Helping Banks Secure Their Data And Stay Compliant
Banks are facing a tough economic and political climate and a fast-changing regulatory landscape. Consumer confidence is low, while the need to respond to competition from new industry entrants is increasing. The G20 reforms are forcing banks to adopt more stringent capital and liquidity retention policies and at the same time invest in IT infrastructure to ensure compliance with data protection and business continuity requirements. As banks across Europe look for ways to address these challenges, agility is a prerequisite for success.
At the same time technology advances not only offer an opportunity to increase competitiveness, but also to meet the challenge of ‘Big data’ head on - turning structured analysis of information into business value, harnessing high-performance computing and accelerating time to market, and harnessing the power of cloud technology.
When it comes to your IT infrastructure, it’s clear that cost-effectiveness, flexibility, scalability and security remain important attributes. With state-of-the-art data centres in 13 cities across 11 European countries, we provide the reliable and secure environment you need to stay agile and to keep your data safe. Our facilities are built to accommodate high-density configurations and meet the demands of high-performance and supercomputing environments and are located in close proximity to the main financial centres.
