Trusteer Cybercrime Prevention Architecture
Trusteer Rapport for Online Banking and Trusteer Rapport for Enterprise are integral components of Trusteer’s Cybercrime Prevention Architecture, a unique, multi-layered and adaptive approach to combating cybercrime. Tens of millions of endpoints, including corporate, BYOD and customer devices, are protected by Trusteer. When a threat is detected, it is blocked and details are sent to the Trusteer Intelligence Center for analysis by the company’s security experts. This intelligence on emerging attacks enables Trusteer to rapidly create and push out countermeasures in real time to ensure Columbia Bank, and all Trusteer clients, are continually protected against new threats.
“Advanced malware is being used to commit cybercrime by targeting key individuals inside organizations such as Columbia Bank, as well as their customers. In both cases, the primary vector for these attacks is infecting computers with malware that is used for intellectual property theft, corporate espionage, and financial fraud,” said Yishay Yovel, vice president of marketing for Trusteer. “Trusteer’s global visibility across tens of millions of protected endpoints allows us to immediately recognize new attacks and adapt the protection layers to secure our customers against threats that may be targeting their employees, partners and customers.”
