ATM Security Threats

ATM Attack

Automated teller machines (ATMs) are a prime target for hackers due to 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….

The worldwide presence of ATMs means jackpotting attacks are a global threat. ATM Jackpotting is a type of logical attack that instructs the machine to dispense cash at a rapid pace.

Sepio protects your hardware devices through layer 1 visibility

Heavy spending on cybersecurity should bring a high return on investment, yet gaps in visibility limit this. Sepio’s Hardware Access Control (HAC-1) solution provides a panacea to gaps in device visibility to ensure you are getting the most out of your cybersecurity investments. HAC-1 integrates with existing solutions, such as NAC, EPS, SIEM and SOAR, to enhance cyber security for financial institutions. HAC-1’s deep visibility capabilities mean no device goes unmanaged; the solution identifies, detects, and handles all IT/OT/IoT devices. Moreover, HAC-1’s policy enforcement mechanism and Rogue Device Mitigation capabilities instantly block any unapproved or rogue hardware. In doing so, ultimately, HAC-1 enables a Zero Trust Hardware Access approach which stops attackers at the first line of defense.

HAC-1 has successfully detected and blocked rogue devices at top tier banks’ ATMs. Give us just 24 hours to show you how we can protect your ATMs and stop you from becoming an attacker’s next slot machine.
