Intrusion Inc. (Nasdaq: INTZ) announced today that it entered into a National Reseller Agreement with Compushare allowing for the sale and support of its Compliance Commander Identity Theft Prevention solutions for banks and credit unions.
The Compliance Commander product family includes the highly acclaimed Sentry system used to prevent the loss of customers' unencrypted personal information over the internet and also the Defender system, designed to prevent inappropriate access and/or usage of personal information stored on database and file server systems.
To introduce Compliance Commander, Intrusion and Compushare have teamed together offering qualified banks and credit unions an informative ID Theft assessment report. Compliance Commander Sentry is installed on the financial institution's network for two weeks during which all traffic is monitored. At the end of the two week period, all Sentry alerts are recorded along with the alert details, and are summarized in a detailed assessment report delivered by Compushare engineers to the financial institution's top management.
"Banks and credit unions are coming under increased risks to new forms of network-initiated identity theft vulnerabilities," explained Tom McInerney Compushare's Director of Client Solutions. "With this announcement, Compushare is pleased to offer our valuable Compliance Commander ID Theft assessment report to help qualified banks and credit unions identify and mitigate these on-going data privacy issues."
Compliance Commander Sentry is installed on the financial institution's network, typically next to the perimeter firewall. The system monitors all communications ports and protocols including email and instant messenger communications with attached documents, file transfers, custom and/or unauthorized applications communicating on open ports and much more. Once unencrypted data is detected, Sentry instantly blocks the attempted communication and sends alerts with details about the violations to its web- based management system.
"Compushare's elite-status reputation in the financial services industry and national presence will help Compliance Commander achieve the objective of gaining broader reach in the nearly 18,000 U.S. banks and credit unions," said Eric Gore, Intrusion's VP of worldwide sales.
