EUGENE, Ore., Aug. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Montana Bankers Association (MBA) has endorsed IP Services to provide cybersecurity and critical Information Technology (IT) system's management to MBA member banks. IP Services was awarded the endorsement by MBA subsidiary BANCSERVE's board of directors.

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.

"We are excited to forge a new relationship with IP Services that will bring tremendous value to our member banks by way of providing superior management of their critical IT systems," said MBA President and CEO Steve Turkiewicz. "We chose IP Services based on their knowledge and experience of managing other banks, large and small, throughout the Northwest.  In addition to MBA, they are also endorsed by the Arizona, Oregon and Washington Bankers Associations.  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 Montana."

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