Deployment country


Based in Melbourne, Australia, and employing approximately 800 people, ME Bank is a 100 percent Australian-owned bank. Regulated by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA), ME Bank was established by industry super funds, bringing customers low-cost, no-commission banking. The bank is proud to provide a genuine banking alternative and a fairer way to bank.

Business need
ME Bank needed to safeguard its current financial applications with more security-rich technology to decrease its potential for fraud and increase innovation.

The bank implemented a security solution based on IBM software, which established an automated workflow around user access to and deactivation from the bank’s applications.

The security-rich IBM solution reduces the risk of fraud and simplifies technology processes while boosting employee productivity and innovation.
