HALF MOON BAY, CA--(Marketwired - August 02, 2016) - Cyber adAPT® announced today that it is providing Flexible Plan Investments with a comprehensive security platform to protect its clients and partner network across the United States. By securely enabling mobile and BYO devices, Flexible Plan Investments provide highly secure communications with access to sensitive enterprise data wherever their employees and brokers need it.
Investment boils down to trust. As a leader in active investment and risk management for over 30 years with more than 600 independent broker dealers and more than 27,000 client accounts, Flexible Plan is dedicated to gaining trust, growing wealth and reducing risk. In order to operate in an industry where reputation is critical, any data transactions must be undertaken in a secure, risk-free environment.
As Flexible Plan has embraced remote access across its diverse business network, BYOD and smart devices have become central to achieving competitive advantage in today's hyper-connected world. New expectations of being always-on, on any device, with unlimited access to enterprise and cloud services need to be met without inconveniencing the user-experience. The financial services industry in particular requires the absolute assurance that any security risk is managed when these devices are connected to networks.
Flexible Plan's CISO, Jeffrey Ingalsbe said, "Now we have reduced our risk with more visibility and more insight into mobile and network behavior. We are providing more secure mobility to a diverse user base using a solution that was designed explicitly for the increasingly empowered, remote-worker operation."
Financial services firms are the primary targets of malicious online activity. Financial services topped the annualized losses statistics in 2015 with an increase of nearly 50% on the previous year1. Like many sectors, their workforces are increasingly mobile, requiring access to sensitive digital services when they themselves are located outside the traditional 'perimeter'.
Cyber adAPT SVP, Jason Lundy, commented, "We are very excited to be working with Flexible Plan Investments -- an outstanding example of a mature business which understands the expanding variety of new-world threats, and is prepared to act. Investment advisors, like many businesses, are seeing the value in secure device management with advanced detection. This is a powerful combination that will protect reputations and IP."
Financial Services and Investment Advisors can benefit from the following Cyber adAPT services:
- Strong remote access control and highly secure communications
- Invisible security, with no effect on user experience
- Advanced threat detection to protect against attacks in progress
- Fully managed cloud based service
- Simple provisioning and tamper resistance
