Association partners with cybersecurity company eScope Solutions

13315539_10154294849922754_5324050980671540687_nThe New York Credit Union Association and eScope Solutions have entered into a new business partnership. Under the agreement, eScope Solutions, a managed security service-based technology organization, will offer Association-member credit unions access to a variety of cybersecurity solutions at a preferred rate.

“Cybersecurity can no longer be an afterthought, but credit unions do not always have the tools, resources or manpower to address this critical function on their own,” said Association President/CEO William J. Mellin. “Regulators have started to closely scrutinize the cyberdefense systems at credit unions, as well as the policies and procedures that go along with them. eScope Solutions can help credit unions address all of these areas, and, as a New York-based organization, they are well-versed in the cybersecurity needs of the state’s credit unions.”

eScope Solutions specializes in three major areas: advanced networking solutions, managed security solutions and compliance. Their extensive product list includes: intrusion detection and prevention, firewall management, email encryption, security information and event management, network monitoring, data leak prevention, managed endpoint protection, web content filtering, and patch management.

The company also offers vulnerability assessment services, penetration testing, virtual administration, regulatory compliance assessments, security policy development and security awareness training.

“Cybersecurity is a field that is evolving in real-time on a daily basis, and it requires a dedicated team of experts to properly protect an organization from these increasingly sophisticated threats,” said eScope Solutions President and CEO Gerard Heege Jr. “Our background and focus is in the financial services arena, and we have been working with credit unions on managed security functions for years. We’re looking forward to building on our already strong relationship with New York’s credit unions and providing them with the support they need to address and tackle whatever cybersecurity challenges they face.”
