TrustDefender enhances and wraps around an enterprise’s current risk and security solutions; securing the customers computing device before they begin their authentication process and protecting a customer’s confidential identity and personal information throughout the period of their online transaction. The solution ensures financial institutions do not have to worry about threats to their customer’s credentials, and more importantly, helps build the trust and reputation of the financial institutions customer relationship.

TrustDefender explained:

  • TrustDefender solves the issues facing financial institutions where an increasing percentage of their customer base connects to online banking services with malware infected computers.
  • Furthermore financial institutions have no visibility in real-time to see whether their customers have taken care of their computers and therefore the enterprise cannot distinguish between an infected or clean computer. This leaves the financial institution and the user at risk.
  • TrustDefender’s unique technology, evaluates the security health risk of a computing device, allowing the business to detect the ever increasing sophistication of malware, immediately act and stop a potential threat through the application of business rules and policies in real-time before any authentication process begins;
  • TrustDefender provides key information to online enterprises including financial institutions, while giving the enterprise risk manager a real-time risk profile of the endpoint computers access their website.
  • TrustDefender can be easily integrated with existing and older risk management engines to enhance the capabilities of these technologies.
  • TrustDefender provides the enterprise with the ability to not only protect the customer but also notify the customer of any security threats and advise them how to deal with any potential risk. The Safe&Secure Mode will make sure that a customer can always securely login and fix the problem at a later date.
