Shield will join an ecosystem of Independent Software Vendor (ISV) partners to help offer financial services customers a range of capabilities built on IBM Cloud for Financial Services.

The Shield RegTech platform was designed to support financial firms. It automates and orchestrates the complete eComms compliance lifecycle, delivering all elements of capture, correlation, data enrichment, analytics, proactive and preventive detection. Shield’s solution is designed to empower numerous functions within regulated organizations, from departments such as surveillance and monitoring, risk and governance, forensic and control, all the way through to conduct and management.

Eran Noam, VP Global Sales and Business Development at Shield commented, “Shield is excited to be working with IBM to help create a secured financial services ecosystem where banks, ISV partners and SaaS providers can transact with confidence.
