Clients leverage CorvilNet Solution to strengthen Risk Management Function

Corvil, a provider of monitoring and risk mitigation solutions for electronic trading

management by providing additional, independent barriers and check-points against
technology-related hazards.

Trading technology involves highly automated decision making, complex
inter-connectedness and very high data rates. CorvilNet has traditionally been deployed to
help companies manage performance and improve reliability in the trading infrastructure.
Now, trading firms and exchanges have started looking at leveraging Corvil technology as
an independent and parallel monitoring system to validate that trading behavior is within
expected tolerances. Where trading behavior becomes anomalous or unexpected, limits
breached, or any of a wide variety of metrics triggered, emergency processes can be
alerted. This will happen without relying on the self-reporting of problems from the same
erroneously-behaving decision-making components.

The Corvil solution for Technology Risk Management can augment existing measures
already in place in trading organizations with no loss of speed; providing a more complete
system overview and potential to reconcile behavior across complex inter-connected
systems. The more layers of protection an organization implements, the lower the risk of
errors or mistakes leading to material or reputation losses. Crucially it is well
recognized that the greater level of independence between the various layers of
protection, the greater total protection provided.

“Trade technology and operational risk must be managed to avoid financial and
reputational damage,” said Corvil CEO, Donal Byrne. “Our customers need a complete
overview and must understand what is happening throughout their trading infrastructure.
Corvil now offer comprehensive trade monitoring, business level visibility tools and a
consulting service to work hand-in-hand with each customer. This delivers the complete and
comprehensive overview required in today’s trading environment.”
