IBM patents fraudster detection technology for websites, mobile apps

Antone Gonsalves | May 28, 2014
IBM has invented a technique for identifying fraudsters who have stolen credentials.

While there's no timetable for bringing the invention to market, Walker believes it would be a good fit for IBM's Trusteer Pinpoint, which watches for traffic anomalies that would indicate malware on devices connecting to a corporate network.

"We're actively talking to the Trusteer people," O'Connell said.

Security is an area IBM has said it will target as part of its strategy for reversing a string of quarterly revenue declines, due in part to slowing hardware sales. Other growth areas on IBM's radar include cloud services and big data analytics.
