July 2, 2012

FREDERICK, Md., July 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — According to industry and law enforcement reports, phishing and malware attacks have more than doubled in the last year, resulting in potential losses exceeding $1 billion. Cybercriminals are using increasingly sophisticated methods to access accounts, steal sensitive information and originate fraudulent transactions. In order to minimize the risk of identity theft and bank account fraud, Frederick County Bank now offers IronKey Trusted Access, a state-of-the-art financial malware protection solution. The world’s most security-conscious companies, including defense, intelligence and civilian government agencies, already entrust their security to IronKey Trusted Access.

FCB Chief Technology Officer Jay House explains, “While we maintain secure FCB online banking and bill pay sites, if a user’s computer has been compromised they may be vulnerable to attacks from malware, host applications and other hacker ploys. Our IronKey Trusted Access solution offers clients the ultimate protection against such attacks, theft of online credentials, and protection of assets and financial information.” FCB recommends IronKey Trusted Access for both individuals and businesses that engage in online financial transactions to ensure that their information and assets remain private and secure.

FCB IronKey Trusted Access works by creating a secure and private “tunnel” browser connection, independent of the user’s computer and operating system, to provide a tamper-proof online environment that encrypts users’ keystrokes and information to prevent cyber attacks and identity theft. Once the IronKey security application has been downloaded, users are also able to access many of the most frequently used payment or information-sensitive websites. Current sites accessible through IronKey are listed on fcbmd.com’s Site Map under the Trusted Access section.
