Conn.-based Fairfield County Bank is moving to protect its business clients by now offering them the IronKey Trusted Access for Banking. Trusted Access isolates online banking customers from financial malware, including key loggers, man-in-the-middle attacks and DNS attacks.
Trusted Access takes customers directly to Fairfield’s Web site and prevents visiting fake ones introduced by phishing or other scams. Following recommendation of the National Automated Clearinghouse Association and the FBI, Trusted Access separates users and their banking sessions from their potentially compromised desktop and applications.
Users simply connecting their Trusted Access security device to the USB port of their PC computer Trusted Access automatically launches a protected, virtualized Web browser. The Trusted Access Browser starts at the bank-defined home page and users can only navigate to bank authorized sites.
A secure, encrypted connection to online banking is made through the IronKey Trusted Network. This locks out man-in-the-middle and DNS address redirect attacks, and encrypted keyboard input protects users from key loggers while entering authentication credentials and other sensitive data.
