Trusted Knight Protector

Trusted Knight Protector

Protector™, for all your security needs

The greatest security challenge facing banks today is how to safely interact with online clients despite the fact that key-logging malware is likely resident on customer PCs/devices. Protector™ disables the key-logging functionality of any malware variants independent of the need for antivirus updates. Protector™ disables the data-stealing capabilities of malware until antivirus can remove the malware—online banking accounts remain safe in the interim.

The Protector™ product line is fully transparent to users

Banks do not own or control their customers’ PCs and are unlikely to mandate any security controls onto customer PCs. To successfully deploy an anti-malware product to banking customers on an “opt-in” basis, the product must be virtually transparent. Protector™ is simple to install (in seconds), has no hardware minimums, and requires minimal technical support. In addition, Protector™ requires no user interaction or configuration and collects no user information from bank customers. Best of all, Protector™’s opt-in rate for banking customers is a remarkable 70%. Protector™ can be quickly deployed across a bank’s customer base to dramatically reduce the fraud losses resulting from key-logging malware.

The trusted knight design approach

Trusted Knight provides security software solutions focused on defeating crimeware attacks. Crimeware has become so sophisticated that traditional detect-and-remove strategies of antivirus are no longer a viable approach. The staff at Trusted Knight recognized the inadequacies in available security technology in addressing crimeware attacks and designed a new approach to defeat crimeware attacks. Instead of attempting to detect or remove crimeware, the Trusted Knight team designed solutions that disable crimeware functions to eliminate crimeware's ability to collect information. Without that browser-entered data, the criminals are unable to perpetrate crime.
