Malwarebytes for Finance

Because money and malware never sleep.


Visibility into Endpoints

Financial institutions often struggle to obtain useful optics into, and situational awareness from, the security status of their endpoints. In fact, financial institutions report that advanced threats remain undetected on infected endpoints for 98 days on average (dwell time).*

Regulatory compliance

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), SOX, and an alphabet soup of regulatory agencies and acts require strict compliance, often with cybersecurity mandates that include endpoint security directives. Failure to meet these requirements can result in stiff fines.

Reputation protection

Trust is critical for customer acquisition and retention, so financial institutions find themselves especially vulnerable to the reputational damage caused by security breaches. Damage to brand and image takes far longer to repair than that done to the compromised IT infrastructure itself.
