Secure Your Corporate and Customer Data

Banking and finance organizations manage many transactions and vast amounts of sensitive data. To succeed in banking and finance, you need to protect your customers' personally identifiable information (PII) and sensitive corporate data from the dangerous tactics that malicious actors use to access your data, including credential and identity theft, phishing emails, ransomware and malware attacks, and many others.

Protect Your Financial Data, Regardless of Where It's Stored

Secure Data on Your Endpoints

Sophos Endpoint Protection secures your data on Windows, Mac, Linux, and virtual machines. Financial data loss prevention (DLP) rules provide robust protection. We offer a host-intrusion prevention system (HIPS) and deep learning, anti-exploit, and malicious traffic detection to identify malicious activities across your hosts.

Control Who Can Access Your Data

Sophos Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) gives you absolute control over who can access data on your network. Granular controls block lateral movement and ensure that only authorized personnel can access your data.

Prevent Attacks from Reaching Your Data

Sophos Firewall's AI-powered threat detection prevents attacks from reaching your sensitive customer data, financial transactions, and other parts of your ecosystem. Flexible segmentation options via zones and VLANs separate levels of trust on your network and protect against lateral movement.

Stop Data Breaches

DLP capabilities in Sophos products detect sensitive data and prevent leaks via email, uploads, and local copying. Sophos Email encrypts your PII and other sensitive corporate data to stop accidental and malicious data breaches.

Server-Specific Data Protection

Sophos Server Workload Protection provides server and container security for your on-premises, virtual, and multi-cloud environments. It stops advanced attacks and enables you to quickly identify and address suspicious activities.

Protect Data on Your Lost and Stolen Devices

Sophos Encryption provides a quick, easy way to ensure your Windows and macOS devices are safely encrypted, so you can protect your data and prove compliance if they are lost or stolen.


Secure Your Branch Locations

The Sophos Secure Access portfolio lets you securely connect your remote and branch sites, deliver critical cloud and SaaS applications, and share data and information. It includes Sophos ZTNA to support secure access to applications, Sophos SD-RED remote Ethernet devices to safely extend your network to your branch offices and remote devices, Sophos Wireless access points for easy and secure wireless networking, and Sophos Switch for secure access on your LAN. Everything is managed through Sophos Central, which provides an all-in-one cloud security platform.



Support Your Hybrid Workers

With Sophos ZTNA, you can securely connect to your corporate network and resources from any location, eliminate vulnerable VPN clients, and offer secure and seamless access to resources defined by your policies.

Support your BYOD environment with Sophos Mobile, which ensures your sensitive financial and corporate data is safe and employees’ personal information remains private. Sophos Mobile's Enterprise Mobility and security management capabilities allow your employees to securely access your corporate network from any device, from any location.

Protect Your Multi-Cloud Environments

Sophos Cloud Native Security provides complete multi-cloud security coverage across your environments, workloads, and identities. It offers flexible host and container workload security for Windows and Linux to protect your cloud infrastructure and data. Cloud-native behavioral technology, exploit runtime detections, and other multi-layered technologies protect against ransomware and other advanced attacks. They also identify container escapes, kernel exploits, privilege-escalation attempts, and other threats.


Comply with Industry Regulations

Finance and banking organizations must comply with ISO/IEC 27001, GLBA, GDPR, SOX, PCI DSS, and other industry regulations. Most of them have offices with operations in different jurisdictions, and each jurisdiction has its own reporting standard. This makes reporting and compliance management difficult.

In most cases, encrypting financial records and transactions, PII, and other sensitive data is the difference between a safe harbor and having to notify the public about a data breach. Sophos Encryption protects your devices and data. It offers full-disk encryption for Windows and macOS and helps you verify your device encryption status and demonstrate compliance.

Sophos Central provides flexible reporting tools so you can visualize your network activity and security. It offers built-in compliance reports and easy-to-use tools so you can create custom reports.

Sophos Mobile ensures the integrity of sensitive data on the mobile devices that your employees use to access your company database and other corporate resources. It promotes device encryption and ensures you can deny access to emails, networks, and other resources if a device does not comply with your company's policies.
