Comprehensive coverage across digital channels

Adapting to new threats
Policy engine delivers visibility, control and flexibility

IBM Trusteer Pinpoint Detect helps protect digital channels against account takeover, fraudulent transactions, and can detect end user devices infected with high risk malware. Trusteer Pinpoint Detect is a cloud-based solution that can transparently build user profiles and continuously authenticate online identities to more efficiently differentiate between a true user and fraudsters.

Trusteer Pinpoint Detect incorporates behavioral biometrics capabilities, using patented analytics and machine learning for real-time cognitive fraud detection. The behavioral biometric capabilities use machine learning to help understand how users interact with banking websites, creating models based on patterns of mouse movements that become increasingly more accurate over time.

To gain visibility and control, Pinpoint Detect delivers the cloud-based capability to manage and create custom policies to help you rapidly build and deploy countermeasures. With advanced analytics and machine learning, the policy engine can help predict or devise new rules and suggest changes to existing rules to help minimize false positives.

When users access their online banking site, IBM Trusteer Pinpoint Detect is designed to:

  • Enable a real-time risk assessment with an actionable recommendations
  • Employ behavioral biometrics capabilities to seamlessly build models based on patterns of mouse movements in real-time and analyze patterns against learned user behavior and known fraud patterns
  • Identify access using compromised credentials and provide actionable recommendations to help detect and mitigate fraudulent activities
  • Control and create custom policies to help you rapidly build and deploy countermeasures leveraging machine learning and advanced analytics

To provide an additional protection layer, IBM Trusteer mobile solutions can integrate with Pinpoint Detect using an embedded software development kit. This component assesses risk information from the mobile device – such as malware infections, root and jailbroken information, accurate geolocation and Wi-Fi security status.

IBM Trusteer Pinpoint Detect is the foundation of the IBM Trusteer Fraud Protection Suite and represents a new approach to fraud protection, based on three key features.


IBM Trusteer Pinpoint Detect’s engine can correlate a wide range of critical fraud indicators – including phishing attacks, malware infections, compromised credentials and advanced evasion methods. It does this using enhanced device, geolocation and transactional modeling to help more accurately detect fraudulent activities.

Global threat intelligence network

In fighting fraud, the breadth, depth and speed of intelligence gathering are critical. The IBM global threat intelligence network analyzes threat intelligence from 270 million end user endpoints and behavioral profiles – which are then used to create dynamic digital models. The network is continuously processing security intelligence.

Armed with this intelligence, IBM Trusteer Pinpoint Detect adapts defenses with automatic updates – without additional effort of the financial organization. It takes advantage of a multitude of session attributes data and fraud indicators to help more accurately identify fraud in immense data sets.

Agility by design

Time is a crucial element in cybersecurity prevention, and Trusteer Pinpoint Detect has an agile architecture that enables a highly flexible and fast response process. Using cloud-based technologies, IBM can help rapidly detect, analyze, build and deploy countermeasures for new and emerging threats. Financial institutions can also receive application-aware defenses specifically tailored to their needs and the threats they face. This capability can help further increase detection accuracy, and is designed to help reduce operational costs.
