Trusteer, the leading provider of cybercrime prevention solutions, today announced that Huntington Bank (NASDAQ: HBAN) is using Trusteer Rapport and Trusteer Pinpoint to protect its commercial and retail banking customers against online fraud.
Trusteer's vast cybercrime prevention network, which spans hundreds of organizations and tens of millions of endpoints, automatically protects banks like Huntington against threats that first target other, often larger, Trusteer customers.
"Huntington is committed to safeguarding the security of our customers' accounts, which is why we are offering Trusteer as a free download from our website," said Jeff Dennes, senior vice president responsible for Huntington's online banking. "Trusteer Rapport protects our customers from account takeover and financial fraud and makes it extremely difficult for criminals to compromise online banking sessions, yet does not change the user experience for our customers."
The Huntington National Bank, founded in 1866, provides full-service commercial, small business, and consumer banking services in six Midwestern states: Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Indiana, West Virginia, and Kentucky. Huntington is using Trusteer to provide its customers with transparent endpoint protection against advanced malware and phishing attacks.
Trusteer Rapport provides several layers of protection that prevent malware from:
• Exploiting browser and add-on vulnerabilities
• Installing itself on the device
• Capturing credentials and personal information entered in the browser
• Initiating fraudulent transactions or tampering with in-process transactions
"Protecting computers used by commercial and retail customers for online banking is the frontline in the battle against cybercrime and fraud," said Rakesh Loonkar, president of Trusteer. "Trusteer Rapport and our Cybercrime Prevention Architecture enable Huntington to block sophisticated financial malware from compromising web banking sessions and provide fraud prevention controls that meet the new FFIEC guidelines."
