Protecting the money and personal information

The Challenge

To serve their customers and to work with their ecosystem of business partners, financial services companies need to transmit and store a lot of very sensitive content. Like most businesses, email has become the dominant form of communications to enable this high velocity of high-valued communications. Attackers are, of course, aware of this. Not surprisingly financial services firms have become frequent targets of attacks that use email as a key tactic.
