Protecting Customer and Other Regulated Data

Cybercriminal activity continues to plague the financial industry. Despite increasing investments and resources, security within the financial services sector has not kept pace with evolving business demands and the proliferation of mobile workers and remote offices — creating new vulnerabilities.

At the same time, financial firms are under increasing scrutiny and pressure to comply with many data privacy and protection regulations, such as PCI DSS, FINRA, GLBA, GDPR, and other US and EU mandates. These challenges require a different approach — one that secures the decentralized nature of today’s financial industry.

iboss Secures Finance

As the financial services IT environment becomes more distributed, mobile, and cloud-based, iboss provides cybersecurity protection that can scale to meet the needs of the business. The iboss Distributed Gateway PlatformTM combines the capabilities needed to thwart attacks with the manageability and reporting features that enable organizations to be secure and compliant. These capabilities include:

 

Content filtering and application management

Web browsing in financial services organizations is business critical, as many end user applications are accessed via a web browser. Effective security must ensure employees can access business content and applications during normal business hours, while securing their endpoints from malicious websites, protecting data privacy, and preventing the loss of proprietary or sensitive data. The iboss Distributed Gateway Platform is the most comprehensive solution available for content filtering and granular application, controlling access to social media, file sharing, and evasive or malicious websites and applications.

 

Protecting the mobile workforce

The proliferation of mobile devices, if the devices are left unsecured, can pose a massive risk for financial institutions. iboss minimizes your vulnerability by providing mobile device management, enabling you to monitor, manage, and control the use of corporate-owned or BYOD mobile devices anywhere, any time. From easy authentication leveraging directory services, to wiping of lost or stolen devices, the iboss Distributed Gateway protects your most sensitive customer and other regulated data.

Phishing and social engineering protection

Combining web and content filters, anti-virus software, and security analytics, iboss is able to block access to malicious, fraudulent websites. It provides advanced malware protection using blended, best-of-breed signature and heuristic database updates dynamically for continuous, real-time protection.

 

Probing for and protecting against advanced threats

iboss protects against advanced threats in several ways. It monitors all network traffic for malware, and plugs vulnerabilities by blocking access to personal services, such as Gmail and Google Drive, from the enterprise network. And its patch management, incident response, and security analytics capabilities quickly identify vulnerabilities that need to be patched.

Because today's sophisticated hackers use hidden data channels and unseen ports to deliver malware, basic web security solutions that watch only web ports 80 and 443 don't have visibility or control that can stop these evasive threats. The iboss Distributed Gateway Platform is the only solution that provides visibility and control across all 131,070 data channels, and hidden protocols to detect and stop the evasive malware other solutions miss.  Data hijacking protection ensures that sensitive and regulated data cannot be exfiltrated from the network.
