Happy Customers and Happy Regulators Keep Banks in Business

With Ecessa’s SD-WAN solution we’ve gone from 3 MB to 90 MB while remaining 100% in compliance. The solution also helps us meet guidelines set by the OCC and FFIEC for back up and disaster recovery testing.  Our data centers talk as if they’re in the same building. We can back up in real time, do disaster recovery testing and share databases between branches.

Time was, you  just needed to keep up with the demands of your customers. Now you have to prove compliance with industry regulations. Secure SD-WAN helps banking and finance IT professionals do both.

When dealing with someone’s finances, security and reliability are essential in building trust. Even if a temporary outage doesn’t put customers’ finances at risk, the perception of vulnerability is costly. Inaccessible bank accounts can turn a happy customer into a concerned and worried one. Regulatory agencies can come down hard on institutions showing negligence.

Security isn’t just a nice-to-have feature. It’s the law. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security standards designed to ensure that ALL companies that accept, process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. The PCI DSS applies to ANY organization, regardless of size or number of transactions, that accepts, transmits or stores any cardholder data. The consequences of not being PCI compliant range from $5,000 to $500,000, which is levied by banks and credit card institutions.

Securing your wide area network is a critical component of PCI compliance. Ecessa secure SD-WAN solutions fortify banking and finance networks at the same time they allow organizations to increase bandwidth and ensure automatic failover and Never Down connectivity, even when a carrier has an outage.

  • Self-service banking at ATMs
  • Online and mobile banking
