The constantly evolving cyber-threat landscape is driving an increase in security incidents across the financial sector with a growing trend towards increasingly sophisticated attacks ranging from distributed denial of service (DDoS) to advanced persistent threats (APTs). Sophisticated intruders are bypassing traditional perimeter defences to perpetrate dynamic attacks that are highly targeted and difficult to detect. Many use well-researched exploits that target top executives or core financial platforms.

As one of the most highly regulated industries, the Financial sector is also under pressure to comply with industry regulations and data protection legislation. In response to the expanded range, frequency, and ferocity of cyber-attacks against financial institutions, the industry must adopt effective countermeasures to protect the availability and integrity of client services.
