CAPABILITY


Making security work the way it should for SaaS in the financial services industry

Banks, insurance co's and other financial services firms view software as a service as a means to boost efficiency and meet regulatory requirements.

Overview

SaaS technology holds the promise of leaner and meaner performance in a host of critical areas: customer relationship management, service operations, mobility, human resources and information technology.

Businesses can accelerate implementation of these capabilities and realize tangible benefits, including lower costs, shorter time to market and improved insights into customers.

However, adopting these applications often involves sensitive information on customers, IT or other aspects of the business. As a result, data protection, regulatory compliance and security have moved to the forefront of discussions.

 We’ve demonstrated that with the right practices and tools, Saas data can be as secure as what’s handled by on-premise applications.
