Strategic Keys to Success for the Financial Services Industry: Secure, Resilient, Performant Networks

27th September 2021 | 11:30am - 1:00pm EST | 4:30pm - 6:00pm BST
How can you achieve digital transformation success by utilizing network and application visibility and performance?

A Meet the Boss roundtable brought to you by Riverbed

Like every other primary industry, Financial Services Institutions (FSIs) spent much of 2020 reacting to point challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. So, naturally, 2021 brought about change, as well as a refreshed focus on improving operations to meet users’ expectations and enhance business resiliency while strengthening their overall security posture.

That said, digital transformation efforts often breed complex, hybrid IT infrastructures, making it increasingly difficult to monitor the network and applications. Diagnosing and troubleshooting the network issues tend to take longer. Yet, customers demand frictionless experiences in this unprecedented environment, exacerbating the need for uninterrupted, omnichannel services.

To achieve digital transformation success, FSIs need to implement three key strategies:

  1. Optimize the digital experience for not only the digital customer who increasingly relies on any time/anywhere banking but the digital employee who will remain in a remote or hybrid work environment.
  2.  Increase network resiliency, agility, and scale as FSIs adopt a digital infrastructure and migrate to the cloud.
  3.  Strengthening security posture as cyber threats continue to occur at an alarming rate.

Join Riverbed experts and a select group of industry peers to discuss challenges and ways to ensure a fast, secure user experience. You’ll also explore the benefits of cloud technology in facing these challenges, as well as how to detect network security threats across a distributed workforce.
