Diebold believes a multi-layered approach that includes hardware, software and services is the most effective way to secure the ATM. Utilizing a multi-layered approach, Diebold provides protection for the ways ATMs can be compromised, including:
Logical Security: Logical ATM security measures protect critical data and applications throughout an ATM network from insiders, hackers, viruses, worms and other malicious threats. Logical security solutions include innovations such as USB blocking, encrypted communications, advanced software protections and more.
ATM Fraud Protection: Anti-fraud measures include a network of defenses to guard against even the most sophisticated fraud attempts, such as card skimming, PIN interception and dispenser trapping. Fraud mitigation solutions include technologies such as skimming detection, electromagnetic field protection, fraud monitoring and more.
Physical Security: The physical security of an ATM must begin with the ATM itself, but also include complete premise security to enhance the hardening of the ATM environment. Effective physical security measures protect terminals against physical threats that are intended to penetrate the hardware, such as burglary, brute-force attacks and even terminal removal.
