Pressure has been mounting on banks and credit unions to provide more solid protection of members' personal information stored on-line, but until now, only partial solutions existed. As many credit unions and on-line retailers have learned, firewalls and SSL do not provide essential protection of databases. Because of this, many credit unions delay launching e-branch strategies, while others move ahead and risk losing valuable member trust by exposing personal account information to hackers. Fortunately, credit unions and on-line retailers now have a solution available to them that will close the gaping hole that traditional data security methods leave open.
