Online banking is easy, convenient and risky. In spite of all its benefits and conveniences, online banking can be a perfect trap for an uninformed user not aware of safety measures to be followed while banking online. To protect customers and banks from this situation, Total Networx has introduced eBankSafe – a tool makes use of a safe browser on an account holder’s machine that offers dedicated safety for online banking sessions.
The eBankSafe secure browser makes use of a type of sandbox technology which safeguards the browser and data entered into it from infections on the computer. In tests, even when malware such as Zeus was installed on a PC, the malware could not interfere with the banking transaction.
Total Networx provides a range of security services to companies of all sizes and safeguards the entire network. This includes protecting the perimeter, important internal assets, data, remote users, customers and partners. The services provided by the company assist users in complying with GLBA, PCI (News - Alert), SOX and HIPAA requirements.
“In order to effectively combat corporate account takeover and electronic wire fraud, banks need to implement effective controls at the account level,” said Ryan Elmer, Total Networx account manager, in a statement. “This is what protects the transaction at its weakest point – on the customer’s computer. The best approach to online security is to assume that the PC is infected and take the necessary steps to render malware inoperable during the banking session.”
