King & Shaxson Migrates to Cloud and Gets Application Re-architected for Better Security and Efficiency

About King and Shaxson

The client is a UK-based financial services company, focused on trading venue, asset management, advice and training, and the safe custody of client assets. The client also boasts a global network of 5,000 employees, over 1 million clients worldwide, providing trading desk terminals to more than a hundred banks in Europe.

Executive Summary

King & Shaxson provides physical trading desk terminals to banks in Europe. The client has been facing security and software update issues with the trading application.

The client has migrated the application to cloud with the help of Axiom’s team and now has improved security and can remotely manage the application.


  • Updating the software at physical trading terminals was becoming tedious for the client as it required physical visits.
  • Client has been struggling with securing the terminals and managing the licenses.
  • Client would lose precious time having to take software backups physically.
  • VPN access provided to the client’s customers to log into the application would create performance issues.

The Results

  • The client no longer has VPN performance issues.
  • The client can remotely manage the security alerts and comply with required practices like GDPR.
