Secure customer and corporate data

Banks and financial institutions deal with millions of transactions daily, which means that much more customer data needs to be secured. Attackers seek to steal funds from hacked accounts or lay hand on personally identifiable information (PII) that can be used for malicious activities like identity theft and fraudulent use of credit cards.

Secure sensitive data wherever it is held

Secure data on endpoints

Sophos Intercept X with XDR secures your data on Windows, Mac and virtual machines. Financial data-specific data loss protection rules provide stronger protection. Hunt down evasive threats and automatically respond to incidents with Sophos XDR.

Control who can access your data

Sophos Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) gives you absolute control over who can access data on your network. Granular controls block lateral movement while ensuring only authorized people can access sensitive data.

Stop data breaches

Sophos Email encrypts personally identifiable information, sensitive corporate data, and more, stopping both accidental and malicious data breaches.

Prevent attacks from reaching your data

Sophos Firewall uses AI-powered threat detection technology to prevent attacks reaching your sensitive customer data, financial transactions, and other parts of your ecosystem.

Protect data in lost or stolen devices

Sophos Encryption provides a quick, easy way to ensure Windows and macOS devices are safely encrypted, protecting your data and proving compliance if they’re lost or stolen.

Secure branch offices

Banks and financial institutions must include security not only for each of the ATMs, but also for branches, micro-branches, and data centers.

Sophos Firewall enables users to connect securely from any location via the free Sophos Connect VPN. It’s easy to deploy and configure, and gives your remote users secure access to resources on the network or public cloud from Windows and macOS devices.

Sophos SD-RED is a small plug-and-play device that works with Sophos Firewall to allow extension of secure network to other locations easily with no local setup or technical skills required.

Sophos Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) puts identity at the center of defense, constantly validating the user, the device, and policy compliance. It controls access to your data and applications based on user identity and device health.


Protect multi-cloud environments

Sophos Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) constantly verifies the user — typically with multi-factor authentication and an identity provider — and validates health and compliance of the device for users to securely connect to corporate resources from any location. It elevates protection and minimizes the risk of lateral movement within the network by continually assessing identity and device health before allowing access.

Simplify Management

Sophos Central offers a single, web-based platform to conduct cross-product investigations with ease, correlating data from multiple services easily. It enables Sophos products to share real-time threat, health, and security information and work together to automatically respond to threats – also known as Sophos Synchronized Security.


    Support Regulatory Compliance

    Banks and financial institutions handle large quantities of customers’ money and personal and financial information. Most of them operate in different jurisdictions, each with its own reporting standard, which makes reporting and compliance management tough for this industry.

    Sophos Central provides flexible reporting tools that allow visualization of network activity and security over time. It offers several built-in compliance reports as well as easy tools to create custom reports.

    Sophos Encryption makes it easy to verify encryption status and demonstrate compliance which is especially useful in cases of lost or stolen devices where organizations must prove that these missing devices are encrypted.
