PRESS RELEASE

Gulf International Bank selects Assuria Log Manager

Reading, United Kingdom, August 2011 – Assuria Ltd is pleased to announce that in 2010, Gulf International Bank, B.S.C. based in the Kingdom of Bahrain selected Assuria Log Manager (“ALM”), Assuria’s forensic log management, security intelligence and protective monitoring solution to help meet its internal IT governance requirements.

“Automated management of IT system logs and creation of secure audit trail vaults and archives for banking compliance purposes were the initial drivers for this project, but ALM’s powerful and flexible analysis and monitoring features have also been utilised as we continue to evolve our overall security monitoring and reporting strategy and needs” said Ali AlMutawaa, Network Security Manager at Gulf International Bank.

“At Gulf International Bank, we identified that the ALM software solution met the functional and security requirements of our current demanding banking environment, but just as importantly, the flexible architecture inherent in ALM allows us to not only meet scalability requirements but could also enable us to meet future requirements. In addition, early in the implementation of ALM, we identified some special requirements that reflected our particular environment and Assuria have been very helpful in enhancing and adding to their solution to meet our needs”, added Mr. AlMutawaa.

“Our ALM technology was designed from the outset with strong integrity and flexibility built-in, and as a company we pride ourselves on our responsiveness to customer needs, so we were delighted to help GIB with the implementation of ALM to quickly meet compliance needs, while also helping them to implement their cyber monitoring system using ALM. Looking ahead, Assuria’s ALM solution can easily cope with collecting and managing logs from almost any system or device that GIB might implement in the future, thus providing future proofing and a low risk investment” said Terry Pudwell, Director at Assuria Ltd.

Terry Pudwell added “ALM provides secure collection and management of log data from almost any system or device in the IT infrastructure, maintaining this log data in original and complete form, thus providing a forensic audit trail, a protective monitoring framework and deep intelligence into IT activity. At Assuria, we are delighted that a leading financial services provider in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region such as GIB has recognised the technical strengths, flexibility and cost effectiveness of Assuria solutions and the ability of Assuria solutions to meet the company’s IT security governance requirements”.
