Increased Demand for Cloud Technology Drives CSI's New Approach to Cloud Services

– C-Suite Complete offers comprehensive, secure IT cloud-delivery model –

PADUCAH, Ky., July 17, 2012 - As more financial institutions migrate their business operations to the cloud, they are searching for cloud offerings that are accessible, integrated and secure. The recent statement from the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) also has increased the focus on identifying cloud providers that possess the proper controls to meet legal and regulatory requirements. To help financial institutions better understand the benefits and advanced capabilities surrounding its cloud offerings, Computer Services, Inc. (CSI) (OTCQX: CSVI), a provider of end-to-end technology solutions that empower institutions to remain competitive, compliant and profitable, has repositioned its full line of managed services under the new name C-Suite Complete.

C-Suite Complete enables banks and credit unions to fully outsource their IT operations to a secure cloud-based environment. With the ability to provide integrated telecom services, CSI offers private and secure connectivity, a critical component of cloud technology within the banking industry. By migrating IT assets to CSI’s private cloud through C-Suite Complete, financial institutions can achieve optimal operations with a responsive, scalable IT infrastructure that allows them to deploy new products and services more rapidly.

“With the explosion of cloud technology in the banking industry, we continue to implement the latest advancements so that our customers can reap the full benefits of managed services,” said Steve Powless, chief executive officer of CSI. “We also stay abreast of current regulations, such as the recent FFIEC document on outsourced cloud services, and remain dedicated to educating our customers on these standards to ensure their continued success moving forward.”

While many financial institutions are ready to fully transition IT operations to the cloud, others are not yet prepared for such a drastic migration. For banks and credit unions still interested in maintaining some operational aspects in-house, C-Suite Complete offers individual managed services in three key areas: Cloud, Security and IT Systems. These three areas account for all aspects of an internal IT team and allow financial institutions to customize IT operations at the level most appropriate for their business.

“Since we began offering managed cloud services, we’ve experienced a steady rise in the desire for cloud services that address the specific needs of financial institutions, which includes increased security, savings and flexibility,” said Dan Holt, president and general manager of CSI’s Managed Services division. “C-Suite Complete allows us to continue to grow and enhance our services, delivering customers the tools and guidance needed to efficiently advance their technology strategy, while still maintaining our high levels of service.”

CSI’s Managed Services division ranks sixth on both the MSPmentor Global 100 and Talkin’ Cloud 100 reports, making it the largest cloud provider in the United States exclusive to financial institutions. CSI is also a Cisco Master Managed Services Partner, Citrix Partner Silver Solution Advisor and SSAE-16 Audited.
