It automates and orchestrates the complete eComms compliance lifecycle, delivering all elements of capture, correlation, data enrichment, analytics, proactive and preventive detection. Shield’s solution is designed to empower numerous functions within regulated organizations, from departments such as surveillance and monitoring, risk and governance, forensic and control, all the way through to conduct and management.
Eran Noam, VP Global Sales and Business Development at Shield said: “Shield is excited to be working with IBM to help create a secured financial services ecosystem where banks, ISV partners and SaaS providers can transact with confidence. Financial institutions are moving to the cloud, so cloud infrastructure providers and ISVs will need to address the special needs of these firms. Onboarding our offering to IBM Cloud for Financial Services will be a big step towards that.”
The IBM Cloud for Financial Services is designed to address the requirements of financial services institutions for regulatory compliance, security and resiliency. The platform is supported by a growing ecosystem of ISV partners committed to onboarding their offerings and cloud services to help accelerate transactions with financial services institutions.
