The complexity of the financial services industry presents a number of challenges that your organization must tackle on a daily basis. Fraud can cause not only financial losses, but also reputational impacts that can be crippling. One of the biggest challenges in this area is that monitoring is done in silos, causing an inability to connect insights across areas to detect complex fraud. With more organizations moving more solutions to the cloud and digital services, detecting fraud is more difficult than ever.
To solve these issues, it's essential to have a centralized tool for data, like Splunk Enterprise Security, as well as the ability to correlate and analyze the data across many different technologies and data sources.
