How Runecast Future-Proofs Financial Institutions

Many financial institutions around the world rely on Runecast for helping the stability and security of their global operations. Runecast customers in the banking/financial sector include de Volksbank, Erste Bank, Raiffeisen Bank, Swedbank, and more.

We feel your pain

Keeping customers in a competitive industry requires proactive, value-added client services that provide a consistent experience across regions and channels – and all of that provided rapidly, with quick time to resolution.

Regulations and compliance are an even bigger challenge, with technology solutions that tend to be scattered across legacy platforms and new applications, with too many systems that barely integrate. Much greater transparency is required before effective processes can be established.

Systems are only as good as the humans behind them, and skill gaps naturally evolve with new technological capabilities. Thus, solutions with little or no learning curve are in high demand, as IT security and operations teams are frequently overwhelmed, reactive at best, and inefficient, unable to work proactively on business-growth drivers.

"Security and risk management leaders continue to be asked to do more with less — facing more demand for service, fast-changing threat landscapes and insufficient technical talent."

And we have your remedy

And we have your remedy

Runecast is an enterprise platform for security compliance, operational efficiency, stability and uptime. In a single dashboard, it provides an out-of-the-box transparent view of your IT infrastructure, revealing not only configuration drift and vulnerabilities (including CVEs and VMSAs) but also vendor best practices alignment and security compliance audits and reporting.

Proving security compliance posture to customers is simple with Runecast’s customizable reporting. Automated security standards audits include CIS Benchmarks, DORA, GDPR, ISO 27001, NIST, vendor guidelines and more. Taking security a step further, Runecast works securely on-premises and even offline (no data needs to leave your organization).

Stay ahead of the game

While standards like GDPR, ISO 27001, and PCI DSS have been in place for a while, EU financial institutions are required to conform to the Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) by January 17, 2025.

In an industry first, as of 18th August 2023, Runecast provides DORA security compliance checks for VMware, ensuring EU financial organizations can prepare their environments to be compliant, and be audit ready when the time comes.

Reduce risk, ensure regulatory compliance, and optimize team efficiency

With Runecast, IT Security and Operations teams get one proactive platform to replace multiple reactive tools. Runecast automates proactive discovery of issues for AWS, Azure, GCP, Kubernetes, VMware, Windows and Linux. Other helpful audits are also built-in, such as Best Practices for vSphere on Nutanix and both SAP HANA and Pure Storage on vSphere.

Runecast deploys in minutes, is simple to use, and our customers report between 75-90% reduction in troubleshooting time due to Runecast revealing critical issues proactively and showing exactly which to prioritize (with remediation steps).

Reduce risk, ensure regulatory compliance, and optimize team efficiency

"Our main goal is to serve our customers with a high-end, feature-rich and robust electronic banking environment. With Runecast we can now proactively prevent outages on the systems that provide that environment."
