One of the biggest motivations of cybercrime is money. Unsurprisingly, banks and in particular e-banking customers are attractive targets for criminals. SWITCH provides a tailored service for Swiss banks, helping them in the fight against criminals with its specialized expertise.
Customers of SWITCH-CERT (Computer Emergency Response Team) have fewer and shorter incidents and thus lower costs. They are in control of the situation and have access to the know-how of an entire team of security experts for a fraction of the price.
This makes SWITCH the ideal partner for Swiss financial companies when it comes to local threat intelligence, detection and incident response. SWITCH-CERT supports the financial sector in two key tasks: fighting cybercrime and ensuring compliance.
The basic package 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.
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 from the core services package plus a few extras to guarantee banks the optimal protection. It is especially suited to banks that have their own IT security team and know that they cannot afford to skimp on security.
The threat intelligence sharing, SWITCH DNS Firewall and mobile security add-on modules are based on the latest technology and ensure the best possible protection in combination with the comprehensive know-how of SWITCH-CERT.
