EUGENE, Ore., Dec. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The Arizona Bankers Association (AZBA) has endorsed IP Services to provide cybersecurity and critical Information Technology (IT) system’s management to AZBA member banks. IP Services was awarded the endorsement by AZBA in order to help its membership address the complexity of compliance and the growing concerns around IT security.

Banks maintain sensitive information that they work hard to protect. As consumers and businesses rely more on electronic devices to bank and shop online, ensuring availability and security of evolving systems is critical to a bank’s success. The strict security and compliance standards required of banks also make operating IT more complex. IP Services solves these challenges by using an integrated set of processes and controls to ensure uninterrupted systems and business performance while adhering to strict compliance and security requirements.

“This new relationship with IP Services will provide the necessary IT services that our member banks are required to provide it its customers,” said AZBA President and CEO Paul Hickman. “We chose IP Services based on their knowledge and experience of managing other banks, large and small, throughout the western United States. They have a unique ability to manage and secure IT that is cost effective and demonstrates an ability to mitigate IT risk while demonstrating compliance on an on-going basis. IP Services is an ideal IT provider for banks in Arizona.” In addition to AZBA, IP Services is also endorsed by the Oregon, Washington and Montana Bankers Associations with pending announcements from a couple other state banking associations.

“IP Services is excited to partner with AZBA and build relationships with Arizona banks,” said Scott Alldridge, CEO of IP Services. “We look forward to helping Arizona banks improve availability, comply with audit and compliance requirements, and bridge the gap between business and IT strategies.”
