NORCROSS, Ga., Jan. 18, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- S1 Corporation (Nasdaq:SONE), a leading global provider of payments and financial services software solutions, today announced S1 Defense, a new name for information security products and services the company is offering its financial institution customers.

The regulatory requirements concerning security placed on financial institutions often exceed staff capabilities in both time and resources.

S1 Defense assists financial institutions in building their security programs to help protect financial institutions and their customers from both internal and external threats. These products and services are designed to help financial institutions build a stronger security posture, manage risk and reduce the cost of an information security program. S1 Defense delivers a breadth of products and services including:

  • Security Assessments – external, internal and combined reviews
  • Managed Security - network security monitoring of firewalls, intrusion prevention, remote monitoring, reporting, response, and support services
  • Logging, Alerting, and Reporting - network performance, trending analysis and security vulnerability information beneficial to service, planning, management and compliance
  • Email Security– a hosted solution to encrypt email and help block spam, viruses, phishing schemes, offensive content, hacking attacks, and related threats
  • Phishing and Vishing Intervention and Detection - incident response planning for phishing attacks, detection and take down services, as well as detailed forensic data

"The S1 Defense team knows their business, and they do a great job. I appreciate that I can pick up the phone at any time and receive top-notch service from their highly trained engineers," said Tim Sigmon, IT Manager, Carolinas Telco Credit Union. "I have learned that I can look to S1 Defense as my security provider, and I look forward to many more years of quality service from the company."
