Financial services IT professionals are tasked with securing a wide variety of applications to run the business, improve productivity, and enhance customer service – especially high-value apps such as messaging platforms, payment platforms, and trading apps. In addition, they must protect sensitive customer data against all forms of malware attacks. Recent hacks against financial companies around the world only serve to highlight the security gaps that still exist in the financial institutions that are supposed to safeguard your money.
