The financial industry is very demanding in its expectations of IT infrastructure. In the first place, it is a highly regulated service. The requirements of the Croatian National Bank establish a basic level of expectations regarding the security and confidentiality of data, and are accompanied by the international standards such as PCI-DSS or Basel II. Additionally, the financial industry has high expectations when it comes to the availability of its own services, which puts further focus on the importance of redundancy and the expected level of support.
In this context, a professional data centre focused exclusively on features such as security and availability is the ideal solution for financial institutions. This is especially true if the data centre already owns security certificates such as ISO 27001, which enables it to take over part of the burden of tracking changes in regulation, leaving financial institution with more resources for competing in the market.
