BankOnIT Reveals Hidden Networks

Hidden Networks, an evolutionary step in helping banks protect their customer data from within their network, is the newest component provided as part of BankOnIT’s Bankers Private Cloud® service.

You can’t attack something you can’t see

BankOnIT’s Hidden Networks works to hide each workstation, laptop and other devices on the inside of your network. If someone or something gains access to your internal network it will appear to them as if nothing is there. At the same time, your employees are able to work as they always have.

Cyber criminals look for vulnerabilities in your bank’s network not only from the outside but, if they gain access, from the inside as well. BankOnIT’s Hidden Networks effectively eliminates the ability to see what is on your bank’s network from inside the network.

Most IT firms see defending against a threat as an opportunity to sell you something. At BankOnIT, these improvements are provided at no extra cost.

The Hidden Networks component of the Threat Mitigation Shield is automatically turned on and included at no extra charge for clients of BankOnIT’s Bankers Private Cloud® service.

The BankOnIT pricing model is unique within the industry; most IT firms see defending against a threat as an opportunity to sell you something. At BankOnIT, these improvements are provided at no extra cost.

Other firm’s business models are based on continually selling you hardware and having an hourly support component or carving out projects and events such as malware response. When a new threat arises they profit by selling you a “solution” or by selling you hours needed to clean up after the event.

For years, bankers have utilized a layered approach to physical security. Locks on the doors, alarms, cameras, dual control combinations and time locks on the vault, and separate cash lockers within the vault. BankOnIT takes a comparable approach with securing the bank’s technology network. BankOnIT keeps adding more layers of security to protect against the rapidly evolving complexity and number of threats banks are facing. The Hidden Networks component of the Threat Mitigation Shield is just the most recent example of this.

Risk associated with rapidly evolving technology continues to increase. BankOnIT client banks are better able to defend themselves against the rapidly increasing number of cybersecurity risks because of BankOnIT’s Bankers Private Cloud® and its continuously upgraded service with components such as Hidden Networks, helping to prevent, deter and mitigate the growing number of cyber threats.
