AFS Implements Tenable’s Lightning and Thunder Security Software Suite
Tenable Network Security announces that AFS has implemented Tenable’s Lightning and Thunder security software suite as part of its commitment to continue a proactive network security strategy.
“Today’s regulatory environment and its focus on critical issues such as information privacy, anti money-laundering controls, corporate governance, management of operational risk, and real-time financial disclosure demands that AFS continue to upgrade its enterprise security to meet these challenges,” said Jerry ThompSon, Director of Network Services for AFS. “We are in the business of mitigating risks on behalf of our financial institution clients so we are continually re-evaluating our technology to ensure that we provide the highest level of data integrity and management control on a global basis.”
“Our top priority at AFS is to protect our clients’ mission-critical operating environments and information delivery so they can focus on their own business strategies and interaction with their customers,” said Mark Imming, Security Officer for AFS. “With the Tenable solution, we can monitor IT security globally and remediate any network vulnerabilities immediately, reducing our response time to minutes and providing maximum protection for our clients.”
Tenable’s Lightning and Thunder suite is designed to help organizations, like AFS, comprehensively discover, inventory and prioritize all assets on a global network. It then executes an exceptionally accurate, high-speed vulnerability assessment of all network assets, including custom Web applications and wireless access points. Tenable focuses on delivering the necessary information, including intuitive reports and metrics, to the in-house IT professionals who need it most. AFS also receives a tightly integrated remediation workflow process, which provides security managers and end users with unequaled, step-by-step control over the vulnerability and security event prioritization and “fix” process.
“AFS was looking to strengthen the security of its network while increasing efficiency, and reducing risk. Tenable’s products provide an optimal solution,” said Ron Gula, President of Tenable. “Tenable products allow AFS to strategically and proactively manage IT threats and vulnerabilities, leverage security resources more effectively, and ensure stringent security policies are met.”
