Karachi, February 02, 2021: Data is one of the valuable assets a Bank holds in trust — and to lose it or lose access to it or for it to be compromised can result in increasingly dire consequences, not only from a cost or regulatory perspective but, more crucially, from the standpoint of erosion of the trust our customers place in us to keep their data secure and private.
At the same time the digitalization of business processes, products, services that normalized mobile and remote computing, often over insecure public and personal Wi-Fi networks and devices, has resulted in a complex and evolving threat landscape with an increasingly vulnerable and blurred perimeter that, if not secured, exposes this asset. A multi-layered cybersecurity strategy is one facet of NBP’s response to the cyber threat and Kapersky’s End Point Protection solution is the product the Bank has employed to secure the ‘perimeter’.
NBP recently signed Kaspersky End Point Protection solution that offers state of the art antivirus, encryption and antimalware protection to ensure threat detection and response offering real-time threat protection to endpoints and sensitive data & applications on servers.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Amin Manji, SEVP/CTO National bank of Pakistan remarked “Kaspersky will form an integral part of NBP’s cybersecurity posture that will reduce and secure the Bank’s attack surface. Ensuring the security and safety of the Bank’s and customer’s data is core to our mission and National Bank of Pakistan is committed to provide safe and secure banking to its customers.”
Endpoint security is often seen as cybersecurity’s frontline, and represents one of the first places organizations look to secure their enterprise infrastructure. In order to move towards the goal of improved cybersecurity posture and delivering secure financial services to its customers.
The ceremony was attended by Mr. Amin Manji, SEVP/CTO of National Bank of Pakistan and Mr. Jamal Nasir, CEO SuperSecure and director Supernet Pakistan, and their respective management teams.
