Stay a step ahead of the crime – With ASDIS protect your automated teller machines optimally against manipulations

ASDIS fraud fighting solutions secure your ATMs optimally

 

Berlin, 10th June, 2014.

Manipulations of automated teller machines are commonplace nowadays and are more and more professionally performed. Attaching additional keyboards or card slots are just two of the many strategies of manipulation, which come to be costly both to the ATM-owners and the customers.  ASDIS gives you a comprehensive protection of your ATMs.

Fraud fighting solutions are a staple part of ASDIS products. They are used for detection and analysis of unusual ATM events. Among the recognizable events are for example unauthorized opening of the housing, the withdrawal of a card, messages of anti-skimming devices, or the display of a payment dysfunction.

Although not every conspicuous incident is of criminal nature, ASDIS evaluates all occurrences  automated and intelligent. Both the recognition of already known and previously unknown manipulations are for ASDIS not a problem. Latter are detected by means of a heuristic diagnose.

Crucial for the successful defense of fraud is the immediate trigger of actions after the detection of a manipulation. Fraud fighting functions initiate a shutdown of the automated teller machine or turn it offline. In addition, relevant  reports  are provided at a central location and e-mails or text messages are sent. Thereby, the ATM operator is informed about a manipulation immediately.

The products of ASDIS can be easily integrated into your existing system. Thus, the continued safe operation of your ATMs is guaranteed. With ASDIS you are protected excellently against manipulations and more than that you can prevent proactively the loss of image and capital.

Handle the ATM-Migration on Windows 7 with ASDIS – fast, secure, automated and transparent

ASDIS supports  you in the current biggest challenge in the sector of automated teller machines: The migration from Windows XP to Windows 7

 

Berlin, 29th April, 2014.

Although support for Windows XP is set to 8th of April 2014, a large number of ATMs is still running on the operating system from 2001. The migration to Windows 7 brings many challenges and problems with it. Often the necessary transparency and the right product is missing to cope with the challenge. ASDIS offers the ideal solution for fast and easy migration of your ATMs.

 

Further operation of Windows XP is possible for the moment, however, associated with a number of cost-intensive and organisationally complex steps. As a result, the competitiveness is reduced and safety is no longer guaranteed.

 

ASDIS recommends an immediate, cost-effective and rapid migration to Windows 7. The number of the required ressources (staff, hardware etc.) should be kept as low as possible and the availability of the ATMs during the migration process as high as possible. With ASDIS you get the necessary software as well as a clear defined and comprehensible process. From the analysis of the compatibility of the devices to the final put into operation, ASDIS performs all steps independently. The automation of isolated processes not only ensures a fast but also a safe flow of migration. In just eight steps, your ATMs are fully migrated and ready for future.
