Network Time Solutions for Financial Regulatory Compliance
Accurate and precise time stamping is required for compliance with financial regulatory mandates such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX), the FTC’s Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), FINRA’s Order Audit Trail System (OATS) and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). In fact, the 2015 European Securities and Markets Authority MiFID II regulations on clock accuracy and granularity in stock trading requires select trading venues to improve order time stamp accuracy to 100 microseconds to UTC with a granularity of 1 microsecond. Microsecond-level time stamp accuracy will be the norm.
Tailored to banks, hedge funds, trading firms and stock exchanges involved in high-speed, low-latency trading, Microsemi provides an ultra-precise end-to-end IP timing synchronization solution at the application layer that far exceeds sub-100 microsecond level accuracy to UTC with 1 microsecond granularity. Microsemi SyncServer® Network Time Servers and bus card products improve time stamp accuracy on archived data, making it possible to optimize algorithms to a higher level of synchronization to improve trading risk management and performance monitoring.
Increasing Security & Accessibility using Power over Ethernet (PoE)Security and accessibility will always be top priorities of any financial institution. Microsemi's PoE midspans can improve security through device scheduling -- automatically powering down Ethernet devices during periods of non-use preventing possible unauthorized access. Further, connecting critical powered devices to a midspan operating on the PowerView Pro power management platform allows remote reboot for increased reliability -- increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of financial institutions.
