IBM Security Trusteer Pinpoint Detect enables the collection of intelligence from digital endpoints—that is, the organization’s mobile app, mobile browser or desktop browsers—and combines the information with IBM worldwide intelligence sources and complementary third-party intelligence sources.

Pinpoint Detect works transparently, without the need for downloading executable files or plugins to the user's computer. For web applications, Pinpoint uses code embedded into the web page. For mobile applications, the organization’s app uses the IBM Security Trusteer Mobile SDK.
