Trusteer Named Rookie Security Company of the Year Finalist in 2009 SC Awards Program

Trusteer, the customer protection company for online businesses, today announced that it has been named a finalist for the ‘Rookie Security Company of the Year’ in the 2009 SC Awards program. The SC Awards recognize outstanding achievement in information technology (IT) security. Trusteer was selected from hundreds of entries, and is one of only five finalists in this highly coveted category. A panel of 18 leading chief security officers from major corporations and large public sector organizations will select the winner.

“Being named a finalist for ‘Rookie Security Company of the Year’ is a tremendous achievement and honor for Trusteer,” said Mickey Boodaei, CEO of Trusteer. “Our unique approach to securing consumer data during online sessions with financial institutions and other web businesses assumes the desktop is infected with malware. The Rapport product is changing the way people think about web security.”

The annual SC Awards have recognized security’s key contributors and outstanding products for more than a decade. As the industry’s preeminent awards program, individuals, brands and products shortlisted address not only the challenges prominent today, but also the emerging threat landscape of tomorrow.

Winners of this year’s SC Awards will be announced at a gala dinner and award ceremony to be held in San Francisco on April 21, 2009.

About Rapport

Trusteer Rapport complements existing desktop security products and strong authentication solutions by taking a new approach – protecting the consumer’s transactions even when their computers may already be infected with malware. Rapport creates a “secure-pipe” within the computer that protects all information flowing between the machine and the destination web site. This “secure pipe” prevents malware from stealing confidential information from the consumer, conducting unintended transactions on the consumer's behalf, or tricking the consumer to enter their private banking or e-commerce credentials into look-alike websites.
