An Evolving Global Financial Landscape
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, the move to the cloud. From the front office to back-office operations, banks are modernizing their IT infrastructures to deliver innovative financial products while protecting and scaling the cloud infrastructure is critical. They demand high-performance, highly resilient cyber-security that can protect critical applications and infrastructure flawlessly and with low latency, 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 and increased regulatory oversight. Trading smarter and faster hinges on an ultra-low-latency trading infrastructure including high-performance, highly resilient firewalls that perform flawlessly.
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 facing new opportunities and risks as trends as diverse as social, mobile, big data analytics, and the cloud reshape the industry. To emerge a winner in the shifting landscape requires insurers to rethink their IT infrastructure to ensure a smooth move to the cloud and maximum efficiency for back-office operations. They need to protect their data center and cloud infrastructure with high performance cyber security solutions.
