ATLANTA, Sept. 6 -- SecureWorks, a leading provider of managed IT security services to over 600 banks and 1,300 clients nationwide, is offering De Novo banks a new turnkey package of Managed IT Security Services at special pricing. De Novo banks are banks in formation or are banks that are within the first two years of opening their doors. SecureWorks' new De Novo security package is one of the first of its kind and was created to help banks protect their customers' assets, identity and data. SecureWorks' Security Services are also extremely helpful as banks prepare for their pre-opening examination (and every exam thereafter) with regard to information security.
"I encourage any new bank or bank in formation to take a look at SecureWorks' new De Novo bank program," said Mike Cote, president & CEO of SecureWorks. "We've come up with a turnkey package that offers new banks top- of-the-line security, professional services, reporting and security training at a very affordable price. SecureWorks protects more financial institutions than any other managed IT security services provider and has helped these financial institutions pass more exams than any other provider. We value our clients and strive to deliver the highest quality customer service in the industry. We use breakthrough technology, an aggressive research team, certified security analysts and round-the-clock monitoring to keep banks' networks and their clients safe."
SecureWorks' De Novo Security Package consists of a bundle of services including:
o Managed Network Intrusion Prevention, 24x7x365
o Managed Firewall, 24x7x365
o Managed VPN Services, 24x7x365
o Professional Services to establish the bank's Corporate Information Security Program using best practices and well-defined templates from hundreds of other banks
o Security Awareness Training
De Novo banks that take advantage of the program receive a 33% discount off of SecureWorks' standard pricing for similar packages. The De Novo discount is only available to banks during their formation and for the two years following the day they open their doors for business. This special pricing will assist a De Novo bank in getting started with the right security and risk mitigation programs in place.
"Putting proper IT security measures in place is an essential component for any new bank because they are charged with protecting their customers' assets and private information," said Cote. "SecureWorks would like to be the security organization to enable banks to do this with confidence, certainty and full regulatory compliance."
