Important message from American National Bank regarding COVID-19 preparedness

Our branch lobbies are closed to unscheduled walk-in traffic with the exception of select branches in the Southeast community. Please check our locations page for the latest updates.

Services will be fully available via our mobile and online platforms, as well as from our drive-thru windows, Teller Connect, and ATMs. Please check the ‘Locations’ tab for access points nearest to you.

We want to assure you of the following as it relates to the continuity of our business operations:

  • American National Bank has been, and will continue to, actively monitor developments regarding the potential spread, and impact of the coronavirus with guidance from relevant authorities, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization and U.S., state and local government entities. We feel it is imperative to limit face-to-face interaction until we have assurances from our local health departments that the virus is contained with no further risk of community-related spread.
  • American National Bank’s Business Continuity Planning Program was successfully deployed several weeks ago with protocols that are active and reliable.
  • American National Bank remains committed to providing the highest level of service with multiple layers of protection for our most important assets: our people, information security and cash flow.

We are here to help you:

Security Statement

This Internet Banking System brings together a combination of industry-approved security technologies to protect data for the bank and for you, our customer. It features password-controlled system entry, digital certificates for the bank's server, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol for data encryption, and a router loaded with a firewall to regulate the inflow and outflow of server traffic.

Secure Access and Verifying User Authenticity

American National Bank employs numerous countermeasures to protect access to online banking systems.  Depending on the type of account being accessed, customers may be required to use a unique Log-in ID in conjunction with a security token with randomly displayed unique number combinations, challenge questions and answers, or passwords. For our customers convenience, mobile banking and SMS banking is also provided. These access methods are also protected using usernames, passwords and special access codes to allow access to accounts using mobile devices.  Internet banking access and authorization is protected using a special server configured specifically for protecting access to customer accounts.

Secure Data Transfer

Once the server session is established, the user and the server are in a secured environment. Because the server has been certified as a 128-bit secure server by Geotrust, data traveling between the user and the server is encrypted with TLS protocol. With TLS, data that travels between the bank and customer is encrypted and can only be decrypted with the public and private key pair. In short, the bank's server issues a public key to the end user's browser and creates a temporary private key. These two keys are the only combination possible for that session. When the session is complete, the keys expire and the whole process starts over when a new end user makes a server session.

Router and Firewall

Requests must filter through a router and firewall before they are permitted to reach the server. A router, a piece of hardware, works in conjunction with the firewall, a piece of software, to block and direct traffic coming to the server. The configuration begins by disallowing ALL traffic and then opens holes only when necessary to process acceptable data requests, such as retrieving web pages or sending customer requests to the bank.  Once a connection has been established, the customer is then directed to a server that is specially set up.

Using the above technologies, your Internet banking transactions are secure.
