Secure Mobile Financial Data
Mobile is at the core of banking and financial services today, for employees, agents and customers alike.

The solution is end-to-end mobile security, including:
- Complete mobile threat defense for managed and unmanaged enterprise devices
- Proactive protection from malware, network attacks and vulnerability exploits
- Integrated app protection to ensure risky devices do not expose sensitive data.
- Two-factor authentication for high-value or high-sensitivity transactions
Defend Against Targeted Attacks
With the amount of valuable and sensitive data financial services organizations transmit and store, it’s no wonder they are a cyber attacker’s favorite target. Effective security requires protecting information where ever it exists and flows. Our Data Center Security Solutions harden and monitor physical and virtual servers while our Advanced Threat and Endpoint protection guard the perimeter.
Invest in Intelligence and Training
Effective security requires a combination of technology, intelligence, and people. Many financial services firms invest heavily in security technology but tend to neglect the other two necessary components of a strong security program. Financial industry intelligence, while important, isn’t enough, and teaching personnel about security issues isn’t the same as training them.
Round out your security program with the following:
- Global threat awareness data feeds that correlate security logs and the environment
- Human intelligence that improves detection, analysis, and mitigation of threats
- Training and simulation exercises designed to provide the knowledge and experience needed to quickly react to attacks
