Cooperative Association Announces Partnership with Smart Hive | 2022-05-19

The Cooperative Credit Union Association (CCUA) announced a new partnership with Smart Hive, providing a highly effective and affordable way to provide credit unions with end-to-end protection against the most sophisticated forms of cyberattacks. Smart Hive leverages the cooperative power of credit unions to serve as a powerful threat detection and prevention tool against malicious cyberattacks, both locally and globally.

CCUA President/CEO Ron McLean said, “As cybersecurity risks increase, CCUA is proud to partner with an innovative company like Smart Hive that provides tools to help credit unions protect themselves against an attack that could ultimately prevent them from serving their members. .”

Known as the “Waze for Cybersecurity”, Smart Hive is vendor and technology agnostic, allowing members to learn from other members in real time. The smart hive Smart Score offers one of the highest levels of protection in the industry against all cyberattacks…at a fraction of the cost of national brands.

“When it comes to cybersecurity for credit unions, attack on one means defense on all,” said Smart Hive CEO Sanjay Patel. “In addition to monitoring the credit union’s own technology stack, we can monitor third-party vendors to further mitigate the risks associated with a cyberattack, including reputational risk. Smart Score is similar to a FICO score for your entire IT structure, systems, and compliance policies. »

The services offered by Smart Hive include:

  • Daily backups
  • All systems patched
  • No end-of-life infrastructure
  • Sharing information with other CPUs
  • 24/7 endpoint protection against malware
  • Smart Score
