Banks are pursuing growth and profitability while remaining focused on operational efficiency. That growth and efficiency is fueled by open, flexible data centers, and (increasingly) moving to the cloud. From the front office to back-office operations, banks are modernizing their IT infrastructures to deliver innovative financial products. At the same time, protecting and scaling cloud infrastructure is critical. They demand high-performance, highly resilient cyber-security that can protect critical applications and data via internal segmentation firewalls, especially in today’s markets where banks are under constant threat of cyber-attack.
Capital markets and exchanges move at lightning speed, and the big winners are the ones who can make the right decisions in microseconds. Investment banks, asset and wealth management firms, national market exchanges, and broker-dealers must constantly innovate to succeed in today’s highly volatile market with increased regulatory oversight. Trading smarter and faster hinges on an ultra-low-latency trading infrastructure, including high-performance, highly resilient firewalls with flawless performance.
Insurance is being transformed by technology from the first customer interaction to back-office operations. Property and casualty, life and annuity, reinsurance, and brokers are all facing new opportunities and risks as trends (social, mobile, big data analytics, cloud) reshape the industry. To emerge a winner in this shifting landscape, insurers must rethink their IT infrastructure to ensure a smooth move to the cloud with maximum efficiency for operations. They need to protect their data center and cloud infrastructures with high-performance cyber security solutions.
