BigFix Helps Indonesia's OCBC NISP Bank Stay Ahead of Hackers and Malware

The World Is Flat When It Comes to Malware; Hackers Attack Wherever They Detect Vulnerability

EMERYVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - November 4, 2009) -

News Facts

-- OCBC NISP Bank, headquartered in Jakarta, reports that it has sharply reduced the time to deploy anti-malware countermeasures with a BigFix-based visibility, vulnerability management and software patch and update solution.

-- The BigFix solution helps the bank rally same-day response to zero-day and other IT security attacks on its computing infrastructure.

-- The BigFix solution particularly proved its worth against the Conficker worm. Bank staff could observe in real-time 'battle status' against the worm, identify vulnerable systems, and quickly send content to bring computers up to standard.

-- The BigFix solution was recommended and implemented by Mitra Integrasi Informatika, a Jakarta-based BigFix Authorized Partner together with Harrisma, a Jakarta-based BigFix Distributor.

Background and Context

--  Founded in 1941, OCBC NISP Bank focuses on financial services to the
    small and business community in Indonesia.
--  It manages 4,000 computers at over 400 headquarter and branch office
    locations distributed widely over the island nation.
--  Communication links range from modern fiberoptic to 64 Kbaud Frame
    Relay and are subject to sudden service outages during the progress of
    patch deployments.
--  The world is flat when it comes to malware. Developing country
    enterprises face the same IT security threats as their counterparts in
    wealthier economies.
--  The bank believes that the consolidated visibility-vulnerability
    management-software patch solution has both improved the Bank's
    effectiveness in maintaining information security and lowered the total
    cost of ownership compared their previous generation solution.
