At Tompkins VIST Bank, your security is our top priority.

That’s why we have partnered with Trusteer, an IBM Company, and leading expert in financial security, to offer Trusteer Rapport online fraud protection software, customized to protect users of Tompkins VIST Bank Online Banking – at no cost to you.

Trusteer Rapport is online fraud and identity theft protection software that protects your User ID, password, and other information from fraudsters.  It also helps prevent malware and fraudulent websites from stealing this sensitive information.

Trusteer Rapport is a lightweight security software solution that protects web communication between enterprises, such as banks, and their customers.  It implements a completely new approach to protecting customers. By locking down customer browsers and creating a tunnel for safe communication with the online website, Trusteer Rapport prevents Man-in-the-Browser malware and Man-in-the-Middle attacks. It also prevents phishing via website authentication to ensure that account credentials are passed to genuine sources only.

Industry analysts at Online Banking Report described Trusteer Rapport as “...a major boost in fraud protection...” and named Trusteer Rapport “Best of the Web.”
