Today’s EPP (Endpoint Protection Platform) technologies used to protect endpoints, using preventive approach, are necessary, but not always funcional. Constantly evolving threat landscape fueled rise of new defense model, so called „Endpoint Detection and Response“ (EDR).

At the beginning of this year, Directive EU on payment services in the Internal market (PSD2) began to apply. Its aim is to introdu-ce a new model of communication between the bank and its clients, which brings about the emergence of so-called third parties. They get permission to access bank accounts via the Internet. The Czech Banking Association has facilitated the creation of a common standard for open banking. Through the data interface of banks, the third parties will provide banking services to clients with the primary responsibility for settling payments remaining on the client's bank. If the bank performs the implementa-tion of both the data interface and the security concept correctly, the whole system will operate safely. Therefore, it is necessary to pay close attention to security, especially communication. Banks need to know who allows access to their systems.
