Trusteer claims that:
- Trusteer Rapport verifies that you are really connected to the genuine website as opposed to a fake website created by criminals. Surprisingly, it is not trivial to reach a genuine website when you type the website address into your web browser.
- Once verification is complete, Trusteer Rapport locks down communication between your computer and the protected website. This prevents criminals from hijacking your online connection with the bank.
- Trusteer Rapport protects your computer and Internet connection by creating a tunnel for safe communication with your bank or enterprise, preventing criminals from using malware to steal your log-in data and tamper with financial transactions or information exchanges.
Doesn't HTTPS do all of this for you? It seems to me that Trusteer adds another layer of encryption to supported (mostly banking) websites, is that correct? Ignoring the other stuff that it claims to do, is it worthwhile?
