Safe Transactions on Infected Computers

  • October 20, 2008

You’re about to go online to make a financial transaction, but you don’t realize that your computer has been breached by malicious hackers: it’s loaded with malware and spyware. Verdasys believes that its tool, SiteTrust, can intervene at this point to keep your identity safe. SiteTrust buries itself deep in a computer’s operating system, where it can take fundamental control of most of the machine’s operations. Malware can’t attempt to interfere in an online transaction without SiteTrust’s knowing.

Product: SiteTrust
Cost: Free to customers through participating financial institutions
