03 October 2012  |  1596 views  |  0 Source: ProfitStars

Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (JKHY) is a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry. Its ProfitStars® division introduced today Gladiator Advanced Malware Protection™.

This new layer of malware defense is capable of blocking sophisticated malware threats, including downloads, unsafe website redirects, command and control activity, and phishing links. In conjunction with Gladiator's Security Research department and industry-leading partners in DNS security and threat intelligence, Advanced Malware Protection gives financial institutions the ability to pass all domain name system (DNS) requests through Gladiator's secure cloud-based DNS system. All requests are analyzed in real-time for fraud patterns, malware, and data-stealing risks before connections are allowed to send or receive data.

Leesa Anderson, chief technology officer of Georgia-based State Bank of Cochran, commented, "It is well known that current anti-virus technologies no longer provide sufficient protection from malware. Gladiator understands that this is a concern to its customers because a financial institution's reputation and success relies on its security standards. We have been very pleased with Gladiator's continued development of new solutions, such as Advanced Malware Protection, that provide additional layers of protection for our customers' sensitive information."

Advanced Malware Protection is fully integrated with the Gladiator Security Research department's threat intelligence feeds and its Internet Threat Watch List (ITWL) database. There are currently more than 4.4 million hostile hosts being flagged by the ITWL, with more than 600,000 confirmed malicious connections being reviewed and blocked each month.

Matt Riley, group president of Gladiator, said, "Gladiator Advanced Malware Protection provides banks and credit unions of all sizes with 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week protection from cyber criminals hosting malicious content. With approximately 70,000 new malware programs created daily, it is a challenge for financial institutions to stay ahead of new developments. Now, they can rely on us with an easily accessible cloud platform."
