Securing Financial Companies From Cybercrime

Financial Services Companies Must Protect Users, Devices, Networks, ATMs and Apps in Increasingly More Complex Environments with Escalating Cyber Threats

Are Your Users Protected?

Financial services companies remain the top target for cybercriminals. Pulse Secure lets security teams defend against intruders, ransomware and ATM exploits while taking on open banking and other digital business initiatives.

Penetration Testing Study

  • 100% of banks, were found to have vulnerabilities in web applications, insufficient network security, and server configuration flaws.
  • 58% of banks had deficiencies in user account and password management.
  • 22% of banks allowed external penetration testers to successfully breach the bank’s network perimeter.

Banks are Under Siege

Despite generally having the largest and best-trained professional security teams, the biggest security budgets, and the most advanced security systems and practices, financial services companies are still outflanked by cybercriminals. A bank must successfully defend against every attempted attack or exploit, while an attacker only needs to see one attempt successful in order to penetrate a network. New digital business initiatives further increase these pressures and move the odds in favor of attackers. Security teams and resources are already over-stretched and have difficulty keeping up.

Consistent Protection Against Blind Spots, Weak Links and Potential Attacks

Pulse Secure allows financial services companies to secure their environments while pursuing new digital business initiatives.

Visibility Into What’s on the Network

Financial Services companies can use Pulse Profiler to automatically detect and continuously profile managed and agentless devices on various networks and resources.  With a single view of all devices connecting to all environments, the security team can monitor devices for profile changes, track device inventory for asset management and gather connectivity information for troubleshooting.  With Profiler providing visibility, and threat reduction covered by Pulse Policy Secure, companies are fully protected from malware attacks and detected threats are rapidly isolated and mitigated.

Granular Security Policies for Any Use Case

Financial companies can implement a policy-driven “comply-to-connect” strategy that controls access to resources and services, based on device type and health, domain, locations, resources, users and groups. Pulse Policy Secure strengthens network security posture with capabilities that include endpoint vulnerability assessments, device posture checks and alert integration with next generation firewalls for speedy mitigation.

Secure Access Regardless of Location, Device or User

Employees can use the Pulse Client to securely access necessary resources remotely via the Pulse Connect Secure VPN, or locally via the shop WiFi network.  Pulse Policy Secure authenticates employees locally based on their role and desired resource, automatically provisioning firewalls without manual intervention to provide remote access and immediately address customer or business needs.
