TrustDefender Completes Integration of TrustedSurfing Database

Share Article

Release of the Autotrust feature will eliminate nearly all user interaction to provide a superior transparent security experience for online banking and e-commerce.

After only five months of availability, TrustDefender has enabled its most anticipated feature. The "Community Autotrust" feature was activated today to drastically reduce any User Interactions (Popups) existing users may have experienced.

The TrustedSurfing Database is the superior community-based Anti-Phishing Approach of TrustDefender. While the system is using URL Blacklists as an additional Verification Method, the Trust Relationship will be introduced by the community. A complex security mechanism makes sure that only genuine websites will be auto-trusted.

The TrustDefender Solution provides a complete On Demand Endpoint Security Protection for participating Online Banks and Online Businesses around the world. While the GAP Program takes care of the Guaranteed Website Authentication, Security Policies, Trojan/Virus and Malicious Code Protection, Two Factor Authentication as well as the Lockdown of the Computer during an Online Transaction to provide a maximum level of Security, the TrustedSurfing Database makes sure that Phishing and Pharming Attempts will be detected automatically.

"This is a major milestone for TrustDefender as this feature will boost the User Experience on our Road to a complete transparent Security Solution to restore Trust and Confidence in Online Banking and all Online Applications. Several security checks are involved before the Auto-Trust Feature will be activated. One of them is that the Website has to be known to the Community for more than 14 Days." said Andreas Baumhof, Co-Founder and CTO of TrustDefender.

He proceeds:"We have been working on this Feature for more than six months now and finally we have reached our goal to cover over 80% of the typical requested Websites in Australia, Europe and the US. All existing users can benefit immediately from this Feature as there is no need to upgrade the software! But for those of you that do not have TrustDefender, you should download TrustDefender immediately!"

The need for new and comprehensive Security Solutions to restore Customer Confidence in Online Banking and eCommerce is highlighted in many publications and studies, e.g. the eMarketer May 06 Study “Consumers Losing Trust in Online Banking” and the May 12, 2006 Study by Forrester “Why Half Of Europe's Net Users Don't Bank Online” by Elena Giovannini, Benjamin Ensor.
