Deutsche Bank is using Texas-based WholeSecurity's Confidence Online system to provide staff with 24/7 secure remote access to its financial applications and information.
WholeSecurity says the system detects threats, including trojan horses, and delivers remote access using automatic behavioural-based software rather than signature-based systems. The application does not require users to download updates each time a new threat is identified and users are prevented from inadvertently disabling the systems detection capabilities.
Confidence Online has been integrated into the bank's VPN login sequence to provide secure remote access to employees, from the point of input through transmission.
George Young, director, Deutsche Bank worldwide remote access, says the system automatically protects employees from eavesdropping and other malicious software.
"Together, WholeSecurity and the VPN provide a cost-effective, highly scalable remote access solution that enables us to keep our employees securely connected at all times, regardless of where they log on," says Young.
