Finance and Capital Markets Leadership

Finance Industry Expertise

Keysight has sales and sales support presence in all major financial centers around the world including Chicago, New York, London, Paris, Frankfurt, Singapore, Hong Kong-China, Tokyo and Sydney. These sales staff have years of experience at selling to financial services customers and understand the particular requirements and operating environment of the finance and capital markets industry.

We are also members and active participants in financial industry and trade bodies such as STAC Research, American Bankers Association, UK Finance and FISD. This gives us a deep insight into the particular regulatory and technical challenges facing the financial industry.

Regulatory Compliance

Be it MiFID II in Europe, SEC in the US or local regulators around the world, the finance sector is one of the most regulated industries in the world. We can help financial institutions meet demanding compliance obligations in a variety of ways:

  • Use taps to make an identical copy of every single trade or transaction and act as the absolute truth in the event of a compliance challenge
  • Use packet brokers to timestamp packets and demonstrate timing of trades
  • Use TradeVision to measure latency and demonstrate compliance with best execution requirements
  • Use BreakingPoint products to prove cyber security tools are hardened against DDoS attacks

Fix Market Feed Issues Fast

Model Financial "What Ifs"

Modeling "what ifs" is a key part of a successful financial instituition — be it real time trading infrastructure, a retail banking application or a back office banking system

  • What if you experience lots of multicast gaps on my real time market feed — what happens to yout overall response times and profitability?
  • What if you expand to a new geographical area — what happens to you retail banking user experience if there is an extra 5 mSec network delay?
  • What if your network starts dropping packets — can you rely on the audit trail?

Our Network Emulator II is designed to allow network and IT Engineers to explore "what ifs" and see the impact of network impairment on real life financial applications

Test Your Banking Security Strength

Financial institutions are a high value target for cyber criminals. Understanding the vulnerability and susceptibility of IT infrastructure is a key part of risk reduction.

Challenge your security solutions from every angle to reduce your risk. Understand user experience from application to protocol, network performance to connections, user load to traffic-type scalability.

Ensure attack readiness. Train to think like attackers and know exactly how to respond, with security attacks and heavy traffic loads during beta testing and pre-production.

The Need for Speed

With high frequency trading, nano seconds matter, and so passive optical fiber taps offer a great way of monitoring network performance.
