WHY checker? Checker ATM Security is the first ever security product custom designed for financial self-service platforms. checker enables centralized administration and monitoring of ATM’s security, including control of running applications, local and remote resources access (such as files, USB sticks or cash dispenser) and filters inbound and outbound communications. By means of this cast-iron control checker assures a high-security ATM environment, cuts off at source any infections caused by malware (virus, Trojans,…), restricts access to sensitive information and prevents any malicious software from being entered or run on any sensitive resources of the ATM.
The introduction of Microsoft Windows operating systems in ATMs and the use of IP networks as communication mechanisms have resulted in higher security risks due to the vulnerabilities common to open systems. Current threats range from access to stored sensitive transaction data to software manipulation, resulting in fraud and ATM unavailability. checker mitigates these risks in a simple and effective way, creating a secure communication and execution environment, managed and monitored from a central location with negligible impact in operations.
HOW DOES IT WORK? Each ATM fits a checker client and an Access Control List (ACL) that contains an exhaustive definition of authorized processes, system resources (files and libraries) and permitted communications. All other elements not appearing on this list are automatically blocked. This ACL provides a detailed definition of what the ATM can and cannot do.
checker includes a central server for ATM security monitoring and administration. Communication between the ATMs and server is encrypted end-to-end, enabling the ATM's security to be remotely managed and ensuring secure, real time notification of security events detected in the ATM.
