IBM Security Trusteer solutions

Trusteer was my first client when I just started my business and I'm proud to say that I had the honer to work side-by-side with such a professional team.

First contact was made just a few days after I stumbled upon a very interesting security research from the University of Cambridge that pointed out a certain cyber threat.
At the same time I accidentally met the head of their development group and mentioned this research and talked to him about it. He then replied that they already implemented a protection to prevent this fraud in their product.
I love developing security products that I really believe in so I expressed my honest interest in the product and after that we started working together as I was put in charge of any fixes and additions to the UI, first in their website, and later I became involved with the development of their product - Trusteer Rapport.

Trusteer Rapport is designed to protect users from financial malware and phishing attacks. The software includes anti-phishing measures and attempts to prevent malicious screen scraping and to protect users against the following forms of attacks: man-in-the-browser, man-in-the-middle, session hijacking and screen capturing.
Various banks were interested in distributing the software to their customers.

Rapport can be managed through a console. The goal was to create a cool console, which can attract users to browse it yet be easy to understand and operate.
Also since it was a new and unfamiliar product it was very important to gain users trust, and we invested deep though on this. For example, we decided to emphasize the business name during the process of uninstall assuming customers are more reluctant to de-install something that is part of the bank's security architecture.

Trusteer was acquired in September 2013 and it is now a Boston-based computer security division of IBM.
