May 11, 2011

Perimeter E-Security, a Milford, Conn.-based provider of information security and secure messaging services, announced that it has renewed its strategic alliance with CUNA Strategic Services (CSS) for security and messaging solutions.

“The credit union conundrum is clear: They have to address the same regulatory and security challenges as major financial institutions with significantly limited internal resources,” says Tim Harvey, Perimeter E-Security CEO. “We're grateful for CSS’ continued support of Perimeter. Since we comply with the same rigorous industry oversight as credit unions, we’re best served to deliver security and messaging solutions that meet the complex compliance needs and threats facing smaller financial institutions.”

Perimeter’s centralized architecture offers best-in-class pre-integrated technology with complete redundancy and continuous upgrades, complemented with a 24/7 engineering staff of trained subject-matter experts. Perimeter is a Certified Cisco MSSP Partner and exhibits significant industry oversight with an annual SAS70 Type II, FFIEC oversight, as well as CyberTrust-TruSecure Certified Service Provider designation.

“Perimeter delivers the most comprehensive compliance, security and messaging services, providing state-of-the-art, yet affordable, solutions for credit unions of all sizes,” notes Wes Millar, senior vice president of CSS. “Since 2006, we have recognized Perimeter as the clear choice for credit unions with its proven track record in the financial services industry.”

As the only enterprise-class security services provider offering both comprehensive threat management and secure messaging, underpinned by strong compliance expertise, Perimeter serves more than 6,000 customers, including 500 credit unions.

Perimeter offers all customers the same level of security as a Fortune 500 firm by providing solutions that allow them to easily assess, monitor, and reduce their messaging, security, and compliance risks.
