Cue the confetti and cake - Eze Castle Integration is turning 23 years old this month!

Just as times and technologies have changed, Eze Castle has continuously evolved over the years. We've certainly come a long way from our founding in 1995, when childhood friends John Cahaly (our current CEO) and Sean McLaughlin pitched their first trading solution to Fleet Investment Advisors - a product they developed in a small apartment above Sean's father's dental practice. Today, we have 11 offices across the US, Europe and Asia with a staff of almost 350 employees supporting over 650 finacial clients.

Our first 23 years have certainly been an exciting ride! Check out our timeline and some fun facts about our company below.

Why Private Equity Firms Prefer Eze Castle's Outsourced Cloud Solutions

By Private Equity Wire,
Thursday, March 1st, 2018

This article originally appeared in the February 2018 Private Equity Wire Awards Special Report. Eze Castle Integration won Best Technology Outsourcing Cloud Provider.

Fund managers face a multitude of pressures today, ranging from regulatory to investor demands for improved transparency and evidence that their data is being stored and secured to the highest standards.

Best Cloud for Private EquityThis is a lot for PE groups to take on, who need to focus on the investment process without getting sidetracked having to manage technology risk. As such, demand for outsourced cloud solutions has strong momentum, with Eze Castle Integration very much at the forefront of this.

“We want to be sure that the technology being leveraged supports best-of-breed technology, both in the cloud as well as on-site,” explains Mark Coriaty, Chief Strategy Officer at Eze Castle Integration. “Fund managers want to ensure that their day-to-day workflows are reliable, secure and running off best-of-breed technologies.

“We have all of those components bundled together to provide a turnkey solution, whether that be our Eze Private Cloud or Eze Hybrid Cloud.”

The Eze Private Cloud is a very controlled environment. It contains a lot of components to do with private networking, client controls, data integrity controls, as well as enterprise standard security measures.

To adapt to the changing market landscape, Eze Castle Integration is able to offer all of its clients a hybrid cloud solution, if they wish, by combining the Eze Private Cloud with public cloud services.

As Coriaty explains, the hybrid cloud takes two things into account: “The standards that we put forth as best practices to our clients within the Eze Private Cloud, as well as all the regulatory requirements that alternative fund managers face. Then we connect key components of Microsoft’s public cloud.

“We have directly connected our private cloud with the Microsoft Cloud so that we can look at and control all the networking, the security components, as well as the end user experience.”

Our Best Of Cybersecurity Articles in 2017

By Amanda Daly,
Thursday, January 4th, 2018

As we are about to finish the first week of 2018, its’s time to share the best of Cybersecurity Articles we wrote in 2017. It can be a daunting task to keep up with everything cyber, so we highlight some of the best Cyber Articles for our readers.

Beware of Security Risks Lurking Behind Public Wi-Fi

Public Wi-Fi networks are incredibly convenient and can be a great resource at the airport, coffee shops, or lengthy train commutes. Alongside convenience with public Wi-Fi, we see a host of unnecessary risks. On open, unsecure networks, information is generally unencrypted, meaning with the use of a wireless network analyzer, it’s fairly easy to see what others are up to. Attackers try to intercept the communication between your computer and the computer you are sending information to so that they can gather useful information. A hacker, for instance, can see what webpages you’ve visited and what credentials you’ve entered into forms.

Common attacks that occur on public wifi:

  • Man-in-the-middle attacks
  • Malware
  • Wi-Fi Sniffingg

Is “Smart” Technology Invading Your Privacy?

After this holiday season, emerging ‘smart’ technologies such as Amazon’s Echo and Google Home are making their way into many homes, making it simple to find for users to stay up-to-date on the latest news, ask for directions, or hear tomorrow’s weather forecast. The Echo’s voice assistant, Alexa, for example, can complete advanced tasks such as turning on lights and changing the temperature of your home. The Echo is also capable of playing music, giving directions, and can even re-order an item you’ve purchased on Amazon. Google Home has many of the same features that the Amazon Echo has. Google Home is powered by Google Assistant. Smart technology is a playground for hackers.

These devices are effectively always listening and, at some times, recording what you say… so how secure are these devices? It’s important to remember to treat your smart device just as you would any other personal device, and that means keeping security top of mind. Read more on smart technology here.

Technology Trends to Watch in 2018

By Mary Beth Hamilton,
Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

The new year is upon us so time for predictions, watch lists and resolutions. Here’s our take on some technology trends we see within our client base as well as buzzing across the industry.

Cloud Transformations: Hybrid Grows & Connections Matter

In 2017 hybrid cloud gained traction as companies embraced its ability to combine the benefits of dedicated private environments with on-demand public cloud resources and application sets. In 2018 we expect broader mainstream hybrid adoption for everything from application and infrastructure services to disaster recovery.

With hybrid cloud use increasing, the importance of establishing and optimizing connections across networks and clouds will become a priority. Eze Hybrid Cloud, as an example, has direct connections to the Microsoft Cloud as well as market data, FIX networks and fund administrators.

Eze London 10 Years Later: Visiting the Past and Looking to the Future

By Kulvinder Gill ,
Thursday, July 6th, 2017

Last month, the Eze Castle Integration team in London celebrated its 10th anniversary. The momentous milestone was marked with a staff party at a traditional pub on the River Thames with panoramic views of the city. I recently sat down with Simon Eyre, director of service, who was one of the three employees transferred over from New York to help setup the London office, to talk about the ten years in an ever-changing technology landscape and look into the future.
