Superior National Bank - Staying One Step Ahead of the Bad Guys
Visibility is the Key
The mission: expand Superior National Bank’s existing cybersecurity program to proactively defend against fraud and those intent on stealing customer and financial data. The institutions biggest pain point was the lack of visibility into what was happening on the bank’s network due to the rapid adoption of cloud computing and remote working. Having little understanding of what constituted “normal” activity in this new world, how could the bank’s small IT and cyber team monitor for unusual behavior or potentially malicious activity, let alone detect and neutralize an attack like ransomware?

“Running such advanced network defense technology without having to add any staff is where the rubber meets the road for any CIO. It’s not just efficiency now but efficiency as we grow. As the Bank grows, CyGlass will keep getting better at doing what it needs to do.”

Network Defense For Small Teams
CyGlass NDaaS is delivering the network visibility ahead of his expectations, and in a way that is easy and affordable. The physical hardware to monitor the networks of each branch alone would have cost around $220K. CyGlass deployed for less than $40K. CyGlass algorithms learn as operations change and have become more accurate over time.
