Digital Transformation in Banking & Financial Services


Benefit from the advantages of a modern cloud infrastructure—without compromising security.


Transformation powered by cloud security

Businesses in banking and financial services are experiencing ever-increasing pressure to digitize, transform, and create flexible, efficient ways of working for their dispersed workforces—which can be challenging in such a complex, highly regulated sector.
That said, traditional network architectures are hindering organizations in this sector from leveraging the flexibility and speed of the cloud. Banks and financial institutions in particular have been forced to balance their reliances on business-critical legacy infrastructure with their need for cloud agility. So, how can banking and FS organizations accelerate digital transformation?

A simplified and secure digital journey

Banks have always invested heavily in security, often on-premises. To drive digital transformation, they need to shift away from bringing users to the controls, and instead focus on a zero trust approach, bringing the controls to the users. Another major hurdle is visibility into encrypted traffic, says Zscaler Field CTO Sudip Banerjee. "[Unless] you're looking at potentially every data packet, you wouldn't know what's flowing through the wire and whether it's good or bad."
