Sargent and Greenleaf launches Digital Hood Defence
Secures ATM units from malware and jackpotting attacks. Compatible with S&G's Digital Platform products, this innovative device increases the overall security of ATM units by protecting the hood from jackpotting attacks - whereby malware has been attached to an ATM to rapidly access money - without compromising convenience for operators.
The Digital Hood Defence wires through the same keypad as the vault lock, allowing the user to easily control access to their hood, vault or both depending on the paired vault lock.
After installing the latest update, Digital Hood Defence works directly through existing lock software. When paired with the Digital Platform keypad, this lock records both hood and vault access -- up to 1,000 time- and date-stamped events -- enhancing ATM security, management and oversight while making the unit impervious to hood tampering.
"Jackpotting has been on the rise worldwide in recent years and ATM vaults are not the only layer that needs protection," said Keith Deaton, COO of Sargent and Greenleaf. "Increasing physical security for existing ATM unit can help mitigate attacks, and, as the name suggests, Digital Hood Defence adds additional security for the entire unit, making it a complete locking solution against attacks," said Deaton.
S&G Digital Hood Defence main features include:
- Secures ATM hood with S&G's Model 1004 lock body
- Digital Hood Defense is managed through the existing vault lock keypad
- Keypad eliminates the need for standard cylinder keys
- Pair with A-Series with Display (ASWD), Audit 2.0 or Digital Time Lock
Digital Hood Defense can be retrofitted with any new Digital Platform ATM lock or bundle the accessory with your next lock purchase and installation. For more information, visit www.sargentandgreenleaf.com
