Midwest Bank Increases Protection to Gain Greater Visibility and Control

A locally owned, midwestern bank provides both personal and business banking services through its 7 locations. In operation since 1885, the bank has a vested interest in keeping both its organization and its members safe from the increasing volume of cyber threats. While faced with the same cybersecurity issues and regulatory compliance issues as larger financial institutions, the bank must protect its network and members while ensuring auditing and compliance with fewer resources— specifically, a 3-person IT team.

Upon learning about ThreatBlockr, the bank CEO suggested the IT team deploy the ThreatBlockr platform in front of the existing firewall, as part of an additional layer of protection for their defense-in-depth security strategy. With ThreatBlockr, he felt that he would be able to leverage ThreatBlockr’s 30M+ out-of-box threat indicators to prevent known bad actors from targeting them by stopping them before they hit the bank’s firewall.
