BALTIMORE, Apr 30, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) —
Trusteer, the leading provider of
prevention solutions, today announced a new version of the Trusteer
Mobile service which prevents mobile and online
banking fraud. Trusteer Mobile detects mobile malware
infection and helps bank customers fix security vulnerabilities on their
devices. End users can also turn off access to their online bank
accounts from anywhere using their mobile devices and safely access the
bank web site via a secure mobile browser. Financial institutions can
authorize online banking transactions using Trusteer Mobile Out-of-band
Authentication for Android and iOS devices.
Mobile supports iPhone, iPad, and Android devices, and will be on
display at Payments 2012 booth 250.
According to Goode

malware within their business in 2011; up from just nine percent in
2010. The report also found that only 18 percent of organizations are

360 Degree Protection for Mobile and Online Banking
Trusteer Mobile provides the following capabilities to protect mobile
access devices against malware designed to commit financial fraud:
Mobile Malware Detection — scans the device to detect malware
infections, vulnerabilities, rogue configurations, and potential
security risks. Using new threat and Crime Logic (i.e. attack tactics)
information uncovered by the Trusteer Intelligence Center, Trusteer
Mobile is continuously updated with countermeasures to protect against
emerging malware threats.
Secure Mobile Browser — can be accessed after the device analysis
is completed and blocks Man-in-the–Middle (i.e. Pharming) attacks by
validating that online banking IP addresses and SSL certificates are
genuine. It can be used to safely access the online banking web site or
any other site. Banks can limit mobile access to their online banking
application to devices that are using the secure mobile browser.
Online Banking Transaction Authorization — enables financial
institutions to push secure out-of-band transaction authorization
requests to mobile devices to validate account login and financial
transactions. Users can accept or deny pending transactions and review
their account transaction history.
Self-Service Account Lockdown — allows users to disable account
access when they are not banking online to prevent criminals from using
stolen credentials to submit fraudulent transactions. Account lockdown
is triggered through a simple “On/Off” switch or can be configured to
activate shortly after online banking sessions are terminated.
Endpoint Security Dashboard — provides end users with real time
notification of malware infections and device risks, as well as
step-by-step instructions to remove malware and resolve security flaws.
“As we have seen on PCs and Macs, without reliable endpoint malware
protection virtually all strong security controls can be circumvented,”
said Amit Klein, CTO of Trusteer.
“Trusteer Mobile extends our proven Cybercrime Prevention Architecture
and Malware Intelligence capabilities to mobile platforms. It ensures
mobile banking sessions and out-of-band transaction authentication are
executed on a secure, malware-free device,” he added.
Trusteer Mobile will be available from Trusteer and its business
partners on a worldwide basis at the end of Q2 2012.
