Jack Henry & Associates, a provider of data processing services for financial institutions, has launched Gladiator Enterprise Security Monitoring solution, which was developed by Gladiator Technology, the ProfitStars solution that operates as a managed security services provider for financial institutions.
The first phase of the Enterprise Security Monitoring (ESM) service expands Gladiator’s information security monitoring and reporting capabilities to include Jack Henry & Associates’s core banking applications and IBM Power. This new service establishes Gladiator ESM as the only security monitoring solution that is fully automated, integrated with the core system, and supported with a 24/7/365 monitoring service, said Jack Henry & Associates.
According to Jack Henry & Associates, Gladiator ESM is expected to generate tangible benefits for diverse financial institutions by proactively protecting them from costly security threats that could interrupt business operations, enabling immediate responses to the new security-related issues and trends, and supporting compliance with the related regulatory mandates with real-time monitoring, immediate notification, and comprehensive reporting on key events occurring in their core software systems.
Danny Johnston, group president of Gladiator Technology, said: Today, financial institutions recognize the need for a more comprehensive suite of services to protect both their customers’ personal information and their reputations. As regulatory and compliance expectations continue to escalate, financial institutions will need to implement monitoring services from a proactive perspective, and our ESM solution does just that. The goal of ESM is to provide security alerts to Jack Henry & Associates’s clients in real-time – 24x7x365 – and to provide reports that support the related regulatory guidelines.
