SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland & PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TMD Security, the global leader in anti-skimming for ATMs and SSTs, announced today the release of its new anti-skimming solution for NCR SelfServ ATMs. TMD Security’s Card Protection Kit (CPK) 6001s version 2016 defends against ‘Long Bezel’ (LB) skimming devices, a new skimming technique targeted at NCR SelfServ ATMs with motorised card readers.
As part of ongoing risk analysis, TMD Security R&D predicted the threat of Long Bezel skimming on NCR SelfServ ATMs and developed CPK 6001s v2016 with patented security features that defend against LB skimmers. This new anti-skimming solution for NCR SelfServ ATMs also actively protects against other skimming techniques including second generation stereo skimming.
‘There has been a growing number of Long Bezel skimming devices reported on NCR SelfServ ATMs in Europe,’ says Anthony Schaap, Director, TMD Security. ‘These new LB skimmers have an overlay bezel with a very long ‘nose’ and standard anti-skimming solutions cannot protect the card data on the magnetic stripe from being copied. Also, because the inside of the LB skimming bezel is large and hollow, it is more difficult to detect. Organised crime works at a global level and spreads fast so we believe all NCR SelfServ ATMs should be protected from this new skimming technique. We are releasing our new anti-skimming solution, CPK 6001s v2016, as standard for all CPK orders for SelfServ ATMs as of 1 July 2016 and an upgrade kit for users of CPK 6001 on NCR SelfServ ATMs.’
‘TMD Security strongly recommends that all NCR SelfServ ATMs with motorised card readers be secured with CPK 6001s v2016,’ adds Anthony Schaap. ‘We believe in a complementary, multi-layered security strategy so we also advise all deployers to consider the active protection that TMD Security’s patented Card Protection Plate (CPP) provides against the rapidly growing problem of ATM deep insert skimmers and shimmers.’
