Strong IT for a Family Oriented Financial Institution: Liberty Savings Association

By August 20, 2018 Testimonials
Liberty Savings Association

The Liberty Savings Association is a family-oriented financial institution that offers personal and commercial banking services in the Fort Scott, KS and Bourbon County area. Liberty Savings was established in 1919. OXEN Technology has been working to support Liberty Savings’ technical needs since 2011 through a wide range of infrastructure solutions, managed services, and IT planning and consulting.

Liberty Savings’ predominant need has been technical remediation in response to their annual IT audits. OXEN performs a cost/benefit analysis of their annual IT audit results, recommends priorities, and rectifies vulnerability issues. Liberty Savings is very proactive in routinely assessing and reducing IT security risk through ongoing remediation.  Their IT auditors have remarked that their environment is surprisingly more secure compared to typical bank IT technical assessments. We’re proud to be a part of that!

We have also worked on major IT projects with Liberty Savings to help them maintain their hardware and software. We’ve helped them simplify their IT environment through consolidating and virtualizing their servers, which helped reduce their infrastructure to an optimal size and lowered their total cost of ownership. We have also upgraded their server hardware and network operating systems to keep them current and compliant. Another project involved designing a rack enclosure solution to physically secure their infrastructure and providing battery backup systems complete with monitoring and alerting systems.

We also provide a variety of managed services to Liberty Savings, including backup disaster recovery services, remote monitoring and management of their servers and desktops, and firewall management. We’re glad to be a strong IT partner for Liberty Savings.

The challenge grows even faster as more and more devices are attached to our networks. New devices like thermostats, smart lights, cell phones, watches, and smart monitors of all types connect to our networks to share information.…

Are you new to Excel, and not sure where to start with formulas and operations? Many spreadsheets use basic math: adding and subtracting numbers or multiplying and dividing. Understanding these math formulas will help you graduate to more complex equations to manipulate your Excel data. How does basic math work in Excel? Excel uses formulas or functions to manipulate data. A function takes an input, which is the content of cells plus some operating symbols that say what to do with the data. You can input a single cell into a function or a range of multiple cells. For addition,…
