Located in the southeast United States, this regional Credit Union has more than one million members across 100+ branches and manages more than $10 billion in assets. The Credit Union offers a wide range of financial services, including savings and checking accounts, credit cards, loans, investment services, and insurance products.
Sending and receiving countless emails day-to-day leaves the Credit Union open to risk. From various customer documentation to loan applications and highly-sensitive data, the need for a financial institution to protect its emails from file-borne threats is crucial to its reputation and operational success.
As employees open files and asses the contents, embedded threats instantly begin executing code that can launch ransomware infections, install rootkits, and spread to other devices throughout the organization, compromising sensitive financial and personal data. A threat that AV can only do so much to prevent.
The Credit Union required a replacement for its existing Secure Email Gateway (SEG). Initially intended to provide email protection and complement the antivirus (AV) currently in place, the SEG was acquired by a vendor that the Credit Union severed ties with. As such, the Credit Union began looking for a new Cloud-based solution to secure its email channel from file-borne threats.
Votiro’s comprehensive document sanitization solution delivered outstanding results for the Credit Union. Votiro integrated directly with the ICES, creating a complete solution with full email protection capabilities, from links to files.
