Due to its inherent nature, the finance industry will always have one of the biggest targets on its back when it comes to cybersecurity risk. It must consistently remain up-to-date with the latest solutions for preventing and mitigating fraud, AML, and other related risks.

To help financial institutions, Aite-Novarica Group just published their quarterly Spotlight report: Risk Insights and Advisory Fintech Spotlight: Q3 2022.

ITsMine is honored to be selected as one of the five vendors included in the report. This feature praises ITsMine’s technology as one of the most innovative cybersecurity and data-protection solutions available for financial institutions and fintech firms.

Here’s a summary of the report and the other vendors that are included.

Summary: Risk Insights and Advisory Fintech Spotlight

The report profiles five vendors that help secure financial organizations and prevent fraud, AML, and cyber threats. Each company profiled in the report was selected exclusively based on its innovative solutions and approaches to business challenges faced by financial institutions and other fintech firms.

Commenting on the report, Tari Schreider, cybersecurity strategist & architect, had the following to say about ITsMine’s BeyondDLP™ solution: 

“There are so many things I really like about the ITsMine BeyondDLP solution. For example, in most DLP cases data protection passes through a gate and is inspected, while in the case of BeyondDLP, the product ‘envelops’ the data in protection.

“Safe Zones are also something that are really important for organizations, and that have the potential to positively change the behavior of an organization – as long as you’re operating in the Safe Zone, employees can share data safely and easily. The FileGPS function is also something that is powerful and unique.

“I think BeyondDLP is a game changer for any MSSP, especially when they’re trying to grow their customer base. DLP is often a gap in the tech stack of MSSPs, and offering a differentiated product can give an MSSP a massive advantage.

“The product is deployed easily and doesn’t need a lot of support, which is also great for MSSPs. I like to think of it as the ‘Swiss army knife’ of data protection, and defining the product narrowly as a DLP solution is almost limiting its positioning.

“The benefits of breach prevention and regulatory compliance are huge, especially given current and future threats, as are the ransomware prevention capabilities and a feature I love – the Heatmap, that shows where all data is in the cloud, and what data is in Safe Zones.”

Key here is MDP – Managed Data Protection as a Service, that is offered by MSSPs to their clients. With data protection becoming so critical, and MSSPs charged with protecting clients’ data, MDP is the perfect service for MSSPs to offer clients – and ITsMine is the ideal platform to provide this service.
