Public lender Syndicate Bank has deployed cybersecurity solutions provider Trend Micro to secure nearly 25,000 endpoints across its 4,000 branches.
Having a Pan-India presence, Syndicate Bank wanted to deploy an endpoint security solution ‘in-motion’, ensuring no impact to regular operations. The solution had to be effectively deployed, taking prioritisation to other systems during business hours into account bandwidth, and by leveraging an efficient centralised deployment system.
“Syndicate Bank decided to seek multi-dimensional protection by securing a robust endpoint protection and data loss prevention solution, with advanced security against ransomware attacks and unknown threats. They approached us and we offered an apt solution to suit their needs and protect their endpoints. Trend Micro OfficeScan, powered by XGen security, constantly learns, adapts, and automatically shares threat intelligence across the endpoint environment. This provides a blend of threat protection, which is delivered via an architecture that uses endpoint resources more effectively,” said Nilesh Jain, Vice President – Southeast Asia and India, Trend Micro.
“The lightweight plug-in DLP module, which protects sensitive data and prevents data loss via endpoints, SaaS applications, messaging, cloud storage, and web gateways, has helped protect 6,000 endpoints of Syndicate Bank, out of the 25,000 endpoint devices. This integrated DLP module has minimized complexity and reduced the cost of data security, enabling easy tracking, and securing all confidential data from multiple points within the organisation and in the cloud,” he added.
Syndicate Bank selected Trend Micro’s endpoint solution suite after rigorous evaluation of its various technical capabilities. By implementingTrend Micro OfficeScan, Syndicate Bank’s endpoint devices have gained threat protection with file reputation, variant protection, web protection, and exploit prevention.
“With the increasing ransomware outbreaks and cybercrime attacks in the financial sector, we wanted to avoid vulnerabilities and ensure virus definitions were updated on all endpoints at all times across all geographies. We chose Trend Micro as it had an advantage of a high penetration in the financial sector, due to the bespoke architecture suited for the banking and financial services environment. We are extremely satisfied with Trend Micro and their powerful endpoint protection suite, which now protects our endpoints against advanced ransomware, malware, Trojans, worms, spyware, etc., including adaptation to protect against new unknown variants as they emerge, and safeguards against data loss and theft,” said the General Manager- IT from Syndicate Bank.
