Marketing/Sales Partners
In addition to our Endorsed Vendors, the MBA very selectively enters into co-marketing partnerships with vendors offering unique technology products that benefit Minnesota banks and where co-marketing provides the best solution to educate MBA members about the product and its benefits.
   

Citon Aardvark - Anti-Ransomware

In FY 2016-17, the MBA entered into a partnership with Citon, a Duluth-based technology company to market its Aardvark product, an innovative solution that detects and stops ransomware related file encryption before it spreads, on both the fileserver and workstation. Like a fire sprinkler system, Citon Aardvark catches a ransomware attack in progress and limits the damage it may have otherwise caused. Given the recent, massive global ransomware attacks, this partnership addresses a critically important need for banks that might be targeted by ransomware attacks.

The MBA continues its partnership with TRAC, an integrated cybersecurity risk management software, provided by SBS CyberSecurity.
