Rapport protects transactions from being tampered with and private information from being stolen
Newburyport, MA " March 19, 2009 " DNSstuff (www.dnsstuff.com) today announced in partnership with Trusteer that it is offering Rapport, a tool that protects your transactions from being tampered with and private information from being stolen, through its website, dnsstuff.com.

Rapport is an easy-to-use browser plug-in that provides users with a secure connection to any online site they log into, protecting their most valuable online assets " login credentials. "Any tool that secures the connection between your desktop and any site you have to log into is truly a real benefit. Protecting your user credentials should be every consumer's top priority, Rapport makes that automatic! Rapport is proven, lightweight and effective," said Paul Parisi, CTO at DNSstuff.com.

Malware is growing at an alarming rate. Today, malware programs are capable of bypassing the most advanced authentication and security controls implemented by most websites. If this occurs, your most vulnerable assets are at risk including your login credentials. Rapport protects login credentials and transactions, from desktop to website, even if a computer is infected with malware.

How it works The Trusteer Rapport product secures personally identifiable information (PII) when users conduct business online with financial institutions and other goods and services providers. It acts like a vault inside a user's web browser to protect online transactions from malicious software resident on customer computers, prevents redirection to fraudulent websites, and locks down communications during transmission. Rapport protects users against the following forms of attacks: Man-in-the-browser, Man-in-the-middle, session hijacking, screen capturing and pharming.

Added layer of protection When it comes to identity fraud, even antivirus software and firewalls aren't enough. That's because criminals can easily bypass these defenses, to prey on your login details. Rapport shields your online details and safeguards your identity. It works in tandem with your antivirus and security software.
