Transamerica Worksite Marketing Announces Three New RVPs For The West: Chris Story, Belinda Strombeck and Shawn Smith

Transamerica Worksite Marketing Announces Three New RVPs For The West: Chris Story, Belinda Strombeck and Shawn Smith

Transamerica Worksite Marketing Strengthens The Western Territory With Expansion of Proven Sales Leadership.

Little Rock, AR (PRWEB) May 3, 2006

As the Transamerica Western Territory continues to grow and flourish, Territory Vice President of Transamerica Worksite Marketing Joe Beckham announced the additions of three new regional vice presidents: Chris Story, Belinda Strombeck and Shawn Smith.

The latest additions to the Western Territory field force, which stretches from the Pacific Coast to the Louisiana Gulf Coast, not only assure that Transamerica Worksite Marketing is well positioned to leverage the strength of the Transamerica brand in this large region, but now has seasoned worksite professionals in place to service the growing distribution of voluntary benefits (http://www. transamericaworksite. com) for years to come.

Chris Story has been named Regional Vice President, Western Territory/North Texas. Responsible for the northern half of Texas within the Western Territory, Story is based in North Texas and brings two decades of industry experience to assist the growth of Transamerica Worksite Marketing in the voluntary benefits marketplace. Story began his career in the insurance business in July 1986 as Director of Training for Southland Life. In 1990 he was recruited to Great Southern Life, working for more than five years as Model Office Manager and managing GSL’s high-profile accounts, then took a Project Manager position with Universal Benefits Company where he was responsible for enrollments. He joins Transamerica Worksite Marketing with over 19 years of experience in the insurance industry, most recently a five-year tenor with Allstate Workplace Division, where he served as North Texas Regional Director and was responsible for recruiting, training and development of the North Texas Region. He currently lives in Dallas, Texas.

Belinda “Bel” Strombeck has been named Regional Vice President, Western Territory/South Texas. Responsible for the southern half of Texas, Strombeck brings a wealth of sales leadership to assist Transamerica Worksite Marketing’s efforts in maintaining a confident presence within this burgeoning region. A graduate of the University of California-Davis, Strombeck has spent the last eight years with American Fidelity and ING North America, having racked up an impressive list of achievements. In fact, her successes in building strong broker/client relationships, as well as identifying new business opportunities reads like a “Who’s Who” of top performers. Beginning in 1998, Strombeck joined American Fidelity Assurance Company, providing companies with voluntary and employer paid benefits through distribution relationships, as well as section 125 administration programs and health reimbursement plans. In 2004, she joined forces with ING North America Insurance Company’s Employee Benefits Division in Minneapolis where her primary focus was on larger employee cases, including Fortune 500 companies. From 2001-2004 Strombeck was the #1 annualized premium producer for American Fidelity, successfully managing a $2.3 million block of business for a Wells Fargo Company. At ING, she managed to generate $1.2 million in new premiums within her first nine months of being employed with the carrier. The addition of Strombeck provides the Western Territory with a wealth of experience in the southern piece of Texas and she will undoubtedly pay dividends for the producers and employer groups within her reach.

Shawn Smith has been named Regional Vice President, Western Territory/California. Responsible for the state of California, Smith brings 12 years of industry experience to assist the efforts of Transamerica Worksite Marketing in a continuing effort to successfully market a strong and balanced portfolio of voluntary benefits along the Pacific Coast. Immersed into the worksite marketplace in 1994, Smith worked as Sales Director for EOI Service Company in Orange County, where he successfully orchestrated more than 100 new client core and voluntary benefit enrollments. After nearly seven years of effectively interfacing with brokers and employer groups to insure productivity and quality, Smith joined UnumProvident as Senior Voluntary Benefit Consultant, working closely with the home office and brokers within the San Diego and Los Angeles sales offices and coordinating efforts with a number of western enrollment firms. He returned to EOI in 2002 as Senior Benefit Consultant where he generated voluntary benefit sales in excess of $1.6 million in 2004 and $1.9 million in 2005 within the territories of Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada. Transamerica Worksite Marketing is fortunate to have Smith and his extensive track record of sales experience in this opportune territory. Smith’s proven sales leadership will certainly be a great help as efforts are made to leverage the Transamerica brand and continue to grow distribution within this burgeoning marketplace. Smith is currently located in Trabuco Canyon, California.

Technology Firm Offers Less Expensive Health Insurance Through the Internet

Technology Firm Offers Less Expensive Health Insurance Through the Internet

New service provides comprehensive health benefits for the best price.

Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) November 24, 2006

The Boloto Group, an Arizona based technology firm, is introducing the Boloto Benefits Plan - a group insurance program that provides the best health benefits for the best price in the most innovative, simplified solution to the Nation's health care crisis.

"One of the top issues is that tens of millions of Americans are without healthcare insurance because they simply can't afford it," explained Gordon Sympson, President of Boloto Benefits. "We have addressed and resolved this issue once and for all by combining industry expertise, innovation and technology to create the best benefits for the best price. We took pieces of the most innovative programs to create one simple plan instead of many plans with many options. This represents a substantial cost reduction. By making the plan available through the Internet at www. bolotohealth. com, we have further lowered costs and eliminated unnecessary layers that increase both the cost of coverage and the complexity of existing products."

The old concept dictated many plans with many options that created bureaucracy, complexity and expenses. By combining the best elements of coverage and the best discounts from top Preferred Provider Organizations (PPO's), the new plan can provide the type of benefits and coverage people want and need. For example, the Boloto Benefits Plan has no deductible or coinsurance for in-network benefits. It was designed by a variety of experts drawn from throughout the benefits field to provide simplicity, while eliminating opportunities for fraud and abuse, which typically drive up health insurance costs.

"Clearly, the health care system in the U. S. faces huge challenges, with increased costs, reduced benefits and narrowed coverage," said Robert Donnelli, founder and CEO of the Boloto Group. "The Boloto Benefits Plan was created to respond to these challenges and solve the problem once and virtually for all by providing truly accessible health insurance and, with it, peace of mind." 

About the Boloto Group

The Boloto Group is a closely held, private technology and business solutions company incorporating services ranging from health and personal communications, to social environments and individual finance. Guided by the mission, "where innovation captures opportunity," the Company creates and delivers real-world channel solutions that touch the lives of virtually all.

ConnextionsHealth Introduces Member Transition Services® to Assist Health Plans in Efforts to Retain Members During Life Cycle Changes

ConnextionsHealth Introduces Member Transition Services® to Assist Health Plans in Efforts to Retain Members During Life Cycle Changes

Health insurers lose billions each year: Failing to retain plan members who leave due to early retirement, termination and loss of benefits.

Orlando, FL (Vocus) December 15, 2008

ConnextionsHealth today announced the creation of its Member Transition Services® - a portfolio of technology-driven processes and personal touch points - designed to assist health plans in their effort to mitigate the loss of group (or "commercial") plan members during major life cycle changes such as early retirement, job termination, "aging out" of dependent children, or elimination of health care coverage as a benefit by their employer.

According to a November 2008 study published by McKinsey & Company, most health insurers capture less than 10% of this group "transition" market, which is estimated at approximately $40 billion annually. A market analysis by L. E.K. Consulting suggests there are typically 8.1 million individuals who are in transition at all times, not factoring the current wave of corporate layoffs.

Insight into the significance of this market opportunity was provided at UnitedHealth Group's annual investors' meeting held on December 2nd. At this briefing, the nation's second largest health insurance carrier reported that several factors, including large employers that didn't renew their contracts for 2009, will lead to an enrollment decline of as many as 1.5 million commercial members for UnitedHealth Group in the coming year.

"What's most unfortunate about this missed opportunity," according to Ms. Leslie Pecci, Chief Operating Officer of ConnextionsHealth, "is that a significant percentage of health plan members are satisfied with their coverage, and would likely remain with their current health insurance providers if they were presented with viable alternatives at the appropriate times, and given easy access to decision-making tools."

Supporting this view, a recent Forrester Research survey of more than 2,000 individuals showed that 52% of both employer-sponsored and individually purchased health plan members were either satisfied or extremely satisfied with their coverage. Forrester also reported that fewer than 20% of respondents in both categories said that they were unlikely to switch health plans. Ms. Pecci noted, "In addition to missing incremental premium revenue, health insurers are losing their investments in member acquisition and in member service by not seeking to leverage the brand loyalty they have established with their satisfied customers."

To address this growing need to capture a greater portion of the "transitional" market segment, ConnextionsHealth has designed a disciplined process that identifies members who are experiencing life cycle changes; contacts and educates those members regarding their health insurance choices; and facilitates their decision-making process regarding coverage. "There is a very limited window of opportunity for health plans to retain these members," Ms. Pecci points out, "and our process enables plans to move quickly and cost-effectively before their members are lost."

In addition to speed, consumer education is also an important aspect of the Member Transition Services that ConnextionsHealth offers to its health plan clients. As an example, Ms. Pecci cited COBRA insurance, which provides displaced employees with post-employment coverage. "Many consumers don't know there can be lower-cost health insurance alternatives to COBRA that may be better suited to their new circumstances," Ms. Pecci said.

ConnextionsHealth's Member Transition Services include well-trained, licensed health insurance agents; online transaction capabilities including Click-to-Chat; automated voice and email technologies that enhance and expedite customer service; and predictive analytics that deliver actionable data about member behaviors and preferences. ConnextionsHealth has already begun working with two well-known health insurance plans on development of their member transition programs.

ZyDoc Medical Transcription Enhances the Practice Fusion EMR

ZyDoc Medical Transcription Enhances the Practice Fusion EMR

ZyDoc Medical Transcription has teamed up with Practice Fusion to offer doctors an integrated medical transcription solution with their electronic medical record (EMR) system. This partnership will allow doctors to continue to dictate as the preferred method of data capture, yet achieve all the extended benefits of the EMR. The combination of dictation and EMR has added benefits of rapid implementation and adoption by physicians and eliminates the risks of transition to EMR systems.

Hauppauge, New York (PRWEB) November 13, 2007

ZyDoc Medical Transcriptionannounced today it has formed a business alliance with Practice Fusion, Inc. ZyDoc will offer transcription services that are tightly integrated with Practice Fusion's EMR. Both systems are ASP based and will work from any Internet-connected computer.

With no change in work habits, doctors can dictate from any telephone to the TelDoc system or utilize handheld professional digital recorders. The dictation and records are tracked on the ZyDoc TrackDoc Internet site, similar to UPS packages, and are transcribed and returned within the required turnaround time as quickly as two hours. The highly accurate transcribed reports are available on the web and after review are automatically inserted into the Practice Fusion EMR system as part of the specific patient record.

Practice Fusion is a free, on-demand, no-risk Electronic Medical Records service. The solution for independent practitioners launched on October 23, 2007 with over 700 physicians. Practice Fusion's application is available over the Internet and does not require any licensing or hosting fees. Ryan Howard, CEO of Practice Fusion, explains that "Many EMR companies have added dictation to their products as an afterthought to increase user acceptance. Practice Fusion and ZyDoc have collaborated through the HL7 data standards to allow seamless integration of the transcription service and EMR output delivered from day one."

"This alliance offers doctors substantial advantages over current solutions," according to James Maisel, M. D., Chairman of ZyDoc. "From the doctor's perspective, data entry into an EMR is time consuming and not their area of expertise. When the patients fail to conform to the EMR template-based systems, data entry with repetitive clicks can be tedious and often take more than 10 minutes for a typical encounter. In contrast, dictation of comprehensive detailed encounters allows more efficient documentation within two minutes at 140 words a minute versus slower typing or handwriting speeds of 20 words per minute. With decreased reimbursements, physicians are striving to increase the number of patient encounters daily. Dictation remains the fastest and most detailed way to document the patient record. It remains the preferred method of data capture for physicians and is utilized by virtually all high-volume physicians."

Availability
Doctors can review the Practice Fusion EMR system at the Practice Fusion web site or sign up for a demo and enroll on the ZyDoc web site for a free trial of ZyDoc transcription services. ZyDoc Medical Transcription services are widely used by physicians of all specialties, groups, ambulatory surgery centers, hospitals, and RHIOs. More than 600 small physician practices have expressed interest for the Practice Fusion service since the beginning of 2007.

About ZyDoc Medical Transcription
Founded in 1993, ZyDoc is a full service, e-transcription company featuring HIPAA-compliant web-based records, e-signature, faxing, and legacy integration solutions. Physicians, transcription companies, and hospitals use these services to produce, organize, and distribute multi-specialty patient documentation. ZyDoc solves the PC literacy, data entry bottleneck, implementation, and cost issues that plague other clinical documentation and EMR companies. The company uses award-winning technology, workflow enhancements, and the Internet with ASP applications. In 2004, ZyDoc was ranked 3rd nationally in medical transcription by the Medical Records Institute and has also won awards from the medical informatics, speech recognition, and software industries. The technology platform is augmented by 24-hour U. S.-based support through the ZyDoc Operation Center. ZyDoc features unsurpassed highly accurate documents ensured by measurement, continuous quality improvement, and backed by a staff of U. S.-based level II and III transcription editors, proofreaders and a quality assurance team.

About Practice Fusion
Practice Fusion addresses the complexities and critical needs of today's healthcare environments by proving a revolutionary application and delivery model for physicians and patients at no cost. Practice Fusion offers an integrated, on-demand healthcare platform delivered in a software-as-a-service model that eliminates the complexities associated with licensing, implementation, integration and support usually experienced with traditional enterprise software solutions. Practice Fusion dramatically reduces the cost to the practice while enabling providers to deliver the highest level of care possible to their patients.

The global agreement designates the NUTRILITE brand as the "Official Nutrition Supplement of AC Milan" and provides the brand with a hybrid of multi-media and promotional rights to the club over the next two years.

"Equally important to the marketing and media benefits we secured with AC Milan is the ability to be on the forefront of cutting-edge scientific research and sports training of world-class athletes through the Milanello Training Center," said Amway Chief Marketing Officer Candace Matthews.

As part of this campaign, the NUTRILITE brand's Goal by Goal Program has committed to donating $10,000 (USD) to the AC Milan Foundation for every goal Ronaldinho scores in Italy.

"Throughout the process of structuring this agreement with Nutrilite, we quickly learned that we share very like-minded principles and philosophies of doing business. We're both leaders in our respective fields and the corporate citizenship demonstrated by the Ronaldinho Goal by Goal campaign is a natural extension to our ongoing efforts with the AC Milan Foundation," said A.

Student Travelers to Receive Special Discount Rates

Student Travelers to Receive Special Discount Rates

Students studying abroad will benefit from new reduced rates for travel medical insurance.

Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) October 22, 2008

Travelers Trust (http://www. travelerstrust. com) has announced a new program to help student travelers. The travel insurance website, which began operations a year ago, is already a leading provider in the international travel insurance industry. The site's parent company, Legend Travelers, believes that international students have a definite need and can greatly benefit from the Travelers Trust plan, especially during the upcoming holiday season.

Travelers Trust knows that being a student can be tough, and being a student a long way from home can be even more difficult. The Travelers Trust Student Insurance Discount Program (http://www. travelerstrust. com/student-insurance. asp) is deigned to make student life that much easier. It's difficult enough just being far away from home, and many students also feel the pinch of limited finances. And with the economic problems facing most of us today, the company felt it appropriate to do all it could to help students traveling to see their family and friends for the Holidays. Every break that they can get will help them."

To qualify for the Special rate, students need only enter the code-word "Student" (without the quotes) in the Promo field on the website's Instant Travel Insurance Quote form. The Travelers Trust Student Discount will automatically be applied to their quote.

The Travelers Trust plan offers coverage for medical expenses incurred while traveling or living abroad, as well as for emergency evacuation, trip interruption, lost checked luggage, travel assistance and other travel-related services. Benefits are also provided for pregnancy complications, accidental death or dismemberment, losses from acts of terrorism or natural disaster, and repatriation of remains. Additionally, up to two children under the age of ten receive full coverage at no additional cost when traveling with both parents, making this one of the most comprehensive travel insurance policies in the industry.

About the company:
Legend Travelers is a leading international travel health insurance company (http://www. legendtravelers. com) with clients in over 100 countries. More than 60 percent of its customers are U. S. citizens who travel abroad and buy the insurance prior to travel, but travelers may also purchase the coverage after their trip is already in progress.

Calcium Powder NutraCal Not Inhibited by Acid Reflux Medications

Calcium Powder NutraCal Not Inhibited by Acid Reflux Medications

Calcium can still be absorbed by people suffering from acid reflux, with a calcium powder developed by Pharmacist Tom Kotronis of Tampa Bay Nutraceutical Company. A recent AMA report found that people taking antacids could not absorb enough calcium. But NutraCal has been found to be effective with heartburn medications.

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) January 9, 2007

People suffering from acid reflux can still absorb calcium (http://www. nutracal. com/) with a powder developed by Pharmacist Tom Kotronis of Tampa Bay Nutraceutical Company, counter to concerns raised in a recent AMA report. NutraCal calcium powder has been found to be effective with heartburn medications.

NutraCal is a calcium gluconate and magnesium combination which is not affected by over the counter (OTC) antacids, prescription proton pump inhibitors, or H2 blockers, like Prilosec, Nexium, Protonix, Aciphex, etc.

A critical, recent report by the AMA concerning increased risk of hip fractures for people using prescribed or over the counter antacid products has caused severe concern among users and prescribers alike. Because these products reduce the acid in the stomach, most common calcium products cannot be properly absorbed, adding to the calcium crisis in the United States and abroad. This crisis is setting people up for potential serious health problems due to the lack of calcium and magnesium as they age.

NutraCal effervescent calcium powder is composed of calcium gluconate, and is in a ready to absorb form before it enters the body for digestion. This allows the body to immediately absorb the calcium regardless of the amount of stomach acid present.

Tom Kotronis, founder NutraCal, says, “We have had this theory for many years, but this study just proves what many of us have thought all along. We are delighted that this theory has now been verified so that we can educate and help people.”

Also, stated Mr. Kotronis, “One of my key reasons for developing NutraCal was to offer a solution for the millions of people taking antacid products, so that they can have both relief from their heart burn and acid reflux (http://www. nutracal. com/), but also get the calcium they need for bone health.”

With NutraCal. People do not have to choose between their acid reflux medicine and bone health, they can have them both.

NutraCal is available online at www. nutracal. com and fine retailers nationwide. More information concerning NutraCal and proton pump inhibitors can be found at www. nutracal. com.

Founder of Tampa bay Nutraceutical Company, and developer of NutraCal, Tom Kotronis, RPh is a popular guest on many health and wellness shows, and is available for interviews or to answer questions concerning calcium deficiency and the effect antacids have on this crisis.

Global Cardio Care Gift of Life Program Enables Man to Drop 158 Lbs with EECP® Treatment Plus Diet, Exercise

Global Cardio Care Gift of Life Program Enables Man to Drop 158 Lbs with EECP® Treatment Plus Diet, Exercise

EECP is a safe, FDA-approved (for angina pectoris and congestive heart failure) cardiovascular treatment that does not require surgery or medication. It is said to be a natural bypass; new collaterals grow around arterial blockages.

Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) April 28, 2009

Global Cardio Care® Inc., the nation’s largest physician practice management company specializing in delivery of EECP® treatment, has helped Brian Burton, 39, drop 158 lbs through the Global Cardio Care Gift of Life Program featuring Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP®) along with exercise and improved diet.

Before Brian visited Global Cardio Care Centers in late 2007 in Los Angeles, he weighed 408 lbs. Dependent on a wheel chair, Brian could not wear shoes and only fit in sweats. He drank high levels of alcohol; ate foods with highest saturated fat, trans fats and sodium; fast foods; and snacks. He ate no vegetables or fruit. He had heart arrhythmia, angina, pre-diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. When Brian arrived at Global Cardio Care Centers, he suffered dizziness and fatigue, and was extremely short of breath after minimal activity with no ability to exercise.

Global Cardio Care Centers delivers upwards of 20,000 EECP treatment hours annually. People visit the physician clinic seeking treatment for cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, renal failure, stroke, high blood pressure, macular degeneration, erectile dysfunction, Parkinson’s disease and other illnesses including multiple sclerosis and sports enhancement such as endurance and performance improvement.

Staffed by internal medicine physicians, cardiologists, lifestyle physicians and certified EECP technologists, Global Cardio Care Centers evaluates everyone to determine whether EECP treatment can positively affect their illness.

“At Global Cardio Care Centers, physicians who deliver EECP look for treatment benefits for diseases beyond end-stage cardiovascular disease,” said Sara Soulati, CEO and President of Global Cardio Care. “EECP is considered an end-stage cardiovascular treatment; we know from experience that it positively influences many other diseases from peripheral vascular disease and erectile dysfunction to diabetes and obesity.”

For one year, Brian went diligently to Global Cardio Care Centers to experience EECP. He enrolled in the Global Cardio Care Gift of Life Program™ developed by Sara Soulati, the nation’s leading authority since 1996 on the practice of EECP.

Results:
During Brian’s physician-monitored care at Global Cardio Care Centers, he:
 Reduced or eliminated his modifiable risk factors (the ones he could change) for disease/  Lost 158 pounds. EECP elevated energy levels so Brian could exercise longer and harder every day and naturally lose weight  His physician eliminated high blood pressure medication and is naturally maintaining a healthy blood pressure of 122/86 with a heart rate between 58 and 63 bpm.  Has blood sugar at a healthy 62 with cholesterol of 144 and triglycerides of 68.  Alleviated chest pain and adjusted heart rhythm to normal.

EECP is known to:
 Prompt growth of new arteries to naturally bypass blockages  Improve performance of the endothelium, the lining of blood vessels throughout the body which enhances velocity of blood flow  Lower blood pressure without need to further medicate  Reduce or eliminate chest discomfort as a result of heart disease.  Improve debilitating symptoms of stroke such as motor skills, speech and walking.  Improve circulation of oxygen-rich blood to vital organs, like passive exercise.  Enhance stamina and endurance for exercise and influence more restful sleep

About Global Cardio Care® Inc.:
Global Cardio Care, Inc. manages physician practices specializing in EECP treatment and delivers such business services as billings, claims and clinic operations. In addition, the company manages patient education, marketing, and patient recruitment/retention. Since 1996, longer than anyone in the country, Sara Soulati has worked in the field of EECP treatment. As CEO and president of Global Cardio Care, she has developed a full range of policy and procedures for implementation of EECP treatment for a wide range of diseases, not just end stage cardiovascular disease.

TrustDefender Demonstrates Sophisticated HTML and JavaScript Injection of Carberp

TrustDefender Demonstrates Sophisticated HTML and JavaScript Injection of Carberp

After revealing the true threat of new Trojan Carberp, TrustDefender Labs has released an in-depth analysis into how the malware infiltrates websites and the details of its operation. Carberp hit the scene with a big bang last month targeting financial institutions with transactional two factor authentication schemes. The new Labs report reveals how cyber criminals have developed sophisticated configuration files and JavaScript methods, which Carberp is using with remarkable skill to target banking websites.

(PRWEB) December 10, 2010

After revealing the true threat of new Trojan Carberp, TrustDefender Labs has released an in-depth analysis into how the malware infiltrates websites and the details of its operation. Carberp hit the scene with a big bang last month targeting financial institutions with transactional two factor authentication schemes. The new Labs report reveals how cyber criminals have developed sophisticated configuration files and JavaScript methods, which Carberp is using with remarkable skill to target banking websites.

TrustDefender Lab’s most recent analysis of the Carberp variant exposes the complex configuration systems used, shows how the website mechanism works and highlights the impressive JavaScript injection code used by cyber criminals.

Andreas Baumhof, CTO of TrustDefender comments, “Today’s Trojans are evolving to become more than just an enabler to get sophisticated HTML into the currently viewed website. In this way Carberp follows the same principle as all other transactional Trojans such as Zeus, Gozi, Spyeye and Silon. What makes Carberp so effective is the threat does not come from the malware itself. The real threat comes from the configuration file and the related resources such as the highly modular and sophisticated JavaScript inclusions.”

The fraudsters behind Carberp spend considerable time not just on the configuration file, but also making sure they have a flexible and dynamic method in place to compromise even elaborate two factor authentication schemes. Their aim goes beyond just information stealing where the stolen data is sent to a different location. The bad guys employ a forceful method to send and receive information to bypass even dynamic password schemes. Dynamically generated JavaScript will ensure that Carberp is customised for the targeted financial institution and operation (e. g. wire transfer).

What are the sophisticated Javacript characteristics being used by Carberp?
 Carberp features heavily dynamic JavaScript hosted on a valid HTTPS (SSL) websites  This JavaScript is designed to get around the most sophisticated two factor authentication code (such as transactional hardware tokens)  Carberp demonstrates how cyber criminals are developing Trojans to create sophisticated configuration files and JavaScript. Theoretically this can be used with any type of Trojan of choice whether that is Carberp, Zeus, Spyeye or Gozi  The sophistication of the injected HTML is incredibly high. User experience specialists are employed to do this as the key is to make it look legitimate

Andreas Baumhof continues “The evolution of Trojans such as Carberp highlights how Trojans use complex behaviour to employ intelligent guises and commit fraudulent activity. Financial institutions and enterprises need to provide appropriate security, beyond traditional AV software to reduce the risks of fraudulent activity.”

TrustDefender will fully detect and protect against Carberp. The TrustDefender online transaction security solution was designed to protect the user and the financial institution right from the start.

TrustDefender explained:
 TrustDefender solves the issues facing financial institutions where an increasing percentage of their customer base connects to online banking services with malware infected computers.  Furthermore financial institutions have no visibility in real-time to see whether their customers have taken care of their computers and therefore the enterprise cannot distinguish between an infected or clean computer. This leaves the financial institution and the user at risk.  TrustDefender’s unique technology, evaluates the security health risk of a computing device, allowing the business to detect the ever increasing sophistication of malware, immediately act and stop a potential threat through the application of business rules and policies in real-time before any authentication process begins.  TrustDefender provides key information to online enterprises including financial institutions, while giving the enterprise risk manager a real-time risk profile of the endpoint computers access their website.  TrustDefender can be easily integrated with existing and older risk management engines to enhance the capabilities of these technologies.  TrustDefender provides the enterprise with the ability to not only protect the customer but also notify the customer of any security threats and advise them how to deal with any potential risk. The Safe&Secure Mode will make sure a customer can always securely login and fix the problem at a later date.
