MDT partners with Blumira to boost credit union cybersecurity

FARMINGTON HILLS–Member Driven Technologies, a credit union service organization that provides a cloud alternative for core processing and IT needs, announced that it has expanded its cybersecurity offerings, introducing a new security solution from Ann Arbor-based Blumira, a cybersecurity provider that helps organizations detect and respond to security threats.

This partnership enables MDT’s credit union clients to monitor and identify real threats, block known threats with automated responses and gain access to top security expertise. Credit unions can now obtain logs from MDT-managed data sources, like their firewalls, to ingest into Blumira or other third-party solutions to improve threat visibility. MDT has also teamed up with Detroit-based Global Telecom Solutions, a professional consulting firm that specializes in cost optimization and extraordinary customer service for business technology needs, to make the Blumira offering cost effective for its credit union clients.

“The Blumira SIEM platform simplifies advanced threat protection and response, leveraging Blumira’s 24/7 SecOps support team and their incident detection engineers to detect stealthy attacks and help guide the proper response,” said Jeremy Young, director of partner strategy at Blumira. “With our technology, MDT’s impressive membership of credit unions will be able to bolster their cybersecurity efforts without hiring security engineers and will more easily meet compliance objectives and cyber insurance requirements.”

Added GTS President Ryan Hathaway: “As a firm committed to helping businesses optimize costs for technology needs, we are proud to work with MDT and Blumira, helping them deliver leading cybersecurity solutions to credit unions at an affordable cost. This partnership demonstrates MDT’s dedication to delivering cost-effective, innovative solutions to their credit union clients.”

And Larry Nichols, president and CEO of Member Driven Technologies, said: “Cyberthreats continue to become increasingly sophisticated, with hackers finding new ways to attempt to steal sensitive information. Leveraging our partnership with Blumira through GTS, our credit union clients can streamline threat protection, providing an additional layer of security to their organizations and members. MDT is committed to delivering the tools and solutions necessary for credit unions to efficiently run their institution and provide positive member experiences, and this offering is another example of those efforts.”
