Financial Services

Mitigating risk while improving ROI

Next Steps:

Overview

Financial services organizations operate large, mission-critical networks that process seemingly endless volumes of sensitive information. The critical nature of these organizations makes them the target of attacks, ranging from denial of service to information theft, initiated by malicious insiders, organized criminal organizations, unscrupulous competitors, and even hostile nation-states. These attacks are extremely costly, resulting in regulatory penalties, class-action lawsuits, lost revenue, brand damage, and diminished shareholder faith.

McAfee financial services solutions help organizations build an extensible and holistic security posture that addresses regulatory mandates while delivering connected security for networks, systems, mobile devices, and data. By working with McAfee, financial services organizations can demonstrate compliance while safeguarding sensitive information, often contained within critical databases, and mitigating business and technical risks.
