Cisco powers Invest Bank’s digital transformation


To address the fast-changing customer expectations and tap opportunities created by the digital era, Sharjah’s Invest Bank PSC, has deployed Cisco’s cybersecurity solutions such as Advanced Malware Protection (AMP), to increase IT agility and reduce average response time from the current 10 days to 2-3 hours.

In an environment of increasing cyber threats and breaches, the bank realized the need to establish pervasive security as a foundation for its digital capability, and as an enabler of continued evolution and growth. “As we expanded our mobile digital network and internet banking services, we sought to establish a robust security framework that underlies every aspect of our digital transformation,” said Sami Farhat, CEO, Invest Bank.

Fady Younes, Deputy Managing Director and Operations Director – East Region, Cisco Middle East, said, “As the financial services industry embraces digital transformation, it faces new cybersecurity challenges that require the adoption of a holistic cyber security framework.

Cisco’s solution for Invest Banks’ digital transformation includes the intelligence-powered Cisco AMP for Endpoints, a next-generation security solution that prevents, detects, and responds to advanced threats. It incorporates intrusion prevention, system recovery, analytics insight, as well as monitoring and authentication.
