NetworkGuardian BankGrade powered by Microsoft 365 includes the Enterprise Suite of Office 365 along with additional security services powered by the Microsoft Azure Cloud. Our fully managed IT service package utilizes the latest cloud services and automation to provide modern technology for productivity and security. We specifically designed and configured our BankGrade package to check all the boxes when it comes to security compliance for mortgage companies. Mortgage companies with as few as five employees can now get the same enterprise level security as much larger financial institutions. Utilizing cloud services gives your workforce the ability to work from any location and with any device while meeting the strict security requirements required in the mortgage industry.
With an efficient pay as you go model you only pay for the services you need that scale up and down each month with the size of your workforce. This cloud-based model replaces the need to manage servers in your office and will eliminate the need for traditional IT service providers. Your Microsoft tenancy remains portable, so you can transfer your platform directly to Microsoft or to another IT services provider and are not trapped in a long-term contract. NetworkGuardian BankGrade provides a higher level of security and monitoring while savings thousands each year.

To get started, ABT completes an assessment of your existing IT infrastructure and data. Then we design your cloud based network for compliance, security and productivity. We know change is difficult and the loan business never stops, but do not worry. We’ve deployed cloud-based IT infrastructure for over 1,500 mortgage companies, banks and credit unions.
With Windows Auto-Pilot and scripting automation new employee onboarding is quick and easy. Your new employee can count on a call from a professional ABT technician to answer questions, provide training and ensure they have access to everything they need to start work fast. We realize first impressions are important and good employees are hard to come by.
ABT’s offboarding process ensures company data is safe and archived for compliance. Personal mobile devices are remotely wiped of company data and access is blocked to all company assets. Licensing is removed and the email account is converted to a free shared mailbox so designated employees can monitor incoming email.
We create a centralized Intranet hub to store public documents, post company news and an outlet for leadership communications. We configure Microsoft Teams to create group chat, document storage and communications through video conferencing, internal phone calls and recording and transcription services. We map local folders for each employee for easy access to documents for editing, uploading and sharing. We configure Microsoft Teams and SharePoint sites to replace file servers, shared drives and box type services. Depending on your security needs these hubs are only accessible through company managed devices. Using our Mobile Application Management service employees can utilize their personal mobile device to access email, Teams and documents only when the device meets security policies. Company data on mobile devices can be removed at anytime by the company administrator.
Anti-virus software isn’t enough. With today's cyber threat landscape you need several layers of security to protect your data, your borrowers and your business. Employees are mobile and they may be using more than one device to get their work done. We use Microsoft Endpoint Manager to enforce policies that prevent unauthorized access to your network. While some companies let their employees login to Outlook, Teams and OneDrive from any device our security policies ensure employees only get access to company assets from professionally managed devices.

Mortgage companies are under constant attack. Hackers know that many small to medium sized mortgage companies have little security and a wealth of valuable information.

Let ABT support your employees with unlimited calls to the help desk for questions, training, and anything else they might need. Our support team is made up of seasoned professionals who talk to mortgage professionals all day. Whether they're working from home, on-the-go, or at the office we provide in-house ABT employees to fix problems fast.
