Financial institutions face a mix of risk, compliance, and IT operational challenges and cyber threats. To get a handle on these pressures, organizations are using risk frameworks like MITRE ATT&CK and the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF). Furthermore, they are adopting Zero Trust or least-privilege security strategies to protect high-value systems such as SWIFT, payments infrastructure, and cardholder data environments (CDE); stop the lateral movement of bad actors; and keep up with compliance and cybersecurity regimes.
The Illumio Adaptive Security Platform® (ASP) prevents the spread of breaches by delivering real-time application dependency mapping and micro-segmentation. Financial institutions use Illumio to protect critical applications by disrupting the lateral movement of bad actors inside data centers and cloud environments.
Use real-time application dependency mapping and apply environmental micro-segmentation to comply with regulations like Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and isolate protected systems such as SWIFT and payments infrastructure. This enables you to:
Overlay third-party vulnerability scan data with an application dependency map to identify an attacker’s potential lateral attack pathways, allowing you to:
Deliver a single control plane for architecting and operationalizing security across microperimeters.
Avoid cost and complexity that stems from re-architecting your networking backbone and introducing more networking/software-defined networking and data center firewall resources.
Enable micro-segmentation with orchestration and analytics to protect financial systems from lateral movement attacks.
