Mitigating Risks for Financial Trading Systems
Missing an important call during securities trading can be very costly. While most securities are currently traded electronically, fixed income, commodities and currency (FICC) trading is largely based on voice trading utilizing a phone or unified communications platform include Dealerboard or Turret systems. These trading systems and underlying networks have system and security patches that are manuallly tested creating a backlog of patches. Replacing manual testing of these high-leverage systems with tekVizion’s onPOINT can dramatically mitigate risk and reduce the cost while increasing the coverage of testing.
