Aggressive competition from nimble Fintech start-ups, and new mobile application, and online banking and brokerage systems are accelerating global finance transactions. At the same time, financial institutions are facing increased fraud and security breaches and growing demands from regulators.
To perform at peak efficiency, the financial world needs to secure and assure network transaction performance. IT and network administrators require intelligent traffic management to identify and manage users and devices based on a number of factors including: traffic sources (acceptable and unacceptable applications, devices, locations, groups), traffic anomalies (connection rate burst, volume spikes, fraud) and traffic policies (prioritize business critical transactions, access control, location-based usage, company departments). Moreover, solutions need sophisticated machine learning and automation to enable real-time response to network events.
Financial institutions are turning to intelligent traffic management as a key strategy to manage the explosive growth in global financial transactions, as well as new security threats and regulations.
