APTEC’s Financial Services practice aligns best-of-breed identity & access management, data security, and risk management technology solutions with the steadily increasing regulatory pressures and compliance mandates dominating the financial services industry today.
SOX, GLBA, PCI, and FFIEC regulations all focus on the need to protect sensitive and personally identifiable information and supply proactive controls on accessing both internal and client-facing applications. APTEC can help financial services firms resolve these audit requirements with solutions that focus on providing strong data encryption methods, real-time identity and access controls, and comprehensive reporting measures across IT and business applications.
In the incredibly competitive financial services market, differentiation is key. APTEC strives to provide innovative security solutions that streamline the consumer experience and increase a customer’s confidence in supplying confidential data through a banking or insurance portal. Technologies that incorporate challenge response questions with one-time passwords or PINs provide the strong authentication required to ensure customers that their information is being adequately protected, while also giving them the ability to navigate multiple online services without having to log on more than once.
Financial services firms abide by a unique business model that demands an equally innovative delivery model. APTEC’s implementation methodologies are tailored with the agility required to successfully navigate complex global IT infrastructures that are frequently operating as independent or decentralized business silos. The inherent flexibility and modularity of APTEC’s architectural frameworks also mitigate the impact of any significant infrastructure changes caused by the recent increase in mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures, and provide a predictable and cost-effective deployment model.
