Great Bay Software Helps Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union Identify and Secure Network EndpointsGreat Bay's Beacon Endpoint Profiler Provides a Comprehensive Endpoint Inventory, Contributes to IT Security Operations Efficiency (February 08, 2011)
DOVER, NH -- (Marketwire) -- 02/08/11 -- Great Bay Software, the industry leader in Endpoint Profiling, has been selected by Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union, one of the strongest credit unions in the country, to assist in the network discovery phase of deploying a Network Access Control solution. Great Bay's flagship product, Beacon Endpoint Profiler, is providing RBFCU with a real-time, contextual inventory of all network-attached endpoints. Further, RBFCU will rely on Beacon for ongoing Endpoint Identity Monitoring of more than 35 remote sites within the credit union network.
Due to stringent regulations imposed by the financial industry, protecting the live data and infrastructure equipment that make up the credit union's network is critical. Monitoring the identity of all network-attached endpoints is a priority for RBFCU, as the credit union uses more than 35 locations to support more than 335,000 customers throughout Texas.
"We were not looking for a full NAC deployment; our goals were simple, to have a true inventory and reporting of network-attached devices. We received this and more with Beacon," Charles Beierle, RBFCU information security director said. "We originally viewed the appliance as a tool for our network administrators; however, it was quickly adopted by our security team as well."
"This is a great example of a customer selecting a technology for a specific project, but having the vision to leverage the data provided by Beacon to improve the overall efficiency of the IT operation," said Steve Pettit, president of Great Bay Software. "Financial organizations everywhere are dealing with infrastructure security concerns, and we were pleased to be able to add value to this project at RBFCU."
