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.

Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud Reaches Massive Scale and a Global Footprint

Arctic Wolf | November 09, 2021

-Arctic Wolf®, a leader in security operations, today announced the global expansion of its industry-leading cloud-native platform, the Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud, to provide customers and partners with unified visibility, protection, and automation, through a growing number of technical integrations. With the establishment of a European Security Operations Center (SOC) in Frankfurt, Germany, Arctic Wolf customers in any location, will have full flexibility in how their native security solution data is stored and accessed to aid in their compliance with local and international data governance regulations. Built on an open XDR architecture, the Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud has scaled to ingest, parse, enrich, and analyze over 1.6 trillion security events and 1.3 petabytes of data each week from over one million licensed users at 2,000 global customers. By leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence the Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud now processes events at an equivalent or greater rate than that of other market-defining cloud platforms. This momentum is driven by a strong uptick in demand for the technology in the enterprise market, demonstrated by Arctic Wolf’s 510% year-over-year large enterprise ARR growth in the first quarter of the fiscal year. Unlike the rest of the industry that is just now starting to parse solutions to integrate data from multiple attack surfaces, Arctic Wolf’s platform was built from day one on a cloud-native architecture that seamlessly ingests data from endpoint, network, identity, and cloud sources to deliver automated threat detection and response at scale. This unification of an organization’s security data ensures only verified security incidents are escalated to customers, effectively eliminating alert fatigue, and ensuring internal security resources have the time needed to focus on hardening their overall security posture. Powering Security Operations at a Global Scale To further support Arctic Wolf’s ongoing global expansion, the company has leveraged the scalability and extensibility of the AWS public cloud infrastructure, providing new customers the ability to have their native security solution data hosted within the Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud in their choice of the United States, Germany, or Canada. With five SOCs spread across North America and Europe, as well as a growing team of remote security analysts, organizations within Arctic Wolf’s global customer base can have confidence that the Arctic Wolf Concierge Delivery Model aligns with the needs of their compliance requirements on their security journey to end cyber risk. Delivering Critical Outcomes Across the Entire Security Operations Framework The massive growth in the power and scale of the Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud has been pushed by explosive market demand for security operations, which has resulted in the company doubling its sales for eight consecutive years and achieving a $4.3B valuation as part of a $150M Series F funding round in July. In addition to the business expansion driving the momentum of its cloud-native platform, Arctic Wolf has also made aggressive investments in ecosystem integrations, resulting in the Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud adding support for dozens of new security data sources over the last year. Arctic Wolf’s universal and unlimited approach to data ingestion allows customers to gain visibility and control over historically disparate security solutions, while removing the need for security leaders to choose which data sources are important or cost-effective to monitor. Supporting Quotes: “While every other aspect of the modern technology stack has a category-defining platform —think Salesforce, ServiceNow, and Workday— no one in cybersecurity has managed to unify the market and produce a true platform that serves all security operations use cases for midsize and enterprise customers,The Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud delivers exactly that – the unified security operations experience that owns the outcome for the customer, and our new global footprint makes it easier than ever for organizations to have full control over where their native security solution data is stored.” Nick Schneider, president and chief executive officer of Arctic Wolf “Accelerated digital transformation and the shift to cloud-based solutions require organizations to rethink data protection strategies and upscale their data security infrastructures to meet the ever-evolving privacy and data compliance landscape,” said Duncan Brown, vice president, European Enterprise Research, IDC. “This trend is global in nature and in Europe, in particular, we are seeing a rapid movement to adopt cloud environments. The vendors who will lead the market in that change will need to demonstrate a proven track record in delivering a mature, global cloud model that meets data sovereignty requirements without compromising speed and scalability.” With the Security Operations Cloud, Arctic Wolf is the first to deliver a cloud-based platform that gives organizations the protection, resilience, and guidance they need to defend against cyber threats, including Managed Detection and Response (MDR), Managed Risk, Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), and Managed Security Awareness —each delivered by the unique concierge delivery model. About Arctic Wolf: Arctic Wolf® is a global leader in security operations, delivering the first cloud-native security operations platform to end cyber risk. Powered by threat telemetry spanning endpoint, network, and cloud sources, the Arctic Wolf® Security Operations Cloud ingests and analyzes more than 1.6 trillion security events a week across the globe, enabling critical outcomes for most security use cases and optimizing customers’ disparate security solutions. Now deployed to more than 2,000 customers worldwide, the Arctic Wolf® Platform delivers automated threat detection and response at scale, and empowers organizations of any size to stand up world-class security operations with the push of a button.
