Safe Systems Launches Managed Perimeter Defense for Community Banks, Credit Unions


Alpharetta, Ga., November 1st, 2018Safe Systems, a national provider of fully-compliant IT and security services for community banks and credit unions, today announced the availability of its new Managed Perimeter Defense firewall solution. The solution is designed to help financial institutions effectively thwart malicious threats using easy to manage, secure, automated technology with advanced threat mitigation capabilities.

With thousands of threats created every day, it is challenging for community banks and credit unions to keep up with the latest cyber threats and understand the potential impact on the institution. Managed Perimeter Defense deploys powerful machine learning algorithms, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) inspection capabilities, advanced reporting and alerts to help financial institutions detect and combat malicious activity on the network.

By implementing banking-specific feeds that integrate directly into the firewall platform, Safe Systems’ perimeter security solution eliminates the burden of having one or two individuals monitoring new and emerging threats. Having this information helps to quickly detect and resolve critical issues, preventing possible damage to the network. The solution also generates easily configurable and customizable reports to help financial institutions reduce time spent on audit preparation and strengthen their compliance posture.

“Firewalls are a critical part of a financial institution’s security strategy, but they must become smarter and more dynamic to be effective in today’s security environment,” said Darren Bridges, president of Safe Systems. “To help community banks and credit unions better protect their institutions, we developed Managed Perimeter Defense to provide financial institutions with advanced threat detection and mitigation, ensuring a secure IT environment and a better chance of resisting attack.”
