How they describe themselves: Future ecommerce depends on businesses being able to safely interact with online customers that are using malware-infested PCs and mobile devices. Trusted Knight is a security software company that creates simple-to-install, patented software solutions that block malware-based key-logging and man-in-the-browser (web-inject) attacks against customer PCs and mobile devices. With Trusted Knight software solutions installed, browser-entered information such as online banking credentials and credit card information are protected from key-logging malware (i.e., crimeware) attacks. Trusted Knight solutions are highly transparent to customers and block crimeware functioning pending crimeware removal by antivirus products.
How they describe their product/innovation: Protector is designed to be quickly deployed to the large and diverse customer bases of businesses and financial institutions to immediately reduce fraud losses. Protector is extremely lightweight and can be easily integrated into existing security products. There is no minimally-required hardware configuration, no customer configuration or interaction necessary, and installation causes no stability issues or conflicts with other resident software. Rather than attempting to detect malware (a nearly impossible task), Protector simply blocks malware functioning to prevent criminals from getting the data they need to commit crimes. Protector achieves a remarkable 70+% install rate on a customer “opt-in” basis.
