The $161 million Treasury Department Federal Credit Union in Washington, D.C., will be offering its members online banking protection from malware with a free Web browser add-on from Boston-based Trusteer.
The Trusteer Rapport solution requires no configuration to install and runs in the background, detecting and removing malware that could be used to take over a computer and steal identifying information and funds, the company said.
It also will allow the 23,000-member TDFCU to comply with new FFIEC guidelines that take effect in January, the company and credit union said.
“The growing volume of attacks and account takeover activity within the financial services industry, coupled with the new FFIEC guidelines prompted us to add an additional layer of security to our online banking platform,” stated Alfred Scipio, President/CEO of TDFCU.
“Rapport enables us to lock down the browser during online banking sessions to help protect TDFCU and our members from fraud, phishing attacks, and financial theft,” Scipio said.
Trusteer said its solutions are now in place at more than 175 financial institutions, including more than 15 credit unions.
