The Costs and Risks of Legacy Networking

Financial institutions are the primary targets of cybercriminals because that’s where the money is. According to a Boston Consulting group cybersecurity report, banking and financial services organizations are 300 times more likely to be at risk of a cyberattack than other sectors. And the attacks can come from insiders, outsiders, hacktivists, or even nation-states.

With more dependency on a wide array of on-premise and 3rd-party cloud business applications, financial firms are now an even bigger target for cybercriminals looking for a big payday.

Bankers’ hours, once limited to about five hours daily, Monday through Friday, are now 24/7/365. New technologies — online banking, apps — and automation are unmatched in user convenience, but they also bring numerous new vulnerabilities to the financial services industry.

Network Security Challenges for Financial Institutions

  • Ensuring the security of corporate applications and mobile devices over public networks.

  • Protecting remote access to customer financial data and a growing array of SaaS applications.

  • Managing traditional networking hardware that can be resource-intensive, complex, and costly.

  • Providing point-to-point connections while maintaining scalability and flexibility.

OpenVPN Cloud makes it easy for retail and consumer banks, insurance companies, payment companies, and securities and investment firms to quickly deploy robust, reliable network security that mitigates the biggest cyber threats.
