In today’s retail banks, understanding risk is crucial. Whether it’s lending a mortgage, approving consumer credit cards, or managing funds, the ability to identify, calculate, and respond to different types of risk can set firms apart. Cloud computing and laptop virtualization are important technologies that will change how risk is computed and delivered.
For an in-depth look at current trends to consider when developing a risk management strategy, take a look at From Frameworks to Architecture.
The power to properly manage risk
Keeping today’s IT professionals in mind, Intel has developed powerful processors and cloud computing solutions that enable banks to manage risk in a secure computing environment.
Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family
Providing world-record performance, the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family can quickly process large amounts of data to help calculate risk. Meanwhile, advanced security features such as Intel® AES New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) and Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT) protect business-critical assets and improve cloud security.
Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series
The Intel Xeon processor 5600 series automatically adjusts server performance according to application demand, maximizing both energy cost savings and performance. Also, Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) provides efficient, secure, and flexible virtualization capabilities.
Keeping laptops on lockdown
Managing risk and protecting against fraud involves protecting a bank’s physical assets. Using Intel® Anti-Theft Technology (Intel® AT), company laptops powered by Intel’s latest processors can disable themselves if they become lost or stolen. When the laptop is recovered, it can be easily reactivated.
