Amidst the recent volatility in global financial markets, the networks of banking, financial services and trading companies are under heightened levels of stress. Their businesses have been subject to increased trading volumes and transactions, spikes in network traffic and load, the need for more advanced analytics, and new methods for trading simulation. Consequently, their underlying network infrastructure requires higher throughput, lower latency, improved network and application performance monitoring, guaranteed network traffic recording and replay, and strengthened cybersecurity.
Napatech SmartNICs are used across a wide range of applications to help financial services companies meet their network demands. They are used to ensure trade accuracy and quality; to improve market data analytics for decision making; to conduct simulations with timing-accurate recording and reply for high-frequency trading algorithms; to measure network and application performance, especially latency; and providing recording and monitoring for improved regulatory compliance, forensics, and cybersecurity.
