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 today announced the availability of Gladiator® Incident Alert™ for breach detection and notification.

Today's threat landscape consists of complex compromises and breaches that continue to evolve in scope and frequency.

Studies report that only about half of malware is detected on the first day of exposure. It is not enough for financial institutions to have a strong firewall; network traffic must also be examined regularly to detect unknown malware.

ProfitStars developed Gladiator Incident Alert as a scalable means to identify deep-level threats that may go unseen through traditional protection mechanisms such as firewall prevention and endpoint security. The solution, leveraging "sandbox" technology, obtains detailed information about malware behavior and alerts the financial institution of suspicious activity with detailed warnings that enable quick assessment and response.

Jerreld Underwood, senior vice president of technology at Vision Bank, commented, "A bank's security consists of many layers of defense, and Gladiator Incident Alert is exactly what we were looking for to add additional measures. Monitoring and alerts for network traffic issues are part of a holistic security plan. It brings a peace of mind to know that we're taking all of the proper precautions and are able to do so through a trusted partner like ProfitStars."

The combination of Gladiator's threat intelligence with sandbox file testing creates an added layer of protection to recognize zero-day and advanced persistent threats. With this technology, even highly targeted and evasive malware can be recognized. In addition, Gladiator's team of skilled engineers provides around-the-clock assistance if needed.

Russ Bernthal, president of ProfitStars, said, "In order to keep pace with the rapid digitization of consumers' lives, enterprise records, and the sophisticated threat landscape, financial institutions must implement an additional layer of defense beyond traditional malware protection. Adding Gladiator Incident Alert as part of a comprehensive risk management process helps prevent damaging security breaches by reducing the time to discovery. Together, we can work to detect increasingly sophisticated and persistent threats and strengthen defenses with a more in-depth strategy."

Incident Alert does not depend on a particular core or another software application. The solution can be fully integrated into Gladiator CoreDEFENSE Managed Security Services™.
