Cuna Mutual Group Selects Trusecure’s Security Monitoring Services To Protect Its Credit Union Network

Fortune 1000 Financial Services Provider Adds Remote Monitoring Services to Complement TruSecure’s Security Assurance Services

HERNDON, Va.–August 26, 2002 — TruSecure(R) Corporation, a leading managed security services provider, today announced that CUNA Mutual Group, a leading financial services provider to credit unions and their members worldwide, has selected TruSecure’s remote security monitoring services to provide comprehensive monitoring for its enterprise network.

CUNA Mutual Group, a Fortune 1000 company, saw a tremendous advantage in operational efficiency in utilizing one vendor, TruSecure, for all its security assurance and monitoring. Instead of hiring a separate security vendor to monitor its network, CUNA Mutual Group simplified its security program by selecting TruSecure’s SecureWatch to provide around-the-clock monitoring for the network’s security infrastructure. CUNA Mutual Group, which has been using the TruSecure Enterprise service for four years and maintains the TruSecure Enterprise Certification, selected TruSecure’s managed security services to be the sole vendor providing an end-to-end security solution that improves the productivity of the people, products and technology already in place.

“Financial services is an information-rich and technology-driven industry that faces many unique security challenges,” said Bob Ferderer, director of information security at CUNA Mutual Group. “We have realized tremendous value over the years from TruSecure’s proactive risk management assurance services. Now, we can combine security assurance with real-time monitoring and management services, which will provide us a way to address all phases of risk management and provide increased efficiency and safety for our many clients and customers around the world. These services will continue to provide CUNA Mutual with an excellent return on our security investments.”

TruSecure’s Lifecycle Risk Management (LRM) offers a complete range of security services that brings together technologies, expert support and real-time intelligence to address all the essential phases and processes of information risk management including: measuring risks to critical information assets, managing risks with a comprehensive security program and monitoring risk and responding to all threats. This layered approach provides an enterprise-wide, ongoing program that addresses security and manages risks at multiple layers of the organization, including subsidiaries, branch offices and home offices. TruSecure’s remote management and monitoring services span the development of security architecture and policies, the implementation of a comprehensive preventative risk management program, and the management, maintenance and real-time monitoring of critical security infrastructure decreasing both the company’s costs and vulnerabilities.

“As the financial services marketplace evolves and grows, it is important that security services keep pace with the needs of the industry. And valued, long-time customers like CUNA Mutual Group continuously use TruSecure to assist in keeping their enterprise secure and enable them to manage their business operations in a more efficient manner,” said Peter Horst, senior vice president, TruSecure Corporation. “As CUNA Mutual Group demonstrates, adding remote managing and monitoring to our capabilities has enabled our customers to turn to us for an even fuller security solution.”
