As a financial services provider, maintaining the privacy
of your customers and the security of their confidential
data is non-negotiable...

But as internet technologies have changed the way you deliver services, regulations have multiplied along with online threats. IT security measures are now far more important than stout vaults and armed guards.

Designed for today’s hybrid, cloud-connected IT infrastructures, the solutions available through Altinet work together seamlessly to help you create a fully integrated security infrastructure that gives you total visibility and control—without turning security management into a full-time job.


"Altinet offer flexibility and understanding of the customer needs, cbs-logo
[as well as] demonstrable value for money with a functionally rich
solution. They provided us with excellent implementation and
continued technical support

Compliance and eDiscovery

Regulations governing the finance industry are clear about the need to archive communications—and in case of litigation those archives are critical to your business. But outdated archiving systems demand frequent, costly storage upgrades. And requests for electronic discovery can lead to many hours of work by legal and IT teams.

Barracuda Message Archiver is a simple, elegant, cost-effective solution that makes regulatory and e-discovery compliance easy. Its advanced capabilities dramatically reduce storage requirements while ensuring that your messages are securely retained and easily retrieved when needed

Secure Web Applications

Many of yesterday’s face-to-face financial transactions now take place online. But the web-hosted portals and applications over which you conduct business today are prime attack vectors for cyber criminals. Fortunately, keeping them secure and available isn’t as hard as you may think.

Barracuda Web Application Firewall provides comprehensive, integrated security and control to protect your customers and data from sophisticated attacks. It can be deployed on-premises as an appliance, in a virtual machine environment, or in the cloud.

Secure Your Network Perimeter

As web apps, mobile users, cloud hosting, and other technical innovations make it harder to define and secure your network perimeter, you’re also facing rapid growth of overall network traffic—and that growth isn’t linear, it’s a series of spikes and troughs driven by financial market fluctuations and consumer perceptions.

Yesterday’s firewalls just aren’t built for today’s networks—or today’s threats to sensitive financial data. Eventually, just keeping them effective will consume all your resources, while seriously degrading network performance.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewalls combine intelligent traffic management and WAN optimisation capabilities to help you reduce costs and increase overall network availability, while also using advanced capabilities to block cyber attackers and malware from accessing your network.

Protect Your Data

Natural disasters, equipment failures, and cyber-attacks—including the rapidly expanding use of ransomware—can suddenly leave you without access to business critical data. Until you can restore that data, you’re dead in the water. And in today’s fast-paced business environment, literally every second counts. If you’re not doing business, you’re losing business—and money.

Barracuda Backup is a unified, cost-effective solution that seamlessly and efficiently protects data in physical, virtual, and cloud environments. It can be delivered as an all-in-one, purpose-built backup appliance, or as a virtual appliance to leverage existing infrastructures.
