Wincor Nixdorf Inc., the premier global provider of intelligent transaction and payment solutions for the banking and retail markets, today announced the launch of an enhanced PC/E Terminal Security multi-vendor ATM security software suite. The enhanced suite, comprised of its PC/E Terminal Security Intrusion Protection and PC/E Terminal Security Access Protection solutions, offers the highest level of security available for the ATM environment, can be deployed on any type of ATM in a multi-vendor environment, and supports financial institutions in achieving compliancy with international security standards and regulations, including PCI standards and state data protection laws as currently in force in 46 states in the U.S.

"Wincor Nixdorf has a long history of global leadership in ATM security, and we continue to bring new, innovative solutions to our clients,” said Patrick Wright, President and CEO of U.S. Operations, Wincor Nixdorf. “Our enhanced PC/E Terminal Security suite proactively protects against intrusions before they even happen, ensuring that banks can protect their brand and protect their customers’ data with complete peace of mind. No other company has Wincor Nixdorf’s expansive knowledge of ATMs, which is critical to deliver this level of protection.”

Financial institutions are facing increasingly higher costs caused by loss of productivity due to security-related attacks on ATMs. This, coupled with the recent mandate to be compliant with PCI standards, translates into increased pressure on financial institutions to improve the security of their ATM networks.

Wincor Nixdorf’s PC/E Terminal Security suite is designed to protect against known and unknown threats delivering so-called Day-Zero protection, preventing attacks originating locally from over the network or from a recoverable medium (such as a USB-based device). With a predefined security policy, the solution forbids all unauthorized actions and access, and thus prevents any unauthorized introduction, alterations or execution of software components at ATMs.

Additional benefits include:
  • Streamlined security administration
  • Predefined security policies for a multi-vendor environment
  • Real-time monitoring and logging of attacks
  • Protection against known and unknown attacks
  • Customization of individual security policy parameters
  • Optional adaptation to existing administration system
  • No adverse effect on serviceability
  • Support in achieving PCI – DSS and ISO compliancy
