Banking & Finance


Financial institutions are concerned now more than ever with protecting their cyber-based systems from attack and exploit by hostile sources. Most financial companies now have a significant investment in online systems whether it's online banking, stock trading or customer services. Financial institutions must maintain a trusted relationship with their online customers. If that trust is broken, they risk a large cost from losing current customers, and from potential customers that will not do business with institutions that are viewed as untrustworthy. Compounding this risk is regulatory compliance mandates such as the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) that require financial institutions to demonstrate their ability to protect their critical financial systems.

Cyber Asset Protection

Detection of security threats is the first line of defense against cyber intruders. Promia RavenTM systems detect and report, in real time, attempts to exploit your cyber systems. Critical incidents are reported and highlighted so that your network operations personnel can be alerted of pending threats and can take immediate action to thwart them. The Promia RavenTM appliances provide inline, dynamically enabled blocking so that not only can you detect intrusions, you can stop them in their tracks.

Cyber Asset Monitoring

In addition to protecting your systems against cyber threats, the Promia RavenTM systems actively monitor your information systems assets so that you can be assured they are up and running to service your online operations. If a system goes down for any reason, it is immediately flagged for attention by your system's personnel. This includes detecting new devices that are attached to your network, whether they are authorized or not, and show you the difference. Through our highly effective, 3-D visualization you literally see your network in action. Browse through local and remote enclaves (or subnets) to see remote locations, and develop custom views so that critical assets can be grouped and monitored directly. Details are a click away including system configuration, services, operating state and currently active security threats.

Compliance Assistance

Compliance can be daunting and expensive. Promia RavenTM systems are Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) compliant to the implementation guidance that PL 107-347 explicitly required by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to develop and promulgate as Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) in the following areas:

  • Audit and Accountability Certification
  • Accreditation, and Security Assessments
  • Configuration Management and Incident Response
  • Systems and Services Acquisition
  • System and Communications Protection
  • and System and Information Integrity.
