Safe Systems Expands Security Suite with Rogue Actor Detection and Vulnerability Scanning Solutions

Helps community banks and credit unions safeguard information and increase security layers


Alpharetta, Ga., November 7, 2017Safe Systems, a national provider of fully-compliant IT and security services for community banks and credit unions, announced the addition of two new solutions to its suite of security products: Rogue Actor Detection (RAD) and V-Scan.

Rogue Actor Detection (RAD) serves as an effective “trap,” by deploying decoy data and services onto a financial institution’s network to entice cybercriminals into accessing this false information. Once accessed, a notification is created to alert the financial institution administrator to the unauthorized activity. The institution can then evaluate the alert and remediate the threat or leverage Safe Systems for additional assistance if desired.

V-Scan is a powerful network scanning tool that scans a financial institution’s entire network for vulnerabilities, including both Windows™ and non-Windows based devices and operating systems. The scan produces an exhaustive list of all vulnerabilities that exist on each device and produces customized reports tailored to the institutions’ specific needs. In addition, it provides financial institutions with the proper information and guidance required to successfully meet requirements outlined in the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council’s (FFIEC) Cybersecurity Assessment Tool (CAT).

“With internal threats to the network, it can take an organization up to 100 days to know if they’ve been compromised, and we wanted to minimize the amount of time it took an institution to discern this information,” said Darren Bridges, president of Safe Systems. “It is vitally important for community banks and credit unions to have a strong layered approach to security, but if an attacker is able to bypass the security defenses in place, financial institutions should be able to quickly identify those threats and remediate the issue.“
