Solution Brief

Always On for Financial Services

Maximize availability for high-volume transactions and multi-channel financial services delivery

In today’s financial services industry, faster payments demand platform availability well outside the traditional overnight settlement window. Micro-second trades, global online banking and mobile transactions must be enabled 24/7/365. Credit and debit card authorizations require real-time transaction analysis and fraud detection. There is simply no time—day or night—for systems to be down.

Key Benefits

  • Protect processing, transactional and administrative applications with an always-on operating environment
  • Detect potential problems and proactively take action before downtime becomes an issue
  • Scale easily to accommodate network and transaction growth
  • Meet compliance requirements for data integrity and reliability
  • Leverage 24/7/365 global support

That’s why financial services companies around the world, from credit unions and banks to securities firms and stock exchanges, rely on Stratus Technologies.
