MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Skyport Systems, a leading secure hyper-converged infrastructure provider for the hybrid enterprise, today announced that it has been selected by American National Bank to secure its critical server infrastructure and improve compliance with the latest cybersecurity guidelines.
“Skyport’s unique offering provides a cloud-managed, hyper-converged appliance with security built in to make networks more secure, more cost-effective and easier to manage compared with traditional solutions.”
As a national bank, American National Bank is subject to regular examinations by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), a division of the U.S. Department of the Treasury. These examinations follow the guidelines set forth by the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), which closely monitors security infrastructure to ensure that banks are poised to mitigate risks. American National Bank realized the need to better protect its critical infrastructure from cyber threats and partnered with Skyport Systems to deploy Skyport’s flagship product, SkySecure—a cloud-managed, hyper-converged appliance with security built in.
"When we needed to comply with the strictest cybersecurity guidelines, we looked at building our own solution. However, I quickly realized how much time, resources, and expertise it would require to create a secure system,” said Richard Kalin, Senior Vice President, Technology Officer for American National Bank. “When I came across Skyport Systems, I found that SkySecure could give American National Bank a complete solution with all the hardware, software, analytics, and services to help me meet cybersecurity requirements and guidelines. Deploying SkySecure made it easy for us to manage our network while improving our security posture.”
Using Skyport System’s SkySecure, American National Bank was able to easily comply with industry-mandated security regulations and adhere to industry best-practices for securing their infrastructure. Since deploying the Skyport SkySecure system, American National Bank can isolate and secure its critical infrastructure, making its network not only more secure but also more cost-effective and easy to manage compared to traditional solutions.
“We are honored that American National Bank has entrusted Skyport Systems with their needs,” said Art Gilliand, Chief Executive Officer of Skyport Systems. “Skyport’s unique offering provides a cloud-managed, hyper-converged appliance with security built in to make networks more secure, more cost-effective and easier to manage compared with traditional solutions.”
