Financial Services and Banking

Overview

Since the dawn of the Financial Services industry, security has always been an issue. The approach of creating walls between departments to deliver security by obscurity worked only marginally in the old days. In today’s hyper connected world it is imperative to link together all aspects of security to close those security gaps.

Security experts are realizing that they have spent the last decade upgrading systems and making investments in cybersecurity. However, it is equally important to protect and monitor physical access to the facilities and critical areas that house the people and the information systems for these institutions.

Account numbers, Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Application Information, access codes and other banking information reside on servers in enterprise facilities or in datacenters. Who has physical access to these critical assets is an important question to answer Auditors want to know and regulators want companies to have that information readily available, or face fines. The ability to manage and monitor both physical and logical identities in a common platform reduces operational cost while enhancing the overall security.

Enterprise Guardian software from AlertEnterprise® delivers a unified solution to manage identity lifecycles for employees, contractors, vendors and visitors. Guardian Predict™ delivers the added dimension of Predictive Risk Analytics and Insider Threat Protection.

To address insider threat, AlertEnterprise conducts background certification checks and conducts risk analysis prior to enabling access to critical areas, assets, devices and applications needed for operations. Additionally AlertEnterprise ensures that terminated employees no longer have physical or logical access to system, facilities and assets. Companies that are trying to do this today have procedures that are manual, time consuming, costly and cannot scale.
