GuardiCore, a leader in internal data centre security and breach detection, today announced that Santander Brasil, the largest subsidiary of Santander Group, has selected GuardiCore’s Centra Security Platform to provide advanced data centre security.
Santander Brasil is the fifth largest commercial bank in Brazil with about 36 million customers; it operates in all segments of financial markets, with a network of 3,420 branches. Located in Campinas, its data centre is the first Tier IV certified in Brazil.
“Brazil is a very competitive market and we need to have the latest security technology to protect our customer’s data and be ahead of our competitors,” said Marino Aguiar, Santander Brasil - CIO. “GuardiCore enables us to enhance our overall data centre security strategy and help our IT security team to avoid today’s advanced threats.”
Santander Brasil uses GuardiCore’s Centra Security Platform to continuously monitor east-west traffic within its virtualised data centre, allowing its IT security team to detect breaches inside the data centre faster, reduce dwell time and block intruders’ lateral movements. The GuardiCore Centra Security Platform is the only security product on the market that provides a single, scalable platform that covers five critical capabilities for effective modern data centre security: flow visualisation, micro-segmentation, breach detection, automated analysis and response.
“We are proud that Santander Brasil has selected GuardiCore to help protect its assets from the critical data centre,” said Pavel Gurvich, co-founder and CEO of GuardiCore. “Our Security Platform Centra is designed specifically for virtualised data centres enabling organisations to keep their sensitive data secure without slowing down the pace of changes in their data centre as business continues to grow.”
