Click on www.aktia.fi and you’ll see plenty of smiling faces, each one representative of Aktia’s hundreds of thousands of satisfied financial services customers. They could post Marcus Lemström’s photograph there too. Among many tasks, it’s the duty of this IT operations manager to ensure Aktia’s own internal infrastructure is free of security threats―known and unknown. By standardizing on a seamlessly integrated security solution composed of Symantec Endpoint Protection and Symantec Network Access Control, Aktia has proactive protection for its widely geographically-dispersed 850 laptops, desktops, and servers―both on and off the corporate network. The Finnish organization is also able to automate the blocking of non-compliant devices from its network and more easily detect suspicious activities. No wonder Lemström is smiling so much.
