Ensuring uptime in finance
Finance is one of the most regulated industries in the world. Constantly facing newly emerging threats, compliance requirements, and customer demands, a network disruption can dismantle credibility and render systems useless.
To meet these demands, financial institutions are integrating more IoT at branch locations, increasing the usage of mobile apps and creating more distributed sites – all requiring additional network capabilities. As these organizations adjust their operations to accommodate these needs, a new set of network requirements must be met, such as faster bandwidth, increased security and the ability to scale to ensure business continuity.
Opengear solutions are deployed by some of the largest financial institutions in the world. Ensuring always-on network resilience, they ensure that infrastructure can be managed remotely and are scalable.

Creating compliant and secure networks
The average cost of a data breach is $3.86 million, which can result in brand damage, lost customers and thousands of dollars in fines. In finance, cyberattacks, such as malware, mobile apps, and unencrypted data, are one of the largest threats to network security. In an effort to decrease disruptions and safeguard customer information, a variety of regulatory requirements have been created.
Opengear solutions provide enterprise-grade security for edge and core networks. Advanced security and encryption features that are built-in to each device ensure that routers, phones, and ATMs are updated with the latest compliance standards. Lighthouse Centralized Management gives organizations full visibility into their network to detect faults before they become failures.

Deploying SD-WAN in financial networks
Financial organizations understand the important role proximity plays when improving customer experiences. To broaden their reach, many are expanding their branch locations and using more kiosks. Deploying SD-WAN establishes secure VPN connections across any service and provides the necessary bandwidth for cloud tools and services, becoming more used within the industry.
However, advanced SD-WAN routers create single points of failure and a network disruption can cause financial institutions many issues. Failover to Cellular™ provides internet connectivity for remote LANs and equipment using 4G LTE in the event of a disruption. Smart Out-of-Band provides an alternate secure pathway so the network continues to operate when other circuits are unavailable.
