Security Solutions for Financial Service Firms
When we receive notifications from our Qualys scans we instantly see a comparison to the previous scan and know if everything is okay, or if there is a new vulnerability we need to take care of right away.

Financial firms, no matter their size, or whether publicly or privately owned, need to not only stay secure - but must be able to validate that level of security to internal and external auditors.
A number of the regulations include Sarbanes-Oxley, which calls for the strict protection of financial-reporting information, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), which mandates protected customer financial information be maintained to high levels of security and privacy. Finally, if the institution accepts or processes credit cards, there's the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). That's in addition to, depending on the nature of the firm, mandates from the FDIC, the Federal Reserve, or the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS), and the data breach disclosure laws in place in nearly all fifty states.
For these reasons, more small and mid-sized enterprises seek security solutions that help them to enhance their security efforts by putting in place effective and sustainable vulnerability and risk management programs. In this way, small and mid-sized enterprises can quantify their compliance and security progress and proactively maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their IT systems and sensitive customer information.
