Two Indiana-based information technology (IT) companies expanding into the Indianapolis market announced a strategic alignment to help financial organizations better defend their data. Matrix Integration, LLC (Matrix), which specializes in infrastructure, and Infotex, which specializes in IT risk management for financial services, are joining staff and expertise to create a holistic approach to help the financial industry defend against ever-evolving cyber threats.
Working together, we can provide financial institutions with an end-to-end security solution, said Dan Hadaway, managing partner of Infotex. Matrix will design and implement, and Infotex will test and monitor. This addresses segregation in a manner that ensures the financial institution wins with two providers that can work well together. Nathan Stallings, president of Matrix, is looking forward to creating robust and effective custom solutions for banks.
The sophistication of data crimes particularly for financial institutions are advancing at a rapid pace, said Stallings. Infotex has been working in the banking industry for years. Together with our advanced enterprise-level infrastructure knowledge and Infotex s experience monitoring and rescuing compromised banking technology systems, we can create a secure IT environment that can detect even the most hard-to-discover threats and shut them down much more quickly.
Matrix, a $50 million-annual revenue private company helps more than 1,000 clients in over a dozen industries with a wide range of services, including:
- Design, Implement and Manage IT Infrastructures
- Wired and Wireless Network Infrastructure
- Data Center Infrastructure
- Network Infrastructure Security
- End Point Security
Infotex, a preferred service provider of the Indiana Bankers Association, has helped hundreds of financial institutions shore up their security and better monitor their risks with services such as:
- Managed Security Services (24 x 7 x 365 monitoring)
- Managed Network Monitoring (IPS/IDS/Change Detection)
- Managed Event log management (SIEM)
- IT Audits, Social Engineering, and Assessments
- IT Governance
- Policies and Procedures
- Enterprise Risk Management
- Digital Forensics
Matrix and Infotex will begin working together immediately. For more information or to speak with someone about how to work with the newly-formed strategic alliance, visit www.matrixintegration.com or call .
Accenture‘s (ACN) push into digital, cloud and security services is expected to keep the company growing faster than peers amid a tough technology spending environment, as the Dublin-based global tech consulting and services company reports fiscal third-quarter earnings early Thursday.
Analysts expect profit growth of 7% to $1.51 per share with revenue rising 4.7% to $8.83 billion.
“As Accenture’s digital and ‘next-gen’ solutions grow larger than its legacy businesses, we believe that investors will look for the company to reiterate its target of growing roughly 2 (times) the industry (average), with commentary around discretionary (tech) spending being the main investor focus,” said Daniel Perlin, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets in a report. Digital, cloud and security services contributed about 45% of total first-half, fiscal 2017 revenue and grew by double digits year over year, according to the company. Accenture competes with IBM (IBM), India’s Infosys (INFY) and Tata Consultancy Services. Offshore information technology outsourcing companies have shown decelerating revenue growth in recent quarters.
Shares ended the regular trading session Wednesday up 0.5% to 127.11.
IBD’S TAKE: Accenture stock is up 8% in 2017. Accenture has a modest Composite Rating of 71, meaning the stock is topped by 29% of all stocks in the last six months. For better-performing stocks, take a look at IBD reports on tech leaders.
Currency headwinds may have eased a bit, analysts say.
“We are expecting Accenture to report more of the same, with slightly better (earnings per share) and in-line revenues, and growth in digital and other new technologies counteracting uncertainty in discretionary spending,” added Perlin.
Sierra Leone News: Westminster Aviation Security Services
Westminster Aviation Security Services would like to make it clear that despite recent reports on Thursday 18th May in Awoke newspaper it has nothing to do with the increased security charges levied at FNA.
The charges recently imposed are of a completely separate nature and have been levied for an unrelated activity by another operator at the airport.
Westminster Aviation Security Services takes a great deal of pride in its operation at FNA as well as its other activities and work within the community. We would therefore not want the public of Sierra Leone to misunderstand the recent reports of increased charges as being in anyway related to our operation or the services we provide at FNA.
