For Financial Services Institutions, It’s Time for a Security Change

Financial Services Institution's Best Practices Guide 2017

Financial services institutions, or FSIs, are high-value targets for cyberattacks because of the capital they control, the personal information on customers they maintain, and the fear an attack on a bank generates in the public.

Phishing attacks on FSIs have risen steadily, especially employee credential theft - because once an employee’s credentials are stolen, cyberattackers can access customer information, employee data, even finances.

While legacy security solutions claim to block up to 99.9 percent of cyberattacks, all it takes is one employee or contractor to open an email from an unknown source, download a file from a compromised website, or in any other way fall victim to a cyberattack.

So, it’s time for a new approach, and that new approach is isolation, also known as remote browsing.

Gartner recently cited cloud-based web isolation (a.k.a., remote browsing) as a must-have technology, and Menlo Security is recognized as a 2017 Gartner Cool Vendor.
