Not Just Security . . . Security for Financial Institutions
5iron SOC solutions were created specifically for banks, credit unions and any organization in the financial sector. We provide the resources you need to protect your organization from cyber threats and increase regulatory compliance.
A Brief History…
Financial Institutions are consistently among the primary targets for cyber attack, and these organizations are working diligently to increase their security posture and prevent attacks. Even so, there are often gaps that concern the stakeholders and can’t seem to be addressed. Often a single platform offers to solve all of the security problems with one “magic bullet,” only to find out that while it might solve one problem, it doesn’t solve another . . . more gaps. Financial Institutions need a more effective security solution.
5iron grew out of this need
There is no magic bullet. We use disciplined, consistent security operations to effectively defend your financial institution. Our SOC services provide ongoing expertise, oversight and management of your security operations to provide the best defense possible against threats to your organization. Working as an extension of your team, we provide monitoring, management and defense 24x7. Our operational platform and security personnel combine to pinpoint specific actionable information about security events and then act on this information.
What's in a Name?
"As iron sharpens iron - so one man sharpens another"
One of the questions people often ask is "what does 5iron stand for?" It is a fair enough question. 5iron stands for many things - and that, in essence, is where the name came from. A favorite verse from the Bible - Proverbs 27:17 "As iron sharpens iron - so one man sharpens another" is one of our guiding principles. We believe our services should always leave the client in a better position than we found them. Likewise, we believe that no man is an island unto himself and a wise man is one who surrounds himself with other wise men to live a lifetime of continual "sharpening".
Also, as avid golf fans there is a double-meaning for us. We have had people tell us that the 5iron is the "Club by which all others are measured." Everyone knows exactly how far they hit their 5iron and then simply translate distance to the other clubs. We strive to be an organization "by which all others are measured."
