IT Security for Financial Firms

Cybersecurity designed to reduce risk and maintain control.

cyber security

IT security is a vital part of any office, but especially so for financial firms whose data includes the sensitive financial information of their clients. Just complying with a regulatory security checklist doesn’t ensure your network is safe from a breach.

Dangers like phishing attacks that target unsuspecting employees and insecure Wi-Fi connections by staff on mobile devices are just two examples of how a door can be opened for hackers. Unless you have the proper security in place, it can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to clean up the aftermath of just one data breach.

According to The Cost of Data Breach Study by Ponemon Institute & IBM Security, just a single breached record can cost a financial firm $215. Multiplied by 200 records, that’s $43,000. The financial services industry is among the key targets for hacking because of the access to financial data they hold.

Are you looking for airtight IT security so you can sleep soundly at night?

Triada Networks provides a complete and comprehensive IT security plan for financial firms that addresses regulations for both Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) and non-RIAs.

Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery

Ensuring your business can weather any storm.  

triada business continuity

From cyberattacks to natural disasters, there are any number of catastrophes that can put a halt to your business and if your technology infrastructure isn’t designed for disaster recovery, you could be facing months and even years of lost revenue, unexpected expense, and loss of businesses.

According to Inc. magazine, 60 percent of small businesses close their doors within 6 months of a cyberattack. This is a consequence of not having a resilient business continuity plan that minimizes risk.

Business continuity and disaster recovery plans are an insurance policy for your company and make it possible to stay in business in the face of an unexpected disaster. They also safeguard your data and make it easily recoverable in the event of things as varied as physical damage to your office, a prolonged power outage, or server crash.

Triada Networks can help you put a comprehensive business continuity plan into place that ensures your business can weather any storm and handle any unforeseen issues that impact your ability to do business as usual.

We help you prepare for the unexpected, so if and when it does occur, you’re ready for it.

    Nothing falls through the cracks with the automated assurance component of Triada Recover.

  • Continuous Protection
    Sometimes files may be years old, but they’re still vital to your company. The backup and storage system in Triada Recover stores your data in such as way that you can keep data points for as long as needed.

  • Absolutely Secure Data Storage
    All companies, and especially those working in the financial industry, need encrypted and secure cloud storage of their data to ensure it’s not going to get hacked. Our business continuity plans include only those solutions with the strongest security so you can rest assured it’s there when you need it and only you can access it.

Secure File Sharing

Easily transfer & share files with anyone in a compliance-friendly application.  

secure file sharing

File sharing options that financial firms can rely on for security have been pretty slim up to now. If you want to easily share files with your team, mobile workforce, or external partners you had two options:

  • Less secure, consumer-grade solutions such as Dropbox or OneDrive that provide little control over your data
  • Expensive solutions that may or may not integrate with your existing infrastructure like Citrix ShareFile, Interlinks, or Box.

When you’re sharing sensitive financial data, you need to be able to have full control, be compliance-friendly, and know that the files you’re sharing are encrypted and secure. You also can’t just trust your information to any 3rd party, not when so much is at stake.

Trying to email files back and forth can have major security problems. You can’t control who opens them once they’re sent, and if files are too large, emailing can be impossible. It’s just not a good option at all!

Is there a perfect file sharing program that brings together affordability, security, and fluid integration?

Yes, there is! It’s Triada Box, which is powered by CentreStack. Our proprietary file sharing program was built to offer the best compliance-friendly file sharing solution for those in the financial industry (as well as anyone else!) at a price that’s affordable to boutique investment firms and small business.

Share and collaborate without losing control of your information. With Triada Box, you get the best of both worlds.

Why You’ll Want to Use Triada Box for Your File Sharing Needs:

  • On-Premise or Cloud Flexibility
    Triada Box was built with the flexibility to be deployed both on your own server or on ours using a private and secure container. If you want complete control, knowing all your data is stored on the server at your office, you’ve got it. Don’t want the capital expense of buying your own server? No problem! You can have all the same benefits using our secure cloud-based option.
  • Secure Remote Access
    You won’t have to worry about any security gaps with Triada Box. It’s engineered so that remote users have the same secure, compliant access as if they were on-premise.
  • Desktop and Mobile Functionality
    A lot of files are shared across different devices – desktops, laptops, smartphones, tablets – Triada Box has the functionality to work with all of them. It offers an interface that’s fast, simple, and easy to use.
  • File Locking and Admin Control
    We put you in the driver’s seat when it comes to controlling who can see, download, or share your files. You can lock files with a keystroke and set up user permissions that control who has access which files and folders.
  • Compliance Friendly
    Triada Box has all the features anyone in the financial and investment industries would want, and those you won’t find with many other platforms.

You’ll get auditing, reporting, encryption, SSL connections, and device management all to facilitate compliance.

Anti-Phishing Email Security

Keep cyber criminals out with rock solid email protection.

email security

Phishing emails are still the #1 cause of data breaches. Hackers go after the human factor, your employees, who don’t always have the tools or skills to avoid emails with malicious links that are craftily designed with one specific purpose, to trick them into clicking.

If you’re trying to ward off malicious file attachments from phishing emails, using a manual spam filter can have slow detection times, and those dangerous emails end up sitting in employee inboxes just waiting on someone to be in a hurry and not paying close attention.

One click is all it takes to infect your whole network, and often a malware script that causes a data breach can go undetected for week or months, with data being vulnerable to thieves that whole time

While phishing is the main port of entry for any number of viruses, malware, and malicious scripts, anti-phishing solutions and incident response aren’t always well integrated, so threats can remain instead of being completely eradicated.

So, how does a New York or New Jersey firm combat phishing and improve email security and outlook support, while also getting a great value?

With the world’s first automated phishing prevention, detection and response platform.

Secure Cloud Services

Get the mobility and flexibility of the cloud with security you can trust. 

Secure Cloud

There’s a reason that 83% of enterprise workflows are expected to be in the cloud by 2020. Cloud computing provides flexibility, mobility, and ensures business continuity.

Cloud-based solutions mean that you can run your business from anywhere on any device. You’re no longer tied to a specific desktop computer that holds all your data or a particular office. You can leave off on a presentation at work and pick it up on your tablet at home without skipping beat or having to deal with multiple copies or emailing back and forth.

Business continuity is an important reason that businesses of all sizes are doing more of their work using cloud services. If a disaster strikes your premises, you could end up losing all your backups and data if you keep everything onsite. By hosting your applications and data on a remote cloud server, you ensure your core business data is safe and easily recoverable.

Triada Networks offers superior cloud services that can completely transform your business and improve productivity and business continuity. We host our own Triada Cloud server that has the best encryption and security you can find anywhere.
