IBM Security® Trusteer® Mobile protects native iOS and Android applications through device risk factor analysis, behavior anomaly detection, and persistent mobile device IDs. IBM Security Trusteer Mobile is fully integrated into the Pinpoint cloud risk platform.


IBM Security Trusteer Mobile helps detect device and session risks in real time, helping maintain the integrity of the application in which it has been embedded by using advanced analytics. Trusteer Mobile assesses the device to determine if it has been compromised by malicious actors such as malware, remote access Trojans (RAT) and SMS stealing apps or through jailbreaking and rooting, overlay attacks and more. It uses advanced technologies to continuously process additional cross-channel indicators such as behavioral anomalies, navigation discrepancies and phishing compromise evidence.

Companies often have to make tradeoffs between security and customer experience in today's threat landscape. Digital identity trust technology lets companies measure both risk and trust to keep the customer’s digital journey secure while still offering a better digital experience.

Trusteer Mobile SDK creates a strong device ID that helps differentiate a known device from others. By applying extensive risk protection capabilities, behavioral analytics and contextual vectors, Trusteer Mobile SDK helps determine whether a device has been compromised and verifies that the user is the trusted user.


A new device can usher in threat through poor hygiene or questionable activity. Trusteer Mobile SDK uses a global consortium database and threat intelligence platform with AI and machine learning to help identify bad devices and malicious patterns.

Trusteer Mobile SDK can help identify fraud early during digital account creation or one-time guest engagement from a mobile device. It correlates provided identifiers and context with known fraud and assesses risk by scanning for indicators such as recent mobile carrier changes and suspicious timing.

In general, software as a service (SaaS) solutions offer the ability to deploy quickly and easily. The SaaS deployment also allows Trusteer Mobile SDK to employ agile, ongoing threat protection that uses AI and analytics to identify new threats and patterns.


Trusteer Mobile SDK combines with IBM Security Trusteer Pinpoint Detect to offer multi-factor omnichannel risk assessment by understanding user activity. The solution collects a wide range of attributes and performs multi-layered assessments of network, device, environment and behavioral patterns.


Trusteer Mobile SDK combines with IBM Security Trusteer Pinpoint Assure to help identify fraudsters and establish digital trust with customers by using cloud-based threat intelligence and global visibility during account creation and guest-user transactions.
