Safe Systems Celebrates 25 Years of IT and Security Services for Community Financial Institutions

Alpharetta, Ga., February 15, 2018 – This year marks the 25th anniversary of Safe Systems, a national provider of fully-compliant IT and security services for community banks and credit unions. Since 1993, Safe Systems has helped community financial institutions significantly decrease costs, increase IT performance, enhance cybersecurity and improve their compliance postures. During its first quarter century, the company has worked with more than 600 financial institutions and has managed more than 20,000 network devices.

“Because we’ve worked with financial institutions for so long, we see what’s coming down the pipeline and have learned how to anticipate trends,” said Danny Johnson, CEO and Chairman of Safe Systems. “We have a unique perspective into what our clients need, oftentimes before it becomes obvious. I feel this has helped us to be more innovative in our approaches to technology, security, and compliance-centric solutions.”

Safe Systems’ CEO Danny Johnston and President Darren Bridges met while working at Coin Banking Systems, where they installed some of the first networks for community banks. After a successful career at the company, Johnston branched out to start Safe Systems, Inc., and Bridges later joined him to take the lead on engineering and operations for the growing organization.

When the company first started, there were not many network technology vendors focused on community financial institutions. By leveraging their extensive knowledge of community banks and credit unions, Safe Systems has been able to provide its customers with the best technology solutions available, all tailored to their unique needs and environments. The company understands the complexity that financial institutions face in managing the constant evolution of technology and compliance and works to simplify IT processes and ensure regulatory requirements are met or exceeded.

“We’ve been able to consistently sustain a high degree of customer service over the last 25 years by paying close attention to our customers’ pain points and always keeping their needs at the top of our priority list,” said Darren Bridges, president of Safe Systems. “Our talented employees work to build strong relationships with our clients and in looking toward the future, I know we’ll be solving problems for them that don’t even exist yet. I’m excited to help Safe Systems continue to grow and prosper as we enter the next 25 years.”
