Solving network security challenges in the financial services industry with ZPE Systems

The challenge: ZPE’s solution:
Preventing unauthorized access to remote management hardware Robust onboard security features like Secure Boot and self-encrypted disk (SED)
Reducing the time it takes to diagnose and resolve incidents Easy integrations with your choice of third-party automation and AIOps solutions
Ensuring secure backup access and speedy recovery of sensitive data Secure out-of-band (OOB) management over a dedicated control plane that’s separate from the production LAN
Getting full security coverage when space is at a premium Vendor-neutral hardware that can directly host third-party security solutions for converged networking
Avoiding outages at ATMs, branches, and other remote sites Cellular failover and OOB management using 5G/4G LTE

Ensure network security in financial services with Nodegrid

Your network is only as secure as the management platform used to control it. The Nodegrid family of data center infrastructure management and converged branch networking solutions protects your management interfaces using robust on-board security features, including:

  • TPM 2.0
  • Encrypted solid-state disk
  • UEFI BIOS with protection
  • Secure boot with signed OS
  • Geofencing

Streamline ticket operations with automation and AIOps

When security incidents occur in a tightly-regulated industry like financial services, tickets need to be created, triaged, assigned, and resolved as quickly and efficiently as possible. Nodegrid’s vendor-neutral hardware and software support easy integrations with your choice of third-party ticketing systems, automation tools, and AIOps solutions for streamlined security incident management.

Nodegrid devices can even directly host other vendors’ software, so you can deploy your AIOps, SASE, NGFW, monitoring agents, and more without installing additional boxes at each remote site. This is crucial at standalone ATM kiosks, in-store supermarket bank branches, and other locations where space is limited but security is paramount.

Build a resilient financial services network with Nodegrid OOB

In the financial industry, downtime costs a lot more than just lost business. Nodegrid can help you avoid regulatory issues and reputational damage using 5G/4G LTE for seamless cellular failover and remote out-of-band (OOB) management.

With Nodegrid OOB, admins have an alternative path to manage, diagnose, and repair remote infrastructure that doesn’t rely on the production network. That means they can resolve more issues remotely, reducing the duration of downtime and preventing expensive truck rolls.



You can also use Nodegrid to create an isolated recovery environment (IRE)—a dedicated environment used to rebuild and restore systems during a ransomware attack. Plus, since Nodegrid is completely vendor-neutral, you can host your recovery tools and deploy automation over the OOB network.

Case Study: Banking on Modernization to Protect a Large Financial Firm

One of ZPE Systems’ customers, a global investment bank and financial services holding company, was struggling to efficiently manage everyday certificate maintenance across a global infrastructure of more than 100,000 servers. Learn how the Nodegrid solution helped them reduce OOB complexity, decrease manual certificate querying and reporting tasks, and automate 100% of routine firmware and BIOS updates.
