Trusted Knight nobly unveils Protector Air to fight fraud
Digital data security firm Trusted Knight has launched Protector Air in its noble quest to dispatch unruly ruffians that partake in cyberattacks and fraud, reports David Penn at Finovate.
The cloud-based solution deploys in-stream between consumers and businesses to defend against such attacks. The solution is capable of protecting against a variety of fraudulent activity and malware including rootkits, man-in-the-middle browser attacks, session hijacking, and account takeovers.
“The conventional security approach has been to protect the endpoint and the web application separately using two distinct solutions,” Trusted Knight CEO and founder Joseph Patanella explains.
He adds: “What we’ve enabled is the modern paradigm of accepting that there will be compromised endpoints as well as attacks on web servers, but secure business can still take place if each touch point of each transaction is protected.”
Protector Air secures three cyberattack vectors: protecting websites from direct infrastructure, framework, and application logic attacks; protecting users from endpoint and browser-based malware such as keyloggers and Trojans; and protecting the communications itself from service disruption caused by distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.
With an anti-fraud intelligence layer to protect transactions, Protector Air’s technology is unified, agentless, turnkey, cloud-based, and platform independent.
Trusted Knight is headquartered in Annapolis, Maryland and was founded in 2010.
Last autumn/fall, the company forged a partnership with channel enablement specialist, eTECH Channel to “help it better bring its full product suite of anti-fraud solutions to market faster and more efficiently”.
The company secured Series B funding in 2016 (the amount of the investment and the name of the investor were undisclosed) and has made one major acquisition, the purchase of Massachusetts-based cybersecurity firm, Sentrix.
