FINANCIAL SERVICES CLOUD SOLUTIONS Cloud evolution is table stakes for the financial services industry. Cloud technology continues transforming the financial services industry across the banking, payments, insurance, and wealth management sectors. This pace of growth for financial institutions amplifies the need for a flexible cloud-based platform for your business while staying vigilant about evolving security threats that could impact your customers and your reputation. Personalized Cloud Accelerates Your Go-to-Market Speed Legacy financial services companies are adapting while fintechs and startups disrupt the industry to deliver new options for clients. This digital transformation has led to an accelerated rate of transactions and a rapid increase in data sets. As a result, more financial institutions, wealth management firms, and insurance companies are turning to the cloud to help them keep pace with this rapidly evolving industry. Data protection and security, privacy, and compliance remain key concerns for financial services organizations. With ransomware and cyberattacks a constant threat, banking and financial services firms must ensure their clients’ data is safe — or risk financial loss, costly fines, and reputational damage. At the same time, financial institutions must work smarter to drive innovation, improve business processes, compete with new players, and find new market opportunities so they’re not left behind. We help financial services, insurance, and wealth management firms increase their flexibility and accelerate their go-to-market speed while meeting financial industry regulations and compliance obligations. Our personalized financial services cloud environments for banks and insurance companies are designed to achieve SOC2, PCI-DSS, and OSFI B10 regulatory and organizational obligations on public and private cloud platforms, with clear and documented infosec policies for staff and contractors vetted as part of our SOC2 compliance program.

If the network goes down, everything falls apart. We did an analysis and the cost to build out our own team for in-house support was prohibitively higher than to leverage Carbon60 — and they would not have had the standardized methodologies and cohesiveness that Carbon60 brings to the table. They also have deep expertise in our preferred public cloud platform, which simply makes everything easier especially as we look for ways to best leverage microservices and serverless architecture as a whole. We’ve been very happy with Carbon60 and have never looked back.”CTO, national SaaS payment delivery network The Key Benefits of Cloud Computing in the Finance Industry Accelerate Speed to Market Reduce your development cycles and launch new products to meet aggressive timelines and scale up or down to meet demand.
