Sophos in Finance & Banking
Banks and Financial service providers are early adopters of technology innovation that helps them add value to their processes and customer offerings. But, new technologies bring in hitherto unknown vulnerabilities and risks to the systems, making this industry one of the most attractive targets for cyberattacks. In addition, the industry is continuously challenged with managing a dispersed and complex environment and the burden of staying regulatory compliant, at times moving ahead with a lack of IT resources and expertise.
We understand that banks and financial services are also the biggest bankers of their customers’ trust. Cyberattacks must not deter you from adopting new technology to drive differentiation. With our complete set of security solutions, we help you secure your network and endpoint systems; your employees, data, investments, and processes; and support your efforts to stay regulatory compliant.
