.

Trident technology allows the bank to securely offer financial services online with true ‘Bank Security’ operational and technology protocols for all personal, credit, and financial information. As part of a FDIC insured bank, both the bank and its information technology are examined directly by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation on a regular basis. All accounts and funds managed on the Trident platform are fully insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation up to the highest allowable FDIC insurance limits. Sensitive information stored on the Trident platform is encrypted at multiple levels in the its databases and application layers as well as using a HTTPS/SSL 256 bit encryption layer with web browsers to protect sensitive information while in transit between web browsers and the Trident platform.

As a FDIC insured bank, the financial strength and stability of Austin Capital Bank is regularly examined by both Federal and State bank examiners so you know your partnership with us is secure and low risk.

Our Brands

Credit Strong ( ) is the first bank brand we launched on the Trident platform. Credit Strong is the reliable way for consumers to establish, build, or rebuild strong credit. The Credit Strong product line builds on the bank’s experience of offering the first nationwide credit builder account. Since 2016 Austin Capital Bank has opened over 50,000+ credit builder accounts. Credit Strong accounts are the first credit builder accounts in the United States offered online nationwide that combine both an installment credit builder loan and a savings account to help consumers build credit and savings simultaneously in a reliable and safe manner.

Austin Capital Bank will be launching multiple new revolutionary financial products and brands in 2019 on the Trident platform.
