Penn Woods Bancorp (PWB), Inc. is a $1.3 billion community bank holding company, serving customers throughout Central Pennsylvania. Their holdings consist of two banks, Jersey Shore State Bank (JSSB) and Luzerne Bank (LUZ), and offering retail banking, commercial banking, mortgage services, and financial services divisions.

The Challenge

About seven years ago, PWB had a state examiner come in to discuss strategies on intrusion detection and intrusion prevention. The examiner suggested to look into a 24x7 monitoring solution to ensure their coverage as a financial institution. Mark Beatty, CIO & Security Officer, and his team started their research and found Alert Logic.
