What's happening with IBM Trusteer Rapport?



From 31st January 2019, IBM Trusteer Rapport will no longer serve as an additional layer of security protection on Bankline.

However, Bankline customers will be able to switch to an alternative, award winning solution called Heimdal Thor Foresight Enterprise, to increase protection against cybercrime. In 2018, Heimdal won the Computing Security Award’s “Anti Malware Product of the Year”.


Step 1: Decide if you want to keep Rapport on your computer.

Rapport will continue to complement your anti-virus software and offer protection from certain types of malware.

However, the additional security that Rapport currently provides when you log in to Bankline will no longer be available. For example, the verification checks to confirm that you’re interacting with the bank’s genuine website, as opposed to a fake look-a-like site.

If you want to keep Rapport:

You don’t need to do anything, Rapport will keep working.

Step 2: Install Thor Foresight Enterprise for additional security protection

The bank has a new partnership with Heimdal Thor Foresight Enterprise, which won the Computing Security Award’s “Anti Malware Product of the Year” in 2018.

It will assist in securing your business against malware, ransomware and data breaches.

One licence for up to 10 computers (RRP £96 per annum) is available free of charge for Bankline customers at no additional cost, unless additional licences are needed.
