Online Banking Security
Data security is provided on multiple levels: by firewall, intrusion detection software, network and application-level monitoring.
A firewall serves as a security gate between the Internet and our network - including the mainframe data. By intercepting Internet data "packets" first, the firewall ensures that only packets permitted by our "rule set" may be passed beyond the public Internet to our secure web commerce server, and ultimately to the Banking application.
Intrusion detection software, running on its own server, unobtrusively analyzes data packets to detect patterns of hostile activity, misuse, or malicious Java and ActiveX applets. The intrusion detection system detects intrusion attempts in real time and responds to suspicious activity.
Firewalls and intrusion detection systems are monitored 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. The Internet banking Application and its encrypted data are not available to monitoring personnel.
Application Level Security
Unique user codes and passwords identify authorized account holders. The combined effect of the various security systems allow clients to access only areas permitted through the Internet Banking application.
