MONETT, Mo., July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ:JKHY) is a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry. Its ProfitStars® division announced today that the Gladiator Adaptive Threat Management methodology blocks an average of 20,000 confirmed malicious connections for Gladiator CoreDEFENSE Managed Security Services(TM) clients every day.
Gladiator’s Security Research department analyzes new attack methods to proactively protect Gladiator CoreDEFENSE clients from new security threats. Its Adaptive Threat Management methodology is instrumental in these efforts because it streamlines multiple threat intelligence sources and multifaceted security solutions and applies counter measures to emerging attacks. Once threats are identified, Adaptive Threat Management safeguards are pushed to the entire Gladiator CoreDEFENSE client base which represents more than 800 banks and credit unions.
Adaptive Threat Management’s comprehensive safeguards provide a rapid response to new attack methods by blocking dangerous connections, stopping malware downloads, and preventing communications with known malicious hosts on the Internet. The proactive security controls adapt to the speed at which technology and researchers identify new threats, providing security coverage for many financial institutions before they are impacted.
Matt Riley, group president of Gladiator Technology, said, “Gladiator Adaptive Threat Management protects our clients at an intricate level. Blocking more than 600,000 malicious threats each month enables us to proactively stop incidents in their infancy before our client institutions encounter issues or security breaches.”
Gladiator CoreDEFENSE Managed Security Services include 24/7/365 management, correlation, and monitoring of multiple security layers specifically designed and developed for financial institutions. Its comprehensive security uses a broad-based, multi-layered approach to guard critical data and repel malicious attacks from both outside and inside an institution’s network.
