A European bank needed third-party service providers to administer some of their databases. As a large organization operating in the global market, the bank wanted to protect sensitive financial data, end customers’ personal information, and other critical IT assets from unauthorized access.
The bank’s security department decided to implement an advanced security system for administrator access control. Additionally, they needed all user sessions of third-party providers to be monitored for security compliance and logged to enable post-audit activities.
Bank representatives considered several possible solutions and decided to go with Ekran System. To reduce the attack surface, Ekran System’s team suggested solving the customer’s problem by installing a bastion host running the Ekran System Client application.
