Xamin, a leading provider of managed IT services for highly regulated and reputation-sensitive companies, launched today the fourth whitepaper in its five-part series, “Rise of the Remote Workforce: It’s Time to Embrace Mobile & Cloud Computing,” which aims to help financial institutions better understand and implement cloud technologies.
To support the mobile, remote workforce of the future, digital transformation through cloud adoption will be key for financial institutions to achieve better reliability, scalability, security and compliance. With the recent increase in remote and flexible work options, more financial institutions are implementing (or considering a move into) cloud and mobile computing, but may struggle with security and compliance concerns, especially community banks and credit unions.
Addressing these issues directly, Xamin’s latest whitepaper tackles institutions’ main cloud and security concerns, and discusses how the pace of cloud adoption will increase. The whitepaper provides an in-depth analysis into the barriers financial institutions face when moving to the cloud, including staffing challenges as qualified IT professionals can be hard to find and difficult to retain. In fact, 46 percent of firms reported that they lacked basic cloud platform expertise. The paper also offers solutions, best practices and compliance controls, so financial institutions can stay up-to-date with mission-critical security requirements, industry regulations and ensure they are working with SOC-certified technology partners.
“In this part of our whitepaper series we break down the need for new mobile and cloud computing options when employing a remote or flexible workforce,” said Jonathan Smith, President and CEO of Xamin. “As more financial institutions move to the cloud, community banks and credit unions will face inevitable security concerns and roadblocks. Xamin helps design, implement and monitor solutions that ensure on-going compliance and ideal technological positioning, preparing institutions for the rise in the remote workforce.”
