The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is an independent, not-for-profit organization authorized by the U.S. Congress to protect investors by ensuring the securities industry operates fairly. FINRA not only provides basic protections to investors, but ensures that every securities product on the market is tested, qualified and licensed.
According to FINRA.org, "FINRA's mission is to safeguard the investing public against fraud and bad practices. We pursue that mission by writing and enforcing rules and regulations for every single brokerage firm and broker in the United States, and by examining broker-dealers for compliance with our own rules, federal securities laws and rules of the Municipal Securities Rule-making Board."
Additionally, FINRA makes certain that:
- Securities products sold to an investor is appropriate for that investor's needs
- Investors receive complete disclosure about the investment product before purchase
- Every securities product advertisement used is truthful and not misleading
- Every investor receives the basic protections they deserve
FINRA Compliant Security Solutions
SolarWinds MSP (formerly LOGICnow) develops FINRA compliant IT management and security solutions that help MSPs protect and manage customer networks, servers, devices and machines.
In addition to satisfying a host of regulatory compliance requirements, including FINRA, HIPAA and PCI DSS, SolarWinds MSP enables managed service providers to conduct automatic risk assessments to calculate an organization's risk of a data breach (and how much money it will likely cost).
A recent article published by CHANNELe2e had this to say about SolarWinds MSP's security solutions:
Overall, LogicNow is striving to push beyond traditional RMM and security conversations. On the RMM front, the company in January 2016 acquired Mac-MSP — which makes Mac monitoring and management software. And the iScan buyout shifts the security conversation beyond traditional endpoint security and anti-virus, toward far more sophisticated risk assessment, mitigation and cost analysis engagements.
