GUS Networks, Inc
a Los Angeles based total solution provider working
in conjunction with credit unions and federal agencies, has developed
several comprehensive programs to resolve systems & network
security related issues as well as other governmental requirements
for credit unions of all sizes.
With the recent tragedies creating new requirements that all U.S.
financial institutions be compliant with the U.S. Dept of Treasury'
, GUS has created an application, the OFAC
, (available in both a Windows and a Web-based version),
that provides your credit union with the ability to run updated
lists of organizations and individuals identified as being associated
with terrorists that are routinely provided by OFAC
your existing membership and new applicant database to search for
This application simplifies the entire process with minimal efforts
on the part of the credit union and provides the necessary measures
to ensure that your credit union is compliant with OFAC
as well as the NCUA' letter No. 01-CU-25
GUS has also developed comprehensive programs to meet system and
network security related requirements of the NCUA ISTEP
GUS Network' External Penetration and Vulnerability Testing Service
is designed to help you address those issues as well as many more
key issues on your network security. The objective of External Penetration
and Vulnerability Testing is to measure the exposure of the network
resources and online services to attacks from the Internet, and
evaluate the effectiveness of network controls, including firewalls,
routers, and servers, to prevent such attacks. It also identifies
potential weakness in services, network topology, user training,
policies and procedures, and system configuration problems.
Strength in Partnership
Through its partnership with NetScreen Technologies
GUS sells and supports NetScreen' Firewall/VPN security appliances
that provide frontline protection for your systems and network critical
security needs. The company's ASIC-based hardware systems and appliances
enable near wire-speed packet processing and ensure full connection
bandwidth by reducing the performance bottlenecks associated with
other legacy security products.
GUS' Network Operation Center utilizes and recommends NetScreen
Firewall/VPN appliances as a top of the line solution for your security
requirements. In most cases, NetScreen outperforms its chief competitors
Cisco and Checkpoint offering a wider array of products that provide
more functionality at a cost-effective pricing structure.
Network Security Services
We also provide other programs such as an industry leading comprehensive
Virus Protection Program
, (TrendMicro' NeatSuite)
that protects your systems against viruses and other malicious code
and an advanced Intrusion Detection and Response Program

occurs, allowing you to monitor all of your network connections
(i.e. traffic) in real-time while observing the composition of any
suspicious activity that takes place.
Whatever your needs may be, GUS can develop a program to meet and
