Chicago IT Services for the Banking and Financial Sectors

As a financial services organization, you know how much you depend on technology to conduct your day-to-day business operations. That is why it’s so critical for you to invest in a dedicated IT infrastructure that is able to meet the demands of your staff and your customers. Some financial services organizations have the resources and staff to meet their demands in-house, while others outsource some or all of their operations.

CEU Technologies revolutionizes critical activities with easy-to-integrate solutions. With a combination of people and IT services for finance, risk and compliance, and beyond, we help Chicago financial services organizations transform and build long-term value.

Proactive Network Monitoring 

It isn’t enough to have robust hardware and applications to create a reliable infrastructure. The world of IT is shifting and new threats are being introduced every day. Devices and applications are being updated regularly and are being designed to require more advanced systems to fully operate. With the adjustments that need to be made, your hands are always full as you inspect your solutions to ensure they are properly updated.

CEU Technologies ensures that your network runs as it should, with minimal downtime.

No network is error-free. To minimize the risk of IT disruptions and costly downtime, our IT team will monitor your network and its components, including:

  • The highest level of network traffic your system can maintain
  • Your business-critical systems and their capabilities
  • User profiles and security permissions

By partnering with CEU Technologies, your efficiency and productivity will improve, allowing you to fulfill your objectives with minimal disruptions.

Network Security Services

While you already have a dedicated IT staff, they are likely not able to provide all the needed services around the clock. Splitting up your resources will not be enough because your staff will have even more difficulties meeting objectives with less time, decreasing their efficiency and productivity. CEU Technologies offers network security services, such as advanced threat protection and intrusion detection. With our network security services, you can have peace of mind in knowing that a skilled and experienced team is working to detect weaknesses in your network.

Server and Application Monitoring

Financial services organizations would not be able to operate without servers and applications. If your organization experiences any period of downtime with the server or applications, you will not be able to provide your services. To ensure this does not happen, we proactively monitor your entire ecosystem to ensure that your components are always functioning.

  • We monitor for alerts, errors, and potential issues.
  • Through process management, we are able to speed up the fault mitigation process.

CEU Technologies’ Compliance and Cybersecurity Solutions

For organizations in the financial sector, technology must be compliant with industry rules and regulations. To ensure the success of financial institutions in Chicago, we have designed our IT solutions with knowledge of industry regulations, compliance, and security.

A poor IT infrastructure can not only lead to security risks, but it will stall productivity for the entire organization. Not every network solution is designed to meet the growing demands of your business operations. Financial institutions that have remote and hybrid work models must have a robust infrastructure that can support external access with no problems, including the protection that is needed to mitigate the risk of external threats. Our cybersecurity consultants are ready to guide you in the deployment of these systems.

Protect your organization from cyber threats with a layered approach to security, strengthened by our comprehensive cybersecurity solutions and consulting. It’s no longer a question of if you will be targeted by cybercriminals, but when. Protect your networks, your sensitive data, and your reputation with our cybersecurity solutions.
