MONETT, Mo. (7/27/12)--Gladiator Adaptive Threat Management methodology blocks an average of 20,000 confirmed malicious connections for Gladiator CoreDEFENSE Managed Security Services clients every day, according to ProfitStars, a division of Jack Henry and Associates.

Gladiator's Security Research department analyzes new attack methods to protect clients from new security threats. Its Adaptive Threat Management methodology streamlines multiple threat intelligence sources and multifaceted security solutions, and applies counter measures to emerging attacks. Once threats are identified, Adaptive Threat Management safeguards are pushed to the entire  client base of more than 800 credit unions and banks.

Adaptive Threat Management's safeguards respond to new attack methods by blocking dangerous connections, stopping malware downloads, and preventing communications with known malicious hosts on the Internet. The security controls adapt to the speed at which technology and researchers identify new threats, providing security coverage for many financial institutions before they are impacted. 

Gladiator CoreDEFENSE Managed Security Services include around-the-clock management, correlation, and monitoring of multiple security layers designed and developed for financial institutions. Its security uses a broad-based, multi-layered approach to guard critical data and repel malicious attacks from both outside and inside an institution's network.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (7/27/12)--Credit Union 24, a credit union-owned ATM and point-of-sale (POS) network, said its popular surcharge-free ATM programs have collectively saved credit union members more than $20 million in ATM surcharge fees during the first six months of 2012. 

"Consumers require--and always will--fee-free access to their cash, and only within the credit union movement can consumers find the largest surcharge-free ATM access," said Jim Park, Credit Union 24 president/CEO.  "Providing this widespread, surcharge-free ATM access is possible because of our network's collaborative business model."

Forty-two percent of credit unions polled in Credit Union 24's 4th annual Credit Union Industry Survey, which was conducted in the spring, cited an increased use of ATMs among their membership in the past year.  This continues a trend of nearly half of credit unions reporting an increased use of ATMs among credit union members nationwide.

Further analysis of the ATM savings achieved during the past six months illustrates that Credit Union 24's participating credit unions' members are saving, on average, $3.3 million per month and $110,000 per day.
