Catskill Hudson Bank Achieves High Security Standards with Help from Tenable Network Security
April 26, 2016
Next-generation vulnerability management and analytics from Tenable Network Security help Catskill Hudson Bank deliver on cybersecurity promises and keep customer data safe
Tenable Network Security®, Inc., a global leader transforming security technology for the business needs of tomorrow, announced today that Catskill Hudson Bank upgraded its cybersecurity program with next-generation vulnerability management and analytics from Tenable, earning off-the-chart internal and external audit scores.
As a financial services institution dedicated to helping its customers grow their businesses, Catskill Hudson undergoes frequent and rigorous compliance audits from numerous governing bodies including the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and New York State Department of Financial Services (NYSDFS). They also need to comply with major regulatory guidance including Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
Just months before a major audit, Catskill Hudson IT security realized that the vulnerability management product recently purchased from a Tenable competitor was failing to provide the right level of security assurance to meet the high standards the security team measures itself against. That’s when Catskill Hudson turned to Tenable and its comprehensive next-generation vulnerability management solution to provide the critical visibility and context needed to meet financial services industry compliance requirements.
“We knew the vulnerability management software we previously purchased was not going to meet our security and business needs as soon as it began flagging an unusual number of false positives in our regular security reports,” said Ted Tomita, senior vice president and chief technology officer, Catskill Hudson Bank. “For Tenable to step up and help us to not only defend our network, but also earn a perfect audit score before we officially signed a contract as a paying customer says a lot about the quality of their products and their people."
Soon after earning a flawless audit score with help from Tenable, Catskill Hudson officially became a Tenable customer, replacing the previous solution and gaining complete visibility into security and compliance status for the full Catskill Hudson IT environment. Advanced analytics, flexible reporting and customizable security dashboards also allowed Tomita to design security reports aligned with strategic business objectives like GLBA compliance, giving Tomita and his team the ability to provide context for high-level security and compliance discussions with non-technical executives using language they understand.
“At Catskill, our goal is to build one of the most advanced security networks in the banking industry, and Tenable is helping us make that goal a reality,” said Tomita. “They’ve become a voice of truth for what’s happening on our network, providing that additional layer of insight we needed to hold ourselves accountable and to validate the success of our security program to our board of directors.”
