Provide Visibility and Improved Operational Efficiency for Banking Cloud Endpoints

With the migration to cloud networks underway, companies are focused on the long term benefits of lowering their costs, utilizing faster innovation and improving customer satisfaction. Many industries have been taking a wait and see approach due to maturing technology and the limited monitoring and security capabilities available, but they are busy testing and planning for the eventual leap to the cloud. The banking industry - known as a leader in technical innovation - is again at the forefront.

Why is the cost of network downtime so high in the banking industry?

on 10/29/19 8:00 AM By | Steve Harris | 0 Comments | Network Security Finance
The banking industry has changed. Today’s retail banks are actually in the customer service industry. This is due to the fact that there is very little differentiation in product offerings from one bank to another. A checking account, CD, and other account offerings are very similar from one retail bank to another. Banks instead strive to deliver the best experience possible for their customers to set themselves apart from the competition. As a result of digital transformation, banks must ‘always be on,’ so customers can access their money anytime, anywhere. Any unexpected network downtime can be extremely costly not just for the branch location, but creating lasting implications for the organization as a whole.

How has your financial institution responded to digital disruption in recent years? If you have struggled to truly unlock the value of technologies like hybrid cloud, API platforms, artificial intelligence, block-chain, instant payments, and more, don’t worry—you are certainly not alone!

Data at Risk Series: Cyber Attacks Are a Burden and a Blessing for the Insurance Industry

on 3/8/16 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments | Network Security Hacks and Data Breaches Finance
In our first insurance installment in the Data at Risk series, we took a fairly narrow approach to cyber attack analysis in the industry. While major breaches at health insurance companies such as Anthem and Blue Cross Blue Shield make it seem as if the insurance industry is especially vulnerable to cyber attacks, these are often classified under healthcare breaches. Non-health insurers may not see high-volume data breaches, but cyber attacks offer a great opportunity for the industry—but with that opportunity comes great risk.
