When it comes to online fraud, sometimes antivirus software and a firewall aren’t enough of a deterrent. Criminals are always on the lookout for ways to bypass these defenses, making your personal information vulnerable. To help protect you online, The Commerce Bank of Oregon is offering free security software called Rapport, from the financial security experts at Trusteer.
Rapport is a security software application that provides online identity theft and online transaction protection for consumers. You can use Rapport to protect your web browser sessions with any website that contains private or personal information. Rapport is entirely transparent and does not require you to change the way you work or sign into these websites. It does not require any configuration or maintenance; you simply install and browse safely.
Rapport’s protection is based on a revolutionary technology that is entirely different from the technologies used by other desktop security solutions. Rapport protects your username, password, and other sensitive login information and prevents malware and fraudulent websites from stealing this information. Rapport also protects your communication and prevents malware from tampering with your transaction (for example, transferring money from your bank account to the attacker’s bank account).
How does Rapport protect you?
Rapport works with your antivirus and firewall software, and is not designed to replace these valuable tools. Conventional security software blocks known attacks, but can’t keep up with sophisticated new ones. Trusteer’s innovative technology picks up where conventional security software fails.
