Staying One Step Ahead of Hackers: ATMs

ATM cyberattacks

Automated teller machines (ATMs) are a prime target for hackers. Why? The amount of money inside of them and the easy access to obtaining it. Some ATMs are filled with over $2,000 a day. That’s $14,000 a week. And $56,000 a month. Give or take the money going out from transactions, that is still a hefty sum of money. Eleven years ago, in 2008, the estimated sum of money lost to ATM attacks was over $1 billion. That sum is likely to have increased as hackers’ skills improve and the ways in which they go undetected are becoming more sophisticated. Financial losses are not the only cost. A loss of reputation and customer loyalty comes with ATM fraud. ATM related fraud increased by 26% from 2015 to 2016, with 23,588 attacks in the latter year.

Hardware Assets Control solution for ATM cyberattacks

Sepio Systems Hardware Access Control HAC-1, provides 100% hardware device visibility.

Further, HAC-1 enables Hardware Access Control by setting rules based on the devices characteristics.

Additionally, HAC-1 instantly detects any devices which breach the set rules and automatically block them to prevent malicious attacks.

The idea is to Verify and then Trust that those assets are what they say they are.

Sepio Systems HAC-1 brings the ultimate solution to zero trust adoption by providing 100% hardware device visibility for ATM cyberattacks

With greater visibility, the zero-trust architecture can grant access decisions with complete information.

Thus, enhancing the enterprise’s protection within, and outside of, its traditional perimeters.

Additionally, the Hardware Access Control capabilities of HAC-1, block Rogue Devices as soon as they are detected

Lastly, HAC-1 stop an attack at the first instance, not even allowing such devices to make network access requests.

HAC-1 is here to protect Government Agencies and the nation’s critical infrastructure

Embracing Zero Trust Hardware Access in critical infrastructure is key.
