Hypothekarbank Lenzburg AG ramps up networking security without breaking the bank

Hypothekarbank Lenzburg AG is a Swiss bank providing general banking services through its 13 branch offices in Aargau. As for most financial institutions, security is key and due to increased digitalization, a growing priority for Hypothekarbank Lenzburg AG. Keeping financial data safe and secure is also a requirement emphasized by the Basel III regulations, the global framework for regulation, supervision and risk management of the financial sector. To meet the increased need for storage and data replication between different locations the fiber connectivity needed to be expanded. For more secure data transfer between the sites, the networking solution also had to be improved to support data encryption.

Today a new optical fiber networking solution, based on Smartoptics’ offering meets all the networking and security needs of Hypothekarbank Lenzburg AG. A resilient, robust optical network gives the bank the flexibility and scalability needed, at the lowest possible cost.

“The Smartoptics solution gives us the flexibility and scalability we need, at the lowest possible cost. But more importantly, the resilient, robust network allows us to meet the demands of both Basel III and our clients for safe and secure handling of all our financial data.”
