OMNICOMMANDER™ to Launch a Solution to Help Protect Credit Unions from Ransomware Attacks and Cyber Threats

OMNICOMMANDER | July 17, 2021

To help credit unions protect their members and assets from cybercrminals, the leader in credit union marketing services with over 400 clients across 47 states, OMNICOMMANDER™, announced yesterday a cybersecurity information session and live training program is complimentary.


The NCUA, On April 22, 2021, had issued a warning press release on increasing cybersecurity vulnerabilities for federally insured credit unions and financial services. With the top threats being malware and phishing attacks, ransomware, denial of service, identity theft, pandemic-themed attacks, ATM skimming, and supply chain attacks, credit unions remain a target for hackers and thieves.

According to the Modern Bank Heists Threat Report, around 80% of surveyed financial institutions reported an upsurge in cyber-attacks over the past 12 months. And, from the beginning of February to the end of April 2020, ransomware attacks against the financial sector are up 9x.

Approximately 95% of cybersecurity breaks are caused by human fault, according to industry research. Executives from a credit union will acquire indispensable checkpoints to help guard their members and assets against cyber threats triggered by human errors during the one-hour cybersecurity training of OMNICOMMANDER.  Elliott Franklin, the Chief Information Security Officer of OMNICOMMANDER, will host the live training and present the information in an easy-to-understand setup. For more than 20 years, across industry verticals with companies ranging from 250 to over 20,000 employees, Franklin has built and managed international, multi-million-dollar safety programs.

The first cybersecurity information session and live training will be held on July 16, 2021, at 11 a.m. (CT) via Zoom. Limited space is available to the first 300 attendees. Register your credit union today. If you're unable to attend the July 16th training, OMNICOMMANDER will host ongoing cybersecurity training for credit unions starting July 21 - September 2, 2021. Please call the OMNICOMMANDER corporate office at (800) 807-3109 or email randall@omnicommander.com to inquire about future cybersecurity training programs and dates.

ReasonLabs | September 05, 2022

ReasonLabs, a leading cybersecurity company providing enterprise-grade protection to users all around the world, has today announced that its RAV Endpoint Protection solution has received Gold Certification from Access Technologies (OPSWAT), a leader in critical infrastructure protection. OPSWAT's Access Control Certification Program provides reliable and consistent metrics for validating the effectiveness of anti-malware products and establishing device trust. The program's Gold certification badge is awarded to applications that achieve access control compatibility. "Achieving Gold Certification in OPSWAT's Access Control Center Program further validates RAV Endpoint Protection as an industry-leading next-generation consumer solution. "The certification has created an easy way for customers to validate our solution's capabilities. End users can be assured that RAV Endpoint Protection secures endpoints with a high degree of confidence." Kobi Kalif, CEO of ReasonLabs ReasonLabs is the first Next-Generation Antivirus (NGAV) software with Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) capabilities built specifically for home users. Whereas traditional antiviruses use a one-to-one detection technology to fight breaches and malware, ReasonLabs's intuitive engine utilizes a variety of technologies and techniques to predict and prevent virus attacks. By leveraging machine learning algorithms and AI, RAV Endpoint Protection sorts through millions of files to easily identify potentially hazardous ones and ensures proactive detection and resolution of the most complex malware. "From OPSWAT's inception, we have pioneered the concept of zero trust," said Benny Czarny, founder and CEO of OPSWAT. "The OPSWAT Access Control Certification Program extends this idea to IT System Administrators by relieving them from the daunting task of researching, testing and identifying the right endpoint anti-malware and encryption solutions by having us test it for them. We've done the work and verified applications that meet our exacting zero trust standards." Since RAV Endpoint Protection utilizes state-of-the-art EDR technology powered by artificial intelligence, ReasonLabs is able to provide the strongest defense for customers' personal assets. By utilizing an EDR approach, RAV is able to detect threats virtually anywhere, in contrast to systems built with a legacy one-to-one detection method. When coupled with its other security products including RAV VPN, RAV Safer Web, RAV Online Security, and FamilyKeeper, users can feel confident knowing every single endpoint is secured. "We developed the OPSWAT Access Control Certification Program to recognize the very best security solutions in the market, and ReasonLabs' RAV Endpoint Protection solution has met these demanding requirements," said Hamid Karimi, VP Technology Alliances and OEM at OPSWAT. "Gold certification is a badge of trust that certifies that a vendor's solutions do what they say they do and are effective against the latest emerging threats. IT professionals who are looking for the most effective antivirus solutions rely on Gold Certified vendors, and now they should consider ReasonLabs' RAV Endpoint Protection."
