Trusteer today unveiled four product updates designed to anchor its Cybercrime Prevention Architecture.
The product updates cover a lot of ground, from technology aimed at blocking browser exploits to fingerprinting machines used by cyber-criminals that attempt to access protected Web applications. The company is also making a play for mobile device security with capabilities aimed at protecting the latest Apple iOS and Google Android devices from financial malware.
“Cybercrime methods have reached a level of sophistication which now requires organizations be able to rapidly assess the threat level of each new attack and quickly respond with appropriate counter measures,” said Mickey Boodaei, Trusteer’s CEO, in a statement. “Trusteer’s Cybercrime Prevention Architecture provides the protection, detection and intelligence infrastructure that allows customers to respond with speed to attacks using programmable behaviors, not blacklist approaches.”
As part of its strategy, the company announced new versions of the core products that make up the TCPA:
Trusteer Rapport – Trusteer has updated Rapport with the ability to monitor Web pages loaded into the browser and remove malicious content that tries to exploit vulnerabilities in the browser or its add-ons. The company has also added a new rapid response cycle into Rapport that updates its entire customer base within 10 minutes when a new threat is detected.
Trusteer Pinpoint – This solution can now detect and alert customers when fraudster machines attempt to access protected Web apps via a network of sensors deployed at multiple large financial websites that enable Pinpoint to fingerprint and build a database of controlled by cyber-criminals. This capability supplements Pinpoint’s existing ability to detect machines infected with malware that attempt to access web applications.
Trusteer Mobile – Trusteer Mobile now supports Android and the upcoming iOS 5 platform.
Trusteer Situation Room – Trusteer has also bolstered its Online Fraud Intelligence and Risk Analysis Service with a new interface that allows financial institutions and large enterprises to access real-time data and generate alerts on cybercriminal activity and new attack methods that target specific organizations.
“The ability of cyber criminals to develop, distribute, and operate new tools under the radar of the industry is troubling,” said Amit Klein Trusteer’s CTO, in a statement. “Enterprises and individuals continue to rely on security architectures that were designed 20 years ago and have limited value in protecting their critical assets against cybercrime attacks.”
All of the products are available now.
