Trusteer, the leading provider of endpoint cybercrime prevention solutions, today announced that BankAnnapolis, a subsidiary of Annapolis Bancorp, Inc. (ANNB), has selected Trusteer Rapport for Online Banking to protect both commercial and consumer accounts from malware and phishing attacks that target end user devices used to access online accounts and perform ACH transactions.
"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.
