Note Staining Kit (NSK)

New shockwave technology defends against ATM explosive attacks

Gas and solid explosive attacks are spreading globally, resulting in cash losses, collateral damage and most importantly a significant risk to human lives. Stronger safes mean that criminals use more and more explosives and ink-staining solutions that ‘spoil the prize’ are destroyed by the explosion before the ink is activated.

NSK shockwave technology solves these problems because the NSK ink canisters fracture instantly on explosive impact staining 100 per cent of the notes. NSK will be available for all major ATM brands and cassette types.

Deep Insert Skimming: news on attacks & defenses

If you could not join us for the live webinar, replay here

"Deep insert" skimming is a new fraud technique that has been described as the "biggest skimming threat facing the global ATM industry" — and one that the industry is not prepared for. Today's anti-skimming solutions that use jamming or detection give no protection against these new, smart, skimming devices that sit deep inside the ATM or SST card reader, secretly capturing data from thousands of cards.

The number of deep insert skimming incidents is rising fast and attacks are spreading from the U.K. and Europe to North America and Asia Pacific. Join industry experts to discover more about deep insert skimming and the critical importance of active protection:

  • How is deep insert different from other skimming techniques?
  • Why don't jamming and detection anti-skimming solutions offer protection? 
  • What is the best defense for ATMs and SSTs?

Card Protection Plate

The only industry solution to Deep Insert Skimming

Today’s anti-skimming solutions that use jamming technology and detection were not designed to defend against the growing global challenge of deep insert skimmers. Discover more about TMD Security’s Card Protection Plate (CPP), the only proven, patented defence against deep insert skimming. CPP is available for major card reader models used in ATMs and SSTs including NCR SelfServ and Diebold Opteva - DIP and motorised ATMs.

Long Bezel Skimming Devices

New CPK 6001s v2016 for NCR Selfserv ATMs protects against LB skimmers

 ‘Long Bezel’ skimming devices, a totally new type of overlay skimmer with a very long ‘nose’, have been reported on NCR SelfServ ATMs. In anticipation of this new type of skimming attack, TMD Security has already developed a new version of CPK for NCR SelfServ ATMs with motorised card readers. The new solution, CPK 6001s v2016, has a brand new design bezel and patented ‘multi-layer’ security features that not only protect against ‘Long Bezel’ skimmers but also deliver additional defenses against all skimming techniques including second generation stereo skimming and eavesdropping.

Second generation stereo skimming

Proven active protection for NCR SelfServ ATMs

Two stereo skimming attacks on NCR SelfServ ATMs were reported in Ireland in 2015. Testing and analysis of the recovered skimming device showed that the attacks used very sophisticated ‘second generation’ stereo skimming technology that defeats standard jamming solutions. 

TMD Security’s CPK 6001 version 2016 for NCR SelfServ ATMs is proven in independent tests to effectively defend against second generation stereo skimming without the need to take the ATM out of service. This is a huge leap forward in active anti-skimming technology. No other jamming solutions defend against this new threat. TMD has also built defences against second generation stereo skimming into Active DIP Kit (ADK).

Active protection for DIP - an industry first

Orders and installations in US growing fast

ADK is an industry break-through! With ADK the jamming signal is active and constantly protecting the card data – with no need to rely on the detection of a skimming device - and the ATM safely stays in service.  

“Customer orders at both banks and credit unions are coming in fast,” says Tom Moore, Managing Director, TMD North America. “We are in the process of installing ADK on ATMs across seven states across the US - including the east and west coast.”
