ING Direct, the Internet and phone banking operation of the Dutch bank ING, is implementing Cyber-Ark's vaulting technology to protect key information resources.
The bank is using Cyber-Ark's Network Vault system to create a secure repository for key resources, making them accessible enterprise-wide to appropriate personnel. The system also enables the bank to track the use of resources, assign access rights and to create resilient access to critical assets for disaster recovery purposes.
David Lewis, ING Direct's chief marketing and IT officer, says managing continual access, especially for hundreds of heterogeneous IT systems and devices, is both time-consuming and problematic.
"Network Vault securely streamlines the resiliency of access methods, enabling us to centrally manage key resources. It solves a major problem by assuring the security - and accessibility - of our most important IT assets," says Lewis.
