macmon NAC for Finance & Insurance

Network Security as an Essential Component of IT Security Concepts

In the process of digitalization, a wide variety of technologies are making their way into the banking and insurance sectors, changing the industry for good. Banks and insurance companies are among the industries with the highest information security requirements. On the one hand, this is due to the fact that almost all business processes are IT-based and there is therefore a great dependence on the availability of the increasingly complex systems. On the other hand, the threats posed by cybercrime are increasing significantly.

Many banks and insurance companies are already using public cloud, i.e., the use of storage and computing capacities in data centers of cloud service providers. This makes work processes more efficient and opens up new innovative business models. Given the ever faster pace of change in industries and customer needs, a flexible and powerful IT infrastructure is essential. Most banks and financial institutions today work with hybrid solutions: Mix of traditional IT systems and cloud applications.
