We know with Alert Logic within a manner of minutes when someone is trying to attack us and then we know in a manner of minutes or seconds that we have been attacked and we have a partner in Alert Logic who is providing us with continuous information about what’s going on with the attack, how to remediate it, what to block and what to stop.

Continuous Monitoring for Financial Institutions

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 24×7 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. 

It’s very important for me to know that there is always someone out there watching.
