Trusteer Rapport

My bank has recommended as follows:

....... online security is as important to us as it is to you. To help enhance your computer's protection we've partnered with Trusteer to offer our customers free Trusteer Rapport security software. It's easy to install and does not require any registration, computer restarts, or commitments. It takes only a few minutes to download and all future software updates are automatic at no charge.

Benefits

  • FREE to download and includes all future software updates
  • Ensures you are genuinely on our site - versus a fake site - even if your computer has a virus
  • Prevents your login ID, passwords, and other sensitive information from being stolen by malware and fraudulent websites
  • Protects your browser when communicating with our website and prevents malware from tampering with your transactions
  • Trusteer Rapport works with, but does not replace, your anti-virus software and firewall

Is Trusteer Rapport compatible with Norton Security and is there any benefit from running both?

Re: Trusteer Rapport

Trusteer Rapport is compatible with Norton, although there have been occasional conflicts that have happened when one or the other program has had an update that broke something.  If you notice, most of the benefits of TR are geared towards minimizing financial damage that might happen if your PC has already been infected with malware.  Since you have Norton, that should not really be much of a concern.  Banks push TR because many of their customers do not properly secure their computers and the banks generally take the hit for any losses due to fraudulent online transactions.  It is actually more of a protection for the bank than it is for you.

I wouldn't say that you need the extra protection, but there would be no harm in trying it if you are curious.  If it slows down your system or creates other issues, you can certainly uninstall it and be no less safe.  It isn't something I would consider "essential."

Re: Trusteer Rapport

Hello

If you do run into a conflict, please let both companies know about the issue. That way both companies can work on a solution.

Thanks.

Re: Trusteer Rapport

I have tried it and have found that it very seriously slows down my system, and have uninstalled it.  I have advised IBM of this by way of the comments requested on uninstall.  Has anyone any comments?  The main reports that I received during the short use of it were about possible key logging.

Re: Trusteer Rapport

System slowness was a early complaint about TR.  Apparently, it is still an issue.
