“A majority of companies institute proactive solutions to protect against external breaches and security threats. However, many firms may already be comprised and just not know it,” said J. Paul Haynes, CEO at eSentire. “Through these events with Eze Castle Integration and its online knowledge center, we can further educate hedge funds and investment firms on the security threat landscape, why threat intelligence and behavioral analysis are critical and how to best protect their data.”

Bob Guilbert, managing director of Eze Castle Integration, said, “Protecting data and ensuring network security is critical for any company, but even more within the financial world, as firms access sensitive information on a daily basis. Additionally, these firms must demonstrate to their investors and regulatory bodies that there are processes in place to guard against threats.  Our team is dedicated to educating and offering resources to assist firms in taking proactive steps to avoid security issues.”
