“We began looking at deploying endpoint security as part of our compliance efforts with the new FFIEC Guidance,” said Patsy J. Houck, Senior Vice President, Operations and Branch Administration for BankAnnapolis.

“We chose Trusteer Rapport for Online Banking because it allows us to secure the connection for online banking and ACH transactions. Regardless of the security on the customer device, Trusteer can help in the prevention of account takeover fraud,” she added.

“Trusteer also gives us visibility into infected machines. Once installed, Trusteer Rapport can detect and remove malware infections. This allows us to require customers that were infected to change their credentials, as an additional precaution. Furthermore, Trusteer Intelligence provides us with continuous updates on emerging threats so we can quickly implement countermeasures within our IT infrastructure,” she concluded.

Founded 22 years ago, BankAnnapolis is a federally insured community bank with nearly $440 million in assets. The bank provides commercial and retail banking through eight offices in Maryland. FIS banking and payments technologies are deployed by the bank for its online banking and ACH payments services.

Cybercriminals are using advanced malware that performs key logging, Man in the Middle, and Man in the Browser attacks to bypass existing fraud prevention controls, including hardware-based devices, two-factor authentication, and one-time passwords. Trusteer’s unique architecture is being used by hundreds of banks to successfully fight account takeover and credential theft. Trusteer Rapport is a key component of this architecture, providing anti-malware protection, blocking and disinfection of PC and Mac devices. Trusteer Rapport combines endpoint protection with real-time threat intelligence gathered from millions of endpoints around the world.

“Compromised endpoints pose significant risk to both the financial institution and the customer, which prompted the FFIEC to update its guidance for online banking security last year,” said Yishay Yovel, vice president of marketing for Trusteer. “Trusteer Rapport for Online Banking not only protects banking sessions when a machine is infected, but also disinfects the device and alerts the bank. This feedback mechanism enables institutions like BankAnnapolis to take additional steps to block attacks that are targeting their brand and customers.”
