Eze Castle Integration Expands Cybersecurity Suite with New Training Service

Jun 17 2016 | 7:21pm ET

In response to the ever-increasing incidence and sophistication of cyberattacks against investment management firms, technology services company Eze Castle Integration has expanded its cybersecurity product portfolio with the launch of Eze Managed Phishing & Cybersecurity Training service.

The new offering is fully managed and combines simulated phishing attacks with online training and reporting to increase security awareness, according to a company statement. Given that employees are often the weakest links in a firm’s security environment, the new service also actively modifies employee behavior online. Eze Phishing & Training exposes employees to safe, controlled phishing simulations and ‘in-the-moment’ security education, and also provides curriculum-based online security awareness training sessions to further enforce key concepts. 

For managers, the new service delivers quarterly reports summarizing phishing tests and training completion results in order to provide insights into a firm’s employee vulnerabilities, and ensure accountability.

“Cybersecurity is one of the greatest technology risks facing the investment industry today and organizations of all sizes are under attack,” said Mark Coriaty, SVP strategy and partnerships at Eze Castle Integration. “To be effective, firms must evolve security awareness training programs to include simulated attacks that expose employees to real-life scenarios.”

The new service is the latest cyber solution from Eze Castle, complementing the company’s core focus on security that includes intrusion prevention, active threat monitoring, incident response, remediation, training and assessments for clients in the hedge fund and alternative investment industries.

Founded in 1995, Eze Castle Integration provides technology solutions and private cloud services to more 650 hedge fund and alternative investment clients worldwide, including more than 100 with $1 billion or more in assets under management.
