NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ninth Wave, the leading enabler of secure data connectivity between financial institutions and third-party applications including aggregators, fintechs, accounting solutions, tax prep software, and other consumer and business solutions, today announced that its flagship Ninth Wave Platform now supports Version 4.5 of the Financial Data Exchange (FDX) API.

As banks, aggregators, fintechs and other financial services firms continue their migration to tokenized authentication methods in permissioned data sharing, Ninth Wave is committed to providing its clients with support for cutting-edge industry standards, as well as other widely used legacy protocols. As part of this promise, the Ninth Wave Platform processes all versions of Open Financial Exchange (OFX), FDX, and other custom APIs, ensuring customers remain responsive and agile no matter which standard a third party may use. Additionally, Ninth Wave seamlessly bridges the connectivity gap for companies that have migrated to FDX, but still need to support products that require connectivity via OFX.

The recently released FDX API 4.5 includes new features that improve account number security via optional use of tokenized data for payments. These features also improve data quality for use cases such as lending, through expanded account holder information fields.
