Antivirus: A False Sense of Security
There's something that the antivirus industry doesn't want you to know: their products aren't that effective at stopping sophisticated viruses. Studies show that antivirus software detects only about 25% of the most popular viruses (also known as malware) currently being emailed to people. That's because the virus creators move too quickly. By the time antivirus products are able to block new viruses, it is often too late.
Weak Link in Security
Despite these safeguards, BCT cannot directly protect customers from the risk of themselves and the way in which they use their computers. Your computer and the applications you use can expose you to potential risks.
Signature Detection Fails
To identify new malware, antivirus solutions calculate a special signature for each incoming file and compare it to a dictionary of known virus signatures. Antivirus cannot defend against malware unless a file sample has already been obtained and signature created. The problem is that malware authors are very clever – able to create millions of files, each with a unique signature every month. The same malware can be masked in many different files, each with its own signature that is unknown to antivirus. Antivirus solutions take days, sometime even weeks, to detect new financial malware signatures and remove them. However, fraud occurs hours after a new malware file with an unknown signature is released. So by the time the antivirus provider eventually cleans the computer of the malware, it may already be too late to prevent fraud from occurring.
The Internet: Convenient for Cybercriminals
The internet offers massive advantages, conveniences and opportunities. But with such access, various security risks are unearthed. Taking this into consideration, BCT takes exhaustive steps to protect the information transmitted during online banking sessions. For example, BCT safeguards confidential data sent over the internet so that it is not retrieved or modified by unauthorized parties.
The Trusteer Rapport Approach
Trusteer's innovative technology picks up where conventional security software fails. From the moment it is installed, Trusteer Rapport protects your computer and mitigates financial malware infections. Trusteer also communicates with BCT, allowing our security team to take immediate action against changes in the threat landscape.
Trusteer Rapport doesn't look for file signatures or examine what the file is, but rather what the file does. Trusteer Rapport detects the malware installation process and breaks it, keeping the computer clean. Even if malware managed to install on the computer, Trusteer Rapport detects and blocks any attempt to compromise the browser and your online banking session. By stopping the malware's bad behavior, Trusteer Rapport is able to provide protection above and beyond what is possible with antivirus. This is why BCT has chosen to partner with Trusteer to offer our customers the best protection against financial fraud.
Extra Layer of Protection
Trusteer Rapport is optimized to stop financial malware and preventing financial fraud. But that doesn't mean you should discard your antivirus solutions entirely, since many other viruses exist. They will slow down your computer or interfere with your work, but they will not attempt to steal money from you. Your antivirus solutions should be used to protect you from these types of viruses.
