Bank & Financial Services Information Security, Hosted Services, and IT
As a financial institution, you are an expert in the business of managing capital risk. Isn’t it time to achieve that same outcome for your IT needs?
Banks and financial services companies have historically run their own data centers due to their high revenue, high computing power needs, and regulatory constraints around sensitive customer data. However, since 2009, evolving technologies and revenue shifts have made outsourcing compliant data storage and IT infrastructure a viable option.
Simply put, it’s no longer economical for banks to run their own data centers, but the need for compliant data storage and security and IT infrastructures hasn’t changed. If anything, it’s increased.
You need a data center partner that understands your industry.
Outsourcing a bank’s information security and IT infrastructure is a big decision and transferring legacy data and applications is a sensitive task. Rest assured, outsourcing to a third-party is advantageous for a number of reasons:
- More Flexibility: running your own data center is the most economical when its run at full capacity. Otherwise, a data center is a costly operation. Outsourcing to a third-party offers the flexibility you need to run in an unpredictable market. You can scale-up or scale-down much faster with a third-party host than you could with your own data center.
- Leave the complex IT to the experts: Leave the non-value add portion of your business to the IT experts so that you can utilize your internal staff most effectively. We’ll keep up with the ever-evolving technology market so you can focus on your business.
