Trusteer , a security firm best known for creating anti-keylogging and anti-malware software add-ons for business banking customers, is launching a new enterprise application designed to prevent data theft through zero-day exploits . The new software, Apex , is run on in-office desktop computers.
“Advanced malware protection continues to be a losing battle for enterprise organizations because malware is constantly evolving to evade detection and security controls require constant care that enterprises can’t afford,” said Trusteer CEO Mickey Boodaei in a press release.
The company's flagship product, Rapport, is run as a separate client application by business customers at Bank of America , PNC , Santander , and other large banks. While its use is widespread, it has been criticized for slowing computer performance .
