OTTAWA, May 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - March Networks® (TSX: MN), a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, today announced that Associated Banc-Corp has standardized on a March Networks Financial Solution for enhanced security across approximately 270 retail branch locations, multiple data centers and its corporate headquarters. The bank chose the solution for its scalability, ease-of-use and enterprise-class video management following extensive evaluations conducted by both the bank's security and IT groups.
With more than 1 million customers and $21 billion in assets, Associated is one of the 50 largest financial services institutions in the United States. It is deploying March Networks Enterprise Service Manager (ESM) software and hundreds of 4000 C Series hybrid network video recorders (NVRs) working with certified solution provider Integrated Security Solutions, Inc. (ISS).
"Associated needed a surveillance system that it could manage cost-effectively from its operations center over its existing corporate network," said Joel Anders, Chief Operating Officer, ISS. "With the March Networks solution, staff can access video quickly from any remote location. The software is easy to use, so they can get up-to-speed without a lot of time spent in training. In addition, the NVRs are perhaps the most reliable in the industry."
"The March Networks systems provide the high-quality video evidence we need to deter theft, respond immediately to security incidents and conduct fraud investigations efficiently," said Ryan Rasske, Director of Risk and Financial Crimes, Associated Banc-Corp.
Proven in more than 400 banking installations worldwide, March Networks' complete Financial Solutions include powerful video management software, hybrid NVRs and IP cameras designed for high performance in variable lighting conditions common in many retail banking environments. They also include intelligent video analytics and integrated applications for fraud detection, such as Financial Transaction Investigation (FTI) and Searchlight Skimming Detection, which enable fraud investigators to conduct investigations quickly, lower costs per investigation, and build stronger case evidence to support successful prosecutions.
