With so many hardware advances, software choices and requirements from your core banking software provider and other banking software vendors, determining what is right for your institution has become more complicated than ever. An IT services provider can help alleviate this stress by evaluating the infrastructure of the bank and eliminating the unnecessary hardware, processes and tasks. This helps with the overall management of the institution by simplifying management needs, reducing ongoing costs and maintenance management.
Selecting who to trust and depend on when deciding to partner with an IT services provider is challenging, especially for community bankers. Many bankers struggle with choosing the right solution that will work with and truly benefit their financial institution.
Smaller community financial institutions can benefit from outsourcing or partnering with a provider who offers network management solutions exclusively tailored for community banks. Having a system in place that offers key features such as patch management, third party patching, antivirus, hardware and software inventory management, vulnerability remediation, and compliance-focused documentation reporting to verify that your financial institution’s network is adhering to your policies and procedures is critical in today’s environment.
The right IT service provider should offer your bank full support for the demands of banking technology and IT regulatory compliance by delivering your institution a solution that documents that your policies and procedures are being followed. A solution provider can help bridge the gap between a financial institutions everyday network administrative functions and the big picture goals of IT compliance and infrastructure planning.
