The financial services industry faces promising new business opportunities made possible by the arrival of disruptive technology trends such as network automation and the Internet of Things (IoT). Across all sectors of the industry—from insurance and global banking to market participants and execution venues—digital disruption is giving companies a fresh take on how to stay competitive.

While these technology innovations are creating abundant opportunities in both the front and back office, they also lead to a world of new security vulnerabilities that most businesses are not currently able to combat.

At Juniper Networks, we recognize that financial services institutions like yours sit squarely in the nexus of service providers and Web 2.0 companies. We can help you build an IT infrastructure that delivers the performance and scalability of the largest service providers, with sophisticated, all-pervasive and integrated security designed to foil today’s advanced cybercrime.
