Much of today’s mission-critical IT infrastructure in the financial sector operates within data center topologies that are often a mixture of co-located facilities and virtual cloud systems. Although the transition from traditional enterprise data center models to hybrid architecture has shown significant productivity gains, it has exposed numerous attack vectors that more and more companies are just beginning to address. In fact, a recent risk assessment from data security firm Varonis reported that 85 percent of IT professionals worldwide have changed or plan to change security policies based on recent attacks.
A global financial services firm required a console management solution that would provide robust and reliable out-of-band management for their IT infrastructure. The solution would also need to comply with new data encryption standards and protect against unauthorized access to the data center infrastructure which houses sensitive financial and customer data, including social security numbers and account information for the firm’s millions of customers.
The customer deployed the Lantronix SLC 8000 advanced console manager with the necessary flash memory to support Secure Hash Algorithm 2 (SHA 2) and AES 256 encryption. This ensures that the company is following financial regulations and data security standards. Additionally, the SLC 8000 console manager enabled secure out-of-band access over the administrator’s Ethernet channel to critical systems comprised of console managers, routers, and servers. Authorized IT personnel are now able to remotely manage essential IT equipment and deploy cost-effective upgrades as they become available.
