In today’s digital world, we no longer have to go to a branch office or ATM machine to do the majority of our banking. For the most part, consumers can manage all bank transactions from the comfort of their home on mobile devices, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, virtual banking has the potential to be so much more than just cashing checks.

So here’s the story. A nation-state attacks a technology company, leveraging a backdoor in a piece of software to infect computers. Then using the infected machines as jumping-off points to move laterally across what was previously thought to be a secure network, the threat actors take aim at targets of interest to the U.S. government. You may think I am talking about the SolarWinds hack.

In today's digital era, the insurance industry faces growing pressure on two fronts. First, firms must meet rising consumer expectations for a more modern, seamless, and convenient way of doing business. This includes unified access across products, a faster claims process, and greater transparency about data security and privacy. Second, established insurers must keep pace with innovations introduced by "insurtechs," including more personalized products, usage-based coverage, increased automation, and the ability to collect and analyze greater volumes of data more quickly.

Legacy Directory solutions were not designed to handle the growing amount of data we see today and, with the introduction of cloud and big data, they are struggling to keep up with demands.
