The Saudi Investment Bank (SAIB) has entered into a partnership deal with American-Japanese cybersecurity provider Trend Micro to ensure a secured environment for its customers.

The bank has deployed the security innovations to guard its digital estate against a range of threats. SAIB has made a shift from a traditional system to modern virtualized architecture and it has to focus on a multifaceted approach.

Developing its existing defense controls, SAIB has applied a zero-trust model that employed preventive controls with advanced detection capabilities. Using the Trend Micro solutions the bank will now be 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. 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 can detect malicious activity and protect your environments.”

SAIB has deployed Trend Micro’s Deep Discovery Inspector to monitor network traffic in its traversal routes inside data centers, between hosts and across endpoints which will enable quick response against the malicious activity such as ransomware delivery or advanced persistent threats.

The Deep Discovery Email Inspector will observe the company’s corporate communication which will protect users and warn stakeholders of threats as they occur.

Companies are facing many difficulties in the new normal and they have to restructure their businesses to meet the evolving needs of the customer says Dr. Moataz Bin Ali, vice president, Trend Micro Middle East and North Africa.

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