Saudi SAIB partners with Trend Micro to secure its digital estate

Having moved from traditional infrastructure to modern, virtualized architecture, SAIB needed to shift its focus from a legacy model of focusing on external threats to a multi-facetted approach

  
RIYADH —The Saudi Investment Bank (SAIB) has successfully deployed its security innovations to guard the bank’s digital estate against a range of threats, and deliver more secure experiences to its customers.

Having moved from traditional infrastructure to modern, virtualized architecture, SAIB needed to shift its focus from a legacy model of focusing on external threats to a multi-facetted approach.

Building on its existing defense controls, SAIB applied a zero-trust model that balanced preventive controls with advanced and insightful detection capabilities. Using Trend Micro solutions, the bank is now able to deploy in-depth behavior analysis and fight advanced threats.

“Our vision is to provide safe and secure environments on which our customers can depend, so they can bank with ease and confidence,” said Ayman Al-Shafai, head of The Saudi Investment Bank’s Security Operations Center.

“Our partnership with Trend Micro enables us to deliver on this vision. Since the implementation, we now have more visibility of our environment; and the higher the visibility, the better you are able to detect malicious activity and protect your environments,”

SAIB deployed Trend Micro’s Deep Discovery Inspector to monitor network traffic across all traversal routes — inside data centers, between hosts and across endpoints, allowing quick response against malicious activity such as ransomware delivery or advanced persistent threats (APTs).

Deep Discovery Email Inspector now watches over the company’s corporate communications, protecting users and warning stakeholders of prospective threats as they occur.

“Enterprises in the new normal are facing battles on many fronts,” said Dr. Moataz Bin Ali, vice president, Trend Micro Middle East and North Africa.

“Reimagining their business to meet evolving customer preferences are where their efforts are needed most, while their security needs can be left to a trusted partner.

“We are proud to be chosen as SAIB’s partner in securing its digital transformation journey and look forward to continue delivering our innovations to the market – empowering our customers to better protect, detect and respond to threats.” — SG
