Financial services technology provider TAS has partnered with Endeavour Mutual Bank to activate its ".bank" URL in a move aimed at enhancing Endeavour’s cyber security measures.

The implementation of the ".bank" domain suffix, which TAS claims is a game changer for the banking industry, significantly bolsters customer security and privacy, and forms part of Endeavour Mutual Bank’s broader rebrand from Select Encompass Credit Union.

Under the project, TAS says it has delivered high-quality IT infrastructure solutions needed to make the bank’s switch to the new domain, (www.endeavour.bank), a reality.

The ".bank" domain suffix is operated by fTLD and requires a higher level of security than traditional ".com" banking domain suffixes, and is designed to give customers enhanced confidence when they bank online.

According to TAS, the six-month collaborative project with Endeavour Mutual Bank and banking technology provider, Ultradata has been a huge success.

Shane Baker, TAS chief executive, said “this industry-first” was a move in the right direction for Australia’s banking industry.

“Australian banks and financial institutions remain at high risk of cyber-attacks, so it is encouraging to see forward-thinking activities such as this being implemented to add an extra layer of protection from online criminals and syndicates.

“Endeavour shares our commitment to providing ground-breaking security solutions that give customers peace of mind for their everyday banking needs. We are delighted to have been involved with the delivery of Endeavour Mutual Bank’s new URL domain.”

Endeavour chief executive Mark Worthington says becoming an early adopter of the dot-bank system ensures the company remains at the forefront of cyber-crime prevention.

“As a mutual bank, providing data security for our customers remains our top priority and the transition to a dot-bank website reflects that commitment. The team at Endeavour would like to extend a big thank you to TAS for making the launch a huge success.”  

Worthington said the transition to the new domain would further bolster the bank’s ability to protect the security of community members using the website in anticipation of mitigating exposure to cyber threats for websites and email caused by spoofing, phishing and other malicious email-borne activities.

He said it would also provide strong encryption to ensure confidentiality and integrity over the Internet.
