CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Xamin, Inc. announced its proactive Vulnerability Management Service, which provides ongoing assessment and remediation of security threats for financial institutions’ IT infrastructure. The company is a leading national managed IT service provider (MSP) for community banks, healthcare and other highly regulated industries.
Recent data breaches have heightened the awareness for network security, however supporting enterprise level teams with technical and regulatory expertise incurs significant costs for financial institutions. In addition, strict auditing requirements make in-house vulnerability management a risky and, if non-compliant, expensive endeavor. With the Vulnerability Management Service, Xamin leverages Tripwire, a leading global provider of advanced threat security and compliance solutions, and its national vulnerability database and IP360 security risk management solution to proactively scan financial institutions’ entire IT systems for existing and potential vulnerabilities. Once complete, Xamin delivers post-assessment internal and external network status and steps for any needed remediation. The Vulnerability Management Service is further enhanced by ProfitStars’ Gladiator Technology®, which helps financial institutions nationwide secure their networks and protect their non-public information in accordance with FFIEC regulations.
“A comprehensive vulnerability management strategy is one of the cornerstones of any security program,” said Erik Gustafson, chief technology officer of Xamin. “With the daily flood of new threats and the rapidly changing tactics of today’s cybercriminals, timely knowledge and remediation of threats is necessary and Xamin’s Vulnerability Management Service meets that objective.”
In keeping with Xamin’s Shaped by Auditors for Auditors SM initiative to reduce the time and compliance burdens found in today’s complex financial IT environments, the Vulnerability Management Service exceeds the compliance requirements of auditors for annual assessments by monitoring IT assets more frequently. It also reduces remediation activities during audits by pinpointing potential security hazards and fixing them as soon as they are discovered. Additionally, clients work with Xamin as a single provider who utilizes partners and vendors which allow a layer of separation for auditors.
Founded in 1999, Xamin, Inc. is a Chicago based company offering industry leading IT services to financial institutions as well as other highly regulated industries. The company provides consulting, managed IT services and integration of a full suite of security, cloud and vendor solutions. Xamin specializes in transforming IT into a revenue driving capability for an organization rather than a cost and compliance challenge. Xamin’s Shaped by Auditors for Auditors SM initiative ensures its managed services meet the needs of auditors, and the company has committed annually to the examination and reporting of controls in a service organization under the SOC2 Type II certification.
