Introducing: Trusteer Rapport
Trusteer Rapport is lightweight security software that protects your online banking communication from being stolen by criminals. Trusteer Rapport is highly recommended by National Penn as an additional layer of security to any anti-virus or security software you already use. By protecting your internet connection and creating a tunnel for safe communication with your bank’s online website, Trusteer Rapport blocks malicious attempts to steal money from your account.
Why Your Current Computer Security is Not Enough
It takes days or even weeks for anti-virus vendors to identify and remove new variants of financial malware. Until they manage to do so, the malware is still undetected on your computer. Cyber criminals can attack your bank account minutes after you get infected with financial malware and way before this malware is detected and removed by your anti-virus.
Trusteer Rapport - Dedicated Online Banking Security
Trusteer Rapport takes a unique approach that adds real value on top of your current security software. When you connect to your bank online, Trusteer Rapport does three main things in the background to make it extremely difficult for criminals to target you:
- Rapport verifies that you are really connected to the bank’s genuine website as opposed to a fake website created by criminals. Although this sounds trivial, it’s not obvious that you reach a genuine website when you type your bank’s address into your web browser
- Once verification is complete, Rapport locks down communication between your computer and the bank’s website. This prevents criminals from hijacking your online connection with the bank
- Rapport protects your computer and internet connection by creating a tunnel for safe communication with your bank, preventing criminals from using malware to steal your log-in data and tamper with transactions
