As businesses expand their digital presence and online activities, more data is transmitted and stored digitally; customers share their private information online while businesses store and transmit their proprietary information across their networks. As a result, cybercriminals and other malicious characters have stepped up their attempts to compromise private networks and use the data for nefarious reasons.

      7 Reasons Financial Institutions Need Cloud Computing & Cybersecurity

      Posted by NewCloud Networks on Feb 27, 2020 11:00:00 AM

      Cloud adoption by financial institutions has been on the rise. According to PwC, by 2020 core financial services like credit scoring, statements management, payments, and billing will use the cloud for processing and computing. From retail banking to collection agencies to asset management and investment banking, the cloud provides many use cases to bring scalability, cost savings and higher security to financial institutions. 

      The largest financial institutions have already adopted cloud technology. But it’s not just the J.P. Morgan’s or Bank of America’s of the world. Smaller financial institutions are finding the same benefits in cloud computing and cybersecurity practices that enterprises are leveraging.  Here are 7 reasons financial institutions need cloud computing and cybersecurity.

      1. Cost Savings 

      Financial institutions are leveraging the cloud to move IT operations to an operating expense model (OpEx). IT hardware and underlying infrastructure is expensive, and financial institutions are concerned about the rising costs associated with running data centers. Additionally, on-premise data centers are difficult to scale, and any growth requires large capital expenditures. Instead, hybrid cloud strategies allow banks and collection agencies to safeguard mission-critical data in the cloud without the high cost and maintenance that typical on-premise centers come with.
