SWITCH-CERT core services

Core Services is the basic SWITCH-CERT for Banks package. It is particularly suited to financial institutions that have outsourced their security infrastructure or banking software and are looking for a provider-independent view and additional security measures. They also receive an accurate and up-to-date overview of the local threat situation with tailored monitoring, threat classification and recommended actions.

SWITCH-CERT advanced services

We help the people responsible for operational online security to strike a balance between innovation and keeping costs down so that they can spot complex threats at the earliest possible stage and successfully defend against attacks. The Advanced Services package includes everything in Core Services plus a few extras to guarantee banks the best possible protection. It is especially suited to banks that have their own IT security team and know that they cannot afford to sacrifice security in favour of low costs.

SWITCH-CERT add-on modules

The «threat intelligence sharing», «SWITCH DNS Firewall» and «mobile security» add-on modules are based on the latest technology and ensure optimal protection in combination with SWITCH-CERT’s comprehensive know-how.
