Safeguarding Financial Data with End-to-End Security Solutions



IT security is one of the biggest problems facing today’s financial service providers. Financial institutions struggle to keep up with the growth and complexity of the evolving financial ecosystem, and are challenged to meet the rapidly changing regulatory laws and compliance requirements. Financial service small and midsize businesses (SMBs) especially lack the time and budget to maintain cybersecurity, sometimes resulting in security gaps. Cyber attackers are continually searching for these gaps, and all it takes is one entry point.


With evolving security challenges, new IT solutions that can help businesses keep up are a must. Hybrid IT, which combines the full flexibility of cloud with the assurance that comes from keeping ultimate control with on-premises data centers, is the ideal option for financial service SMBs managing the ever-changing requirements. A recent Harvard Business Review analytics report showed time to market, end customer experience, and security management are top reasons businesses adopt hybrid IT. SMBs especially benefit from Hybrid IT in terms of security management and risk mitigation.image.jpg

Cyber attackers are increasingly targeting firmware because breaches are difficult to detect. In fact, recent Information Systems Audit and Control Association research reveals that more than 50 percent of cybersecurity professionals reported at least one incident of malware-infected firmware in 2016. Because of this, IT professionals need IT solutions that are protected down to the firmware.

HPE ProLiant Gen10 Servers, the world’s most secure industry standard servers, are built to protect data end-to-end. From inception to deployment, ProLiant Gen10 servers provide the best security across a hybrid world of traditional IT, public, and private cloud. With HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers, security is built in from day one with Silicon Root of Trust. Silicon Root of Trust is a direct link between the silicon and Integrated Lights Out (iLO) firmware that creates a fingerprint in the silicon. This fingerprint ensures servers only execute uncompromised code, preventing them from booting unless the firmware matches the fingerprint. Because this firmware security is built directly into the HPE silicon, businesses gain the ultimate protection against firmware attacks as well as the ability to recover the essential server firmware automatically.image2.jpg

In addition to the security from Silicon Root of Trust, financial service SMBs who invest in HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers stand to gain the following:

  • Enhanced security with advanced processors. ProLiant Gen10 servers use new Intel Xeon Processor Scalable processors that are optimized to support hybrid IT and the most high-demand applications. And with root of trust built into the processor as well as the server, securing data has never been easier.
  • Affordable scaling on demand. HPE offers flexible payment models that align with business outcomes and can scale based on unpredictable future needs, giving SMBs the ability to scale as they grow.
  • Faster adaptation to changing requirements. ProLiant Gen10 servers can come equipped with Scalable Persistent Memory, an integrated storage solution that can help businesses enhance their competitive edge by identifying areas to cut costs and effectively scale to accommodate evolving industry demands and customer requirements.
