Identity & Accessmanagement

Protecting sensitive data and systems from unauthorised access

The Challenge

A bank’s success is dependent on its ability to make its services and data available to customers – and it’s also a bank’s greatest challenge.  Because when login details fall into the wrong hands, unauthorised users not only gain access to a bank’s database or applications, they can often get into the complete company network and therefore access business-critical data and customer information.  

In addition, banks also face the ongoing challenge of complying with regulations such as GDPR and Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) as part of PSD2, which are strictly controlled by external auditors and bodies such as BaFin, the German federal financial supervisory authority.
