Related Topics

Options has partnered with Observable Networks, a specialist in security analytics, to provide dynamic endpoint modelling for client networks.

Observable’s Dynamic Endpoint Modelling analyses all network endpoint devices in order to help identify early-stage indicators of suspicious behaviour and potential security vulnerabilities.
Observable Networks, which is headquartered in St Louis, Missouri, is an emerging leader of network security technology and advanced threat detection services that identify compromised and misused networked devices currently escaping detection by network security tools. Observable’s endpoint modelling technology includes a cloud-based service platform incorporating automated security analytics and real-time traffic sensors to continuously model all devices on networks of any size, all the time.
The partnership has already seen the Observable solution deployed with three global hedge funds currently leveraging Options’ managed technology platform, Core. Core is a completely outsourced business technology solution, encompassing all aspects of financial sector technology that provides a robust and resilient technology foundation. The Core platform blends security, regulatory compliance, business communication and best practice cloud, desktop and mobile technology.
Bryan Doerr, Observable Networks CEO, says: “We are excited to be part of Options’ managed platform solution. As network threats have continued to evolve and technology trends like encryption continue to make legacy network security solutions obsolete, it is imperative for IT infrastructure managers and solution providers to invest their solutions with modern security capabilities. In choosing Observable’s endpoint modelling, Options is making a commitment to its customers to provide great security alongside the other great services available via their ‘Core’ offering.”
Nigel Kneafsey (pictured), Options founder and CEO, says: “Options has been delivering financial technology as a service for more than 20 years. Our platform has evolved alongside the needs of our clients and this is particularly true in the case of network security. As such, we continue to invest in the leading security-related technologies in order to provide client firms with bulletproof, enterprise-grade infrastructure. As we enter 2016, the issue of cybersecurity continues to loom large for CTOs right across the sector and the partnership with Observable is just another example of our efforts to provide continued peace of mind to our clients.”
