Community Bank Enhances Security with Actionable Intelligence

Real-time intelligence replaces monthly reports of security incidents


Security intelligence instead of data dumps.

The IT staff at the community bank was in the market for a new Managed Security Services provider because of what they termed a “lack of confidence.” They were concerned that the provider wasn’t including enough network devices for the price the bank paid. Their main frustration, however, was the lack of actionable intelligence.

Since the bank’s IT department consisted of just three staff members, managed security services that required a minimum amount of staff time was crucial.


QRadar from IBM and Managed Security Services from Carbon Helix.

LRS proposed the IBM QRadar SIEM appliance along with services from Carbon Helix.

The QRadar appliance consolidates log events and network flow data from thousands of devices, endpoints, and applications distributed throughout a network. It uses an advanced Sense Analytics engine to baseline normal behavior, detect anomalies, uncover advanced threats, and remove false positives.

Carbon Helix, an LRS IT Solutions partner, leverages the power of QRadar to provide 24x7 security monitoring. Attacks, attackers, and compromises are detected and analyzed so the appropriate solution can be proposed.


More actionable intelligence, less staff time spent on security.

For the bank’s IT staff, the difference between their previous provider and Carbon Helix has been amazing.

When the IT staff needed to delve into a problem identified in those huge reports from its previous provider, finding a resolution could take as much as a day and a half. Working with Carbon Helix means most solutions are found within an hour.
