As any other organizations, financial services require an adequate response to security challenges and additionally:

  • GDPR this is on obvious protection of people’s data and secure the way it’s stored and accessed
  • The high volume of attacks that financial institutions and their IT teams face. These institutions experience thousands of attacks every day, some of the financial companies even more and the target are applications running in the Data Centers
  • Expansion attack surface as companies introduces new application with a “snap”, protection of those has to be on the “snap” level as well
  • Resource limitations to implement and manage security framework. Data centers were usually unprotected and hidden behind a big perimeter firewalls operated by few people. Nowadays when every single application must be segmented it is required an army of security staff to keep security in control
