Data Center Inc. (DCI), the privately-owned developer of iCore360® core banking software and related technologies for community financial institutions nationwide, announced today they will be partnering with RESULTS Technology, the award-winning technology services firm specializing in the banking industry to provide a robust cybersecurity tool to its banking clients.
The move comes after DCI learned how a new RESULTS cybersecurity tool, Invictasm VPS, helped provide their clients with additional protection during a dramatic nationwide increase in cyberthreats over the past six months.
“We are always looking for new ways to help further protect our community bank clients from continuous cyberthreats. The RESULTS solution augments our own security measures to protect banks beyond the barriers of DCI.” said Sencer Tasan, DCI CTO. “The RESULTS Invictasm VPS solution goes beyond the basics to provide enterprise-level protection that community banks can afford.”
RESULTS’ Invictasm VPS (Invicta is Latin for Invincible, VPS stands for Vulnerability Protection System), is a breach detection service that is unique in cybersecurity industry. Most cybersecurity tools are antivirus tools that focus primarily on the actions performed by executable files and heuristic-based detections. Invictasm VPS is different because it hunts for vulnerabilities and unaddressed techniques hackers use to maintain access to their victims, specifically, Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs).
APTs are particularly harmful and hard to detect. Once on a network, they can sit undetectable for months, waiting for the right time to start harvesting sensitive information. When Invictasm VPS discovers an APT, it immediately isolates the threat, locks down the hardware, creates alerts and remediation recommendations.
“More than 70% of all cyber security incidents today are the result of internal security issues that no firewall or anti-virus could have prevented” said Mike Gilmore, RESULTS Technology CTO. “Invicta VPS enables us to fight hackers head-to-head while protecting our clients from downtime, costly cleanup and damaged reputations.”
In addition to detecting APTs, Invictasm VPS looks for suspicious activity, such as changes to the network registry, changes to permissions and administrative accounts, and changes to network configurations. All of these changes are techniques hackers use to bring down small businesses that traditional cybersecurity software does not detect.
Angelina Savings Bank in Lufkin Texas has been using Invictasm VPS since 2019. “Our last exam report was the best the bank has ever had and we are thrilled! The examiner was so impressed with Invictasm VPS. He said this was a “Big-Bank” product,” said Peggy Thomas, Chief Operations Officer.
Invicta VPS was created to easily integrate into existing business networks and does not require a cybersecurity expert to maintain or monitor.
“Invicta VPS helps banks fill important gaps in their own network security with an easy and affordable solution,” said Sarah Fankhauser, President and CEO, adding, “We think banks can trust RESULTS Technology’s combination of expertise, value and customer focus to deliver cybersecurity that is reliable, affordable and compliant.”
Patrick Murphy, President of RESULTS Technology commented, “DCI has a long and admired reputation in the core bank technology sector and we’re excited to work with them to help community banks stay safe from cyberattacks.”
Invicta VPS was recently hand-selected for inclusion into Bank Director’s “FinXTech Connect” – a directory of vetted fintech companies that is made available to members of the Independent Community Bankers Association.
