Building Customer Trust With Innovative Technology
Paul Abramson, Director of Technology at MB&T, found himself in the midst of a complex regulatory discussion that would transition the bank’s website from https://www.montecito.com to a new domain https://montecito.bank. The .bank extension would incorporate the latest security requirements to reduce phishing, spoofing, and Internet scams. In addition, Abramson recognized the risks a potential security attack could pose to a bank’s website. He needed a vendor to help him meet the industry regulations for the domain change as well as bulletproof the site from sophisticated cyber security threats.
“我们对通常的参与者进行了评估，并对众多供应商的建议进行了筛选。”Abramson 说。“Cloudflare 的价值主张非常出色。它以单一的简单服务（DNSSEC、SSL 证书、DDoS 安全、WAF、CDN）提供有竞争力的价格，涵盖我们所需的一切，并迅速满足了我们的定制要求。”
为取得令人垂涎的 .bank顶级域名（TLD），MB＆T 必须实施带有安全扩展的 DNS （DNSSEC）。“Cloudflare 使 DNSSEC 尽可能容易使用，” Abramson说。“DNSSEC 增强了域的安全性和可信度，并帮助我们取得了 .bank扩展域名。现在，即使我们的非技术人员也意识到 montecito.bank 是 Internet 上开展业务的一个颇受信赖、经过检验且更加安全的位置。”
