As security threats increase and regulations continue to change, the IT departments of banks and credit unions find themselves constantly playing catch up.
And while these are very real threats to the business, IT professionals in a typical bank or CU will tell you that budgets aren’t exactly increasing year to year. Tech updates are planned, pushed, and replanned as priorities are in a constant state of reshuffling.
While it is not often the first thing considered, updating your existing WAN may be the one decision that fixes a number of infrastructure challenges. And the best part is that it is often done without any net increase in expense.
At most financial institutions, VPN and MPLS connections have been in place for years. When talking to a new customer we often hear, “this is just how we have always done it”. Many times customers are shocked to hear that the fix is far easier than the pain and risk they have been dealing with.
To help educate banks and credit unions on the benefits of moving to software-defined WAN connectivity we are hosting a webinar alongside our partner, Ongoing Operations.
In this webinar, “Next Generation Networking: Replacing VPN and MPLS in Banks and Credit Unions”, will discuss the way that updates to WAN connectivity can increase security, improve compliance and even lower the total cost of ownership for many financial institutions.
Join us March 4th at 11:30a to learn how the answer to greater security and compliance could be a lot closer than you think.
