BOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Crossbeam Systems®, Inc., the leader in unified threat management (UTM) for the world's largest networks, today announced that Scottrade has deployed Crossbeams X-80 Unified Threat Management (UTM) platform to deliver in-depth security across its internal network and protect all customers using its online trading systems.
As one of the nation's leading branch-supported online brokerage firms, Scottrade maintains more than $54 billion in customer assets and conducts an average of 138,000 trades per day on its three online trading platforms.
"It is critical that we protect every customer transaction delivered through our systems," said Grant Bourzikas, director of Information Security and Business Continuity at Scottrade.
