Specialist RegTech provider Shield Financial Compliance (Shield FC) announces the cloud-enablement of its compliance platform.

The Shield Cloud provides financial institutions with a full and flexible regulatory compliance solution, out of the box.

Shield's platform offers complete regulation compliance monitoring and across all eComms platforms. This covers the whole data lifecycle, from capture and Record Keeping, to analysis through flexible and comprehensive investigation. It is also future-proof, constantly evolving to meet challenges from new Regulations and advances in technology.

The Shield Cloud deployment platform offers financial institutions further flexibility regarding their data preferences. Firms can select their preferred Cloud storage provider from the prime vendors operating in the financial sector, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud. The platform is also available as a hybrid-cloud model, mixing the best of Cloud services with on-premise systems to provide any combination that best suits the firm’s requirements.

Eran Noam, VP Global Sales & Business Development at Shield FC states, “When it comes to dealing with large amounts of unstructured eComms and trade data, Cloud is an excellent option for financial institutions of all sizes.” He adds, “Asset managers, brokers and other financial firms need fast and flexible access to store data regarding eComms trades and compliance records. However, they often lack the requisite in-house IT resources enjoyed by larger businesses, while they still would like to maintain a private secured instance of their compliance data. So, for these firms a Cloud solution presents a way forward to access the necessary capabilities but without the capital expenditure.”

Eran continues, “Large firms using Cloud services have limitless capacity or performance. The Shield Cloud platform provides our customers with complete flexibility in a scalable and secure environment, it provides state of the art technology stack and with the total cost of ownership advantages for any size business, from SMBs to Large Enterprise level. We are pleased to offer customers another option in the way they monitor and protect their regulatory compliance needs in an ever-evolving environment.”
