LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) March 27, 2018
Cytellix (cytellix.com), the cybersecurity division of Information Management Resources, Inc. (IMRI), announces a partnership with Consilien as an alliance partner with Manufacturers Bank Los Angeles. In this partnership, Cytellix and Consilien will market and drive the sense of urgency for implementing high quality IT and cybersecurity practices to Manufacturers Bank clients.
The Pentagon Deputy Defense Security has issued a statement, “Protect your data or lose our contracts,” a warning not only for large federal contractors, but one for all sized companies, emphasizing the shift to making cybersecurity a top priority. With the rise of cyber-attacks within the small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), now more than ever, partnerships are needed to help our communities. Statistics show that sixty percent of SMBs who fall victim to a cyber-attack usually go out of business within six months. Companies must understand their cyber posture and build a cyber improvement plan to reduce their attack surface that includes real-time cyber awareness.
Increased requirements for cybersecurity compliance and policies for the manufacturing, food safety, healthcare, and financial services markets have added tremendous pressures to these already strained small and medium-sized business owners. The constant system upgrades, limited cyber resources, and restricted budgets have prevented most of these organizations from protecting their infrastructure. An alliance partnership between Cytellix, Consilien and Manufacturers Bank Los Angeles will help the banks customers gain a better understanding of how to proactively implement cybersecurity improvements.
Mike Yadzyn, Vice President, Manufacturers Bank says, “We value our customers and the health of their business performance. The value of a cyber assessment, improved cyber security and the ability to monitor changes, are viewed favorably by the bank. We encourage all our customers to be cyber prepared and reduce their vulnerabilities. We are very pleased with the new alliance with Consilien and Cytellix.“
Brian Berger, Executive Vice President of Commercial Cybersecurity for Cytellix, stresses the important relationship between cyber-preparedness and ongoing continuous cyber monitoring for these manufacturers as being crucial to business continuity in our growing economy. “We feel confident that our combined expertise with Consilien will position Manufacturers Bank’s clientele to not only be cyber-ready today, but will proactively identify threats, in real-time, that will protect their businesses from financial losses by utilizing the capability to continuously monitor their enterprise network 24/7.
Principal Partner of Consilien, Eric H. Kong says, “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to provide the clients of Manufacturers Bank with the cost-effective resources they need to be cyber secure and compliant. Mike Yadzyn has been a tremendous resource and we look forward to working together. The strategic partnership with Cytellix allows us to continue to be at the forefront of providing real world and cost-effective security and IT solutions to our clients. Their unique competitive advantage of providing continuous real-time monitoring, becomes our clients competitive advantage. Now they can sleep a little better at night knowing that someone is literally watching the store, at all hours.”
