Financial institutions rely heavily on secure, highly available networks to deliver their many applications and services to customers, employees, and other users.
Internal business initiatives and external regulations are adding to infrastructure requirements.
- Regulatory compliance - Many different local, national, and international regulations require strict controls governing the delivery and use of financial data.
- Network and data center consolidation - Natural growth, mergers, and acquisitions result in multiple, independent networks and data centers, which are difficult and expensive to manage, and inadequate for changing application requirements.
- Cost control - Changing technologies, proliferating services and branches, and expanding regulations increase CapEx and OpEx, pressuring profits and customer responsiveness.
Financial institutions worldwide use Juniper Networks industry-leading IP solutions to upgrade their networks to meet these new requirements. Our pragmatic approach provides layered intelligence that improves application security, reliability, and performance, while preserving an institution's existing investment.

Secure Financial Services Networks
The networks of financial institutions are evolving to meet new business requirements in the areas of compliance, consolidation, and cost control.
Juniper Networks works with financial institutions worldwide to implement changes in their networks, as required by business initiatives. Our foundation for secure and assured networking is the Enterprise Infranet, an IP infrastructure that controls traffic across the entire network by coordinating network, application, and endpoint intelligence. Enterprise Infranets operate as a service layer on top of the existing infrastructure, meeting new business requirements while preserving prior network investments.
Retail banks provide customers with an essential physical presence to an increasingly virtual world. To be effective in this role, branches must optimize available WAN links to enable a broader range of applications, leverage existing core systems, and share people and other resources. The WAN Acceleration platform integrates key WAN application performance technologies to address bandwidth, latency, and contention issues, ensuring optimal application flows.
