other solution we evaluated," said Elizabeth Macias, Chief Information

Disparate cybersecurity components, an inability to customize solutions
to their needs, and a shortage of qualified cybersecurity talent can
make it difficult for financial institutions to defend internal systems
against attacks. Fiserv and BlueVoyant help overcome these challenges
with a cybersecurity platform that orchestrates an organization's
internal cybersecurity modules and provides a clear and customizable
portal with actionable, plain-English alerts, along with skilled
cybersecurity experts who work to remediate threats to the institution.
Financial institutions receive consolidated reports to greatly simplify
regulatory compliance, and professional threat remediation that allows
IT staff to focus attention on building business value.

The long-term strategic alliance between Fiserv and BlueVoyant is
fortified by an investment from Fiserv in BlueVoyant, a company led by
cybersecurity experts formerly with the National Security Agency, FBI,
and British and Israeli intelligence services.

"Adversaries are targeting banks and credit unions of all sizes with
sophisticated attacks," said Byron Vielehr, Chief Administrative
Officer, Fiserv. "By working with partners like Fiserv and BlueVoyant,
financial institutions can access capabilities and insights to make
their cybersecurity strategies exponentially more effective than if they
went it alone."

"It's time to end the hacker advantage," said Jim Rosenthal,
CEO, BlueVoyant. "The solution we've developed jointly with Fiserv
closes the information and organization gap and offers financial
institutions the advanced defenses previously only available to the
largest banks and government agencies. These defenses are essential to
protect financial institutions, our industry and our economy."
