According to “Modern Bank Heists Report 5.0,” 60% of cyberattacks result in island-hopping, wherein the adversary hijacks the digital transformation of the financial institution (FI) in order to attack their customers. In addition, 94% of FIs suffered attacks wherein an application programming interface (API) was the attack vector. With cybercrime cartels using application attacks to manifest criminal conspiracies, it is imperative that you defend from within. 


Trust and confidence in the safety and soundness of your applications and APIs is paramount in 2023.  Contrast Security is  committed to protecting the financial sector. Our participation in the FS-ISAC and Cyberfraud Taskforces of the US Secret Service underscores our dedication to the sector.”

Vigilant Digital Transformation

Today's adversaries understand the failures of perimeter security and the critical interdependencies we share with applications. As we digitally transform, we must do so with vigilance.  
Code security is paramount for financial services firms. Traditional security tools simply can’t meet the demands of today’s fast-moving financial services developer teams. Not only are existing tools inaccurate, they slow teams down, clogging up the development pipeline. Today, as you strive for greater agility and speed, DevOps teams are under increasing pressure to release secure code faster. 
Contrast Security solves these problems with a unified approach that lets developers weave in security as they write while also safeguarding client trust with real-time attack protection.
