Network security & cloud security for banks, insurance companies and financial institutions

With digitalization a wide variety of technologies are finding their way into the banking and insurance sector and are changing the industry permanently. The financial sector is considered a critical infrastructure and has the highest requirements in terms of network and information security.

Many financial and insurance service providers are already using public cloud, i.e. they use storage and computing capacities in data centers of cloud service providers. This makes workflows more efficient and enables new innovative business models. Regarding the on-going changes in industries and customer requirements, a flexible,powerful, and resilient IT infrastructure is essential. Most banks and financial institutions today work with hybrid solutions: a mix of traditional IT systems and cloud applications.

The zero-trust approach applies: sensitive customer data such as credit card information, account and insurance numbers are processed within the digital services. This data is subject to the highest level of confidentiality. There is no room for security risks here.

The highest level of security is required for finance and insurance, while at the same time fast and secure data transfers and transactions must be guaranteed. Almost all business processes are IT-supported. The systems require high availability while becoming increasingly more complex. At the same time, the threats of cybercrime are growing. Millions of phishing emails are sent out every day to gain access to sensitive banking information and hack into accounts. Robust security concepts for networks and digital services in the financial and insurance sectors are needed to withstand identity and data theft attemps and other online scams.

Reliable identity management, multi-level authentication and granular access management are needed to ensure their security. macmon offers financial service and insurance providers future-oriented security solutions for local networks and cloud resources.
