Cybersecurity for Financial Institutions

Request a Demo

Financial institutions face numerous security challenges, including:

  • Increased attack surface and ineffective perimeter security against malware, ransomware, and lateral threats
  • Undetected insider attacks that lead to monetary loss, regulatory fines, and loss of brand reputation
  • Unpatched vulnerable legacy systems and fixed function systems such as ATM kiosks
  • Dynamic internal hardening requirements and regulatory compliance needs

ColorTokens’ cloud-delivered platform offers banks and financial services companies a proactive security approach that simplifies and streamlines protection and compliance for cloud workloads, applications, and endpoints. With ColorTokens, security teams can visualize network traffic flows in the data center, enact policies for fine-grained micro-segmentation, and ensure their most critical assets are protected from intrusion, compromise, and exfiltration of sensitive information.


Complete Visibility into East-West Traffic

ColorTokens enables granular visibility into East-West traffic in any multi-vendor data center environment. An intuitive, web-based dashboard offers users a centralized view of authorized and unauthorized traffic between critical banking applications, servers, workloads, endpoints, and across clouds -- so banks and financial services companies can avoid using multiple monitoring tools.


Critical Banking Applications

ColorTokens helps reduce the attack surface by isolating application environments, critical assets, and core banking servers through software-defined micro-segmentation based on a zero-trust approach. By micro-segmenting core financial workloads, access to these applications is based purely on the intent, thus eliminating advanced persistent threats (APTs) and zero-day malware.


Critical Servers, ATM Kiosks, and Endpoints

With fully customizable lockdown capabilities, transactional servers, endpoints, and ATM kiosks can be made tamper-resistant to known and unknown threats like malware, ransomware, and sophisticated APT lateral movement threats. By enabling process-level visibility and control of critical assets in the banking system, only the known-good (or whitelisted) processes are permitted to run.

Compliance Audits

Simplify Compliance Audits

ColorTokens helps financial organizations meet compliance standards and simplify audits by providing granular visibility across subnets and application segments, eliminating the need to analyze every access control list (ACL). It enables financial institutions to discover reachable ports on critical servers across subnets and enforce policies to block communications on unauthorized ports. Financial institutions can reduce costs by limiting the audit scope of data centers using micro-segmentation and meeting regulatory compliance requirements (PCI-DSS, GLBA, GDPR, and more).
