Platinum Bank chooses the reliability of Microsoft Forefront.
Complex information system, based on Microsoft Forefront, has reliably protected Platinum Bank and its clients against threats of information security.
As a result of implementing the project for modernization of IT infrastructure, Platinum Bank uses the modern message system Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and Microsoft Forefront – protection system against spam and malicious software. Such complex solution provides the bank with comfortable communication tools, reliably protected against information vulnerabilities.
“At present moment there are a lot of solutions, which allow protecting mail server. Such choice was, in first turn, stipulated by the fact that the solution turned out to be the most profitable due to relation of price/functionality. Off-line operation of all modules of Microsoft Forefront Security for Exchange Server program allows not wasting the valuable time, hereby saving the money, - tells Peter Barchak, director on risks and IT, a member of Board of Directors at Platinum Bank.
Platinum Bank has received a number of economic advantages from implementation of the system: the efficiency of the equipment was increased at the expense of absence in downtime due to viruses; the time of the employees, who will not have to delete the spam in manual mode, is saved; the autonomy of Microsoft Forefront decreases the load on IT personnel.
“Thanks to Microsoft Forefront, the data and communications of Platinum Bank are under reliable protection. Using this efficient and easy solution, the bank will be able quickly to react to any threats to information security. It will allow making the operation of the bank more effective and reliable for clients”, states Victor Tsykunov, manager of the branch on work with corporative clients in the department of small and middle business “Microsoft Ukraine”.
