Cranston, Rhode Island (PressExposure) June 16, 2009 -- Headquartered in Columbus, Indiana, Centra Credit Union is committed to providing the highest levels of security across their business operations including data and device security. Centra Credit Union selected the modular-based StormShield security product from one of the leading Midwestern resellers, Matrix Global Partners.
âIt was clear that Norb Adrian and the IT team at Centra Credit Union were very serious about providing a high level of data and device security for protecting their members and financial information. From our experience we knew that StormShield would provide Centra with tremendous value while also minimizing the disruption to the employeesâ normal business operations,â said Robert Foley of Matrix, based in Indianapolis.
The StormShield Security Suite provides Centra Credit Union with a single console for controlling and auditing all security services including collaborative, enforceable control of security policies as well as host intrusion prevention, desktop firewalling, anti-virus and anti-spyware, and application control.
The same StormShield implementation also met the needs of Centraâs new security projects through a single client, covering device control and file-based encryption.
Mr. Adrian added, âWe did our due diligence to identify and evaluate numerous options, only to find that most of them were after-thought bundles that left gaps in protection, control, and policy enforcement. We are looking forward to working with StormShield and Matrix to continue to provide the best security possible for protecting our membersâ information."
