The long-term strategic alliance between Fiserv and BlueVoyant is fortified by an investment from Fiserv in BlueVoyant, a company led by cybersecurity experts formerly with the National Security Agency, FBI, and British and Israeli intelligence services.

“Adversaries are targeting banks and credit unions of all sizes with sophisticated attacks,” said Byron Vielehr, Chief Administrative Officer, Fiserv. “By working with partners like Fiserv and BlueVoyant, financial institutions can access capabilities and insights to make their cybersecurity strategies exponentially more effective than if they went it alone.”

“It’s time to end the hacker advantage,” said Jim Rosenthal, CEO, BlueVoyant. “The solution we’ve developed jointly with Fiserv closes the information and organization gap and offers financial institutions the advanced defenses previously only available to the largest banks and government agencies.
