Just How Secure Is Your Data?

 In MetroBlog

While every industry has experienced massive disruption with the introduction of new technologies, the financial services sector is a completely different beast to what it was just a few years ago.

Digital transformation has forever changed the interaction with personal and business customers and local and international financial markets.

There is little within the sector that has not evolved in the last decade but the most challenging aspect is that commentators believe it is just the tip of the iceberg – there is more change to come and it will arrive faster than ever before.

With the innovation and adoption of new technologies in the financial sector, the amount of data to be housed has increased a hundred fold, and the desire of most of Australia’s financial institutions for data to remain onshore in Australia has meant security is of paramount importance.

Metronode is Australia’s Best Data Centre Operator* with 10 facilities in seven cities. As the primary data centre provider to the NSW Government GovDC program and with WA Government and Federal Government data residing in the ACT and Perth facilities, Metronode’s multi-level security is world-class.

Major global corporations have commissioned Metronode to purpose-build facilities, with a new 8MW data centre constructed this year in record time in Derrimut, Melbourne, part of a national $150m construction program currently underway.

The next wave of technologies to impact the financial services sector will feature artificial intelligence, machine-to-machine learning and robots, creating more and more data along with the need for local facilities that not only feature the very best security but also are adaptable and flexible.

Financial institutions are constantly reviewing their requirements for the decade 2020 and beyond, preparing for a new wave of exponential technologies that will bring with it global cyber vulnerabilities never experienced before in any period of industry growth.

How secure is your data? Are you prepared to take advantage of emerging trends? Metronode is – drop by our stand at the Future of Financial Services event on 9th and 10th November at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney or click here to request a tour of one of our facilities.

*Metronode was named as the Best Data Centre Operator at the 2017 CommsDay Edison Awards.
