Community Defense Platform Option Announced for FS-ISAC Members

Oct. 9, 2017 – The Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) is now working with Perch Security as an affordable and manageable way for its members to connect and use their valuable threat intelligence.

Perch connects FS-ISAC members with FS-ISAC threat intelligence so that they can fully interact with it; all without costly equipment or additional analyst hours to manage it. This is the first solution that provides actionable and effective threat intelligence to smaller financial organizations with limited budgets – making ISAC membership more attractive to a very large pool of businesses. “We also believe the increased participation in FS-ISAC will benefit the entire membership base, offering a larger view of threat activity across the industry,” added Aharon Chernin, CEO and founder of Perch.

“FS-ISAC is committed to sharing information and analysis with our members to stay ahead of cybercrime,” said Greg Temm, chief information risk officer for FS-ISAC. “Having a whole intelligence team working behind the scenes to deliver alerts tailored to a specific financial institution and providing actionable intelligence like concrete steps to remedy an incident allows a company to act quickly to protect their business and customers. We look forward to working with Perch to continue to achieve these objectives.”

Barely a year old, Perch already has a reputation for converting the dubious into evangelists, sensing customer needs and exceeding expectations. Michael Cole, CISO of First Financial Bank, a $6.53 billion dollar bank headquartered in Abilene, TX, has been using Perch for 8 months. “Aharon and his team actively communicate with their users,” said Cole. “We can trust that Perch’s Security Operations will contact us right away if a true positive alert is detected on our networks; but Perch also provides what we need to get in and triage the alerts ourselves if we choose.”

“We provide a product that fills a very real need, with a strong commitment to personal service. Our goal is to connect users with their best source of intelligence in a straightforward and affordable way, and really take some of the load off our CISOs and CIOs,” said Aharon Chernin, Perch CEO.
