Earlier, the Pakistani bank used security solutions from different vendors. JS Bank replaced these vendors in phases with the assistance of Fortinet.
JS Bank will benefit from Fortinet’s FortiGate systems from features, specifications, competitive pricing, low total cost of ownership (TCO) and tangible return on investment (ROI). Imran Soomro, CIO of JS Bank, is happy after deploying Fortinet security solutions as it ensured RoI.
JS Bank, which has 4 business units focusing on retail and consumer banking, treasury, corporate and commercial banking and investment banking, has a network of 238 branches in 122 cities across Pakistan.
Fortinet’s FortiGate will secure infrastructure of JS Bank and customer data from external attacks, and previously relied on standalone firewalls for security. The bank will enhance the security at each of its physical locations, of its web-connected assets.
“We wanted to deploy IDS/IPS solutions on each network segment (core, internet, extranet etc.) to secure our infrastructure, data and financial applications, specifically internet banking and home remittance,” said Imran Soomro, chief information officer of JS Bank.
JS Bank has deployed Fortinet solutions across its different locations including FortiGate-800C in HA at its Core Data Center, FortiGate-310B in HA at the Internet Edge, FortiGate-600C in HA at its head office, FortiGate-800C at its Disaster Recovery Core and Internet Edge, along with FortiGate-40C and 60D for its large and small medium branch office operations.
