Security Services & Testing for Financial Services FirmAvoiding failures in a critical industry

A Texas-based broker, dealer, and flotation facilitation company needed to keep their critical communications and website safe. GDT provided custom engineering and services that enabled the quick deployment of Web Appliance (WSA) and Cisco Email Appliance (ESA).

Cisco ESA

The Cisco ESA offers faster, more complete email protection to stop email-based threats and provide continuous protection before, during and after an attack. The ESA is a proven zero-hour solution that offers best-in-class capabilities to control and encrypt sensitive outbound emails. Its layered defense quickly blocks incoming attacks while providing:

– Contextual analysis against phishing and snowshoe spam attacks,
– A superior span capture rate (>99%) with few false positives (<1 in 1 million),
– File reputation, dynamic analysis (sandboxing) and retrospective security (with Cisco AMP Threat Grid), and
– Graymail management and web interaction tracking.

Cisco WSA

The Cisco WSA combines advanced threat defense, advanced malware protection, application visibility and control, insightful reporting, and secure in a single solution. The WSA also helps secure and control web traffic. It uses multiple layers of antimalware technologies and intelligence from Talos, an industry-leading threat intelligence organization that provides updates every three to five minutes.

The GDT difference

GDT helps organizations of all sizes keep up with the latest technologies to help protect, among other things, their bottom line. GDT understands technology and works with clients to understand their business and goals prior to designing and deploying a solution that supports those goals and end user needs.
