AcSys Networks empowers LCB Finance with network Security and infrastructure Solutions

In a significant move towards enhancing network security, improving connectivity, and ensuring business continuity, AcSys Networks has implemented a comprehensive suite of solutions for LCB Finance PLC.
This project aims to bolster the capabilities of LCBF, a prominent financial institution in Sri Lanka dedicated to providing accessible financial services, especially to Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs).
LCB Finance PLC (LCBF) has long been committed to supporting the economic growth of suburban and rural areas by focusing on the underserved MSME segment. The company’s core mission is to help MSMEs boost their income levels and create self-employment opportunities. LCBF envisions elevating small and micro-level enterprises to medium-scale by identifying, categorizing MSMEs based on their resources, and offering them tailored credit facilities.

In order to support LCBF in its mission and fortify its IT infrastructure, AcSys Networks meticulously designed and executed a comprehensive suite of solutions that includes:
1. Network Security Enhancement: AcSys Networks deployed state-of-the-art network security solutions to fortify LCBF’s IT defences against cyber threats. With the rising importance of secure financial transactions and data protection, this enhancement is crucial in safeguarding the interests of LCBF’s customers and the institution itself.
2. SD-WAN Implementation: The adoption of Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) has allowed LCBF to streamline its network management, improve connectivity, and reduce operational costs. This technology ensures seamless communication across multiple branches, enhancing customer experience and service delivery.
3. Endpoint Protection: Endpoint security is a critical component of LCBF’s IT strategy. AcSys Networks has implemented advanced endpoint protection solutions, safeguarding all devices connected to the network against malware, phishing attacks, and other cyber threats.

4. Server Backup and Disaster Recovery (DR) Solution: In today’s digital age, data is invaluable. AcSys Networks designed a robust backup and DR solution for LCBF to ensure the uninterrupted operation of critical systems and data recovery in case of unforeseen disasters. This not only safeguards customer data but also helps maintain business continuity.
Suranga Senevirathna, Head of IT at LCB Finance PLC, expressed his satisfaction with the partnership, stating, “AcSys Networks’ exceptional expertise in network security, coupled with their proactive implementation of innovative solutions, has played a pivotal and transformative role in fortifying our institution’s IT infrastructure against a diverse array of cyber threats, ultimately safeguarding sensitive data and bolstering the invaluable trust of our customers.”

Ramila Bandara, Assistant Manager – IT at LCB Finance PLC, added, Through the strategic implementation of SD-WAN and the establishment of a robust backup and disaster recovery solution, AcSys Networks has not only greatly elevated our operational efficiency but also empowered us to serve our customers with heightened speed and unwavering reliability, a mission-critical feat in our endeavour to uplift and empower MSMEs.
