Financials - Industry Solutions

For centuries securing financial resources meant thick concrete, heavy steel, and armed guards. Today, financial institutions are far more concerned about cyber criminals that can't be seen. It's no surprise that institutions have embraced Ribbon's focus on securing communications, with end-to-end encryption as well as analytics to spot issues. However, security is just one aspect of Ribbon's solutions.

Insightful Analytics for Campus Networks


Effectively Monitor and Proactively Respond to Threats

The Ribbon Analytics platform empowers educational institutions to effectively monitor and respond to cyberattacks, fraud, and network operational issues. It’s a virtualized solution that quickly and easily integrates with new and existing real-time communications investments. Ribbon Protect, a component of the Ribbon Analytics platform, receives information from various network elements – such as Ribbon SBCs, cloud communication services, and other network devices - and analyzes them for various communications-related security breaches and quality of service issues.

The Ribbon Analytics portfolio provides an end-to-end network view, including call flows and service quality issues. It can use quantitative communications network information to make automated security enforcement decisions, helping protect the network, even when no one is watching. Using Ribbon Protect, these decisions can be pushed to any “enforcer” anywhere in the network
