Javelin's Awards

Javelin awards

Recognize Excellence in the Marketplace! 

In creating our award programs — our idea was simple:

In the course of our ongoing market research, we find certain firms that rise to the top — recognizing these firms for their exceptional quality of product or client experience, ability to meet customer demand, or overall excellence.  Javelin has the following Award Programs:



Javelin Mobile Banking Leader and Vendor award


Javelin’s annual Mobile Banking Leader award analyzes the mobile banking offerings of the top U.S. retail financial institutions by gross annual deposit size. Critical areas explored were: functionality, accessibility, app ratings, and alerts. 


Javelin’s Mobile Banking Vendor awards provide a highly detailed, competitive analysis and ranking of 11 leading mobile banking providers. The study evaluates vendors’ solutions — standard and customized — in four main categories: security, platform, features, and emerging capabilities. The results of this study can be used as a strategic guideline for financial institutions developing their mobile strategy or selecting a vendor, or for vendors to provide evidence to build a mobile banking justification for customers.



Javelin Online Banking Leader award


The Javelin Online Banking Leaders are those financial institutions that have distinguished themselves from the pack by providing an outstanding online banking experience. The award benchmarks the 30 largest retail financial institutions on more than 200 features in three categories: Financial Management, Money Movement, and Customer-First Banking.



Javelin Consumer Identity Safety Leader award


Javelin’s Consumer Identity Safety Leader evaluates two categories of financial institutions to mitigate identity fraud for their customers.  The consumer-facing security features of each institution is cored according to Javelin’s Protection, Detection, and Resolution® Model. The criteria and scoring system are updated to reflect top industry standards and emerging fraud trends. The Credit Card Issuers and Financial Institution Leaders are published in alternating years. 


  • Top 20 Credit Card Issuers award provides insight into how the credit card industry's customer-facing security measures are affecting recent fraud trends and how issuers can improve their security infrastructure.
  • The Top 50 financial institutions by deposit size and assesses the performance of individual FIs on their consumer‐facing security features. 



Javelin Identity Protection Leader award


Javelin has evaluated the identity protection services industry annually to analyze vendor performance, consumers’ and resellers’ needs, and the best strategies for bringing the two together. This $3.2 billion market is changing significantly: The pace of consolidation is slowing, an increase in data breaches is leading to more fraud, and consumers are oversharing their personal information in social media. The Javelin Identity Protection Leader award highlights vendors that can deliver optimal solutions to meet current fraudster strategies.
