ACG Delivers Triple DES Compliant ATMs

Tuesday 11 November 2003 11:15 CET | News

ACG ATM-Remarketers now offers construction and delivery of refurbished-to-order ATM units that feature the latest Triple DES upgrades.

Triple DES encryption, a higher standard of data encryption, is the newest communications security upgrade for ATMs required by VISA and MasterCard and is designed to better protect electronically transmitted data. The essential upgrades are a new encryption PIN pad (EPP) and updated software. To be compliant with VISA and MasterCard, ATMs tied to their networks must have the EPP and software installed and running before April 1, 2005. Working through the ATM manufacturers channels and solutions, ACG installs Triple DES compliant hardware and software as the ATM is being rebuilt. Because ACG upgrades its machines while they are refurbished, financial institutions can purchase ATMs that are completely compliant at a reasonable price. After ACG obtains used ATMs from banks and credit unions, the machines are completely disassembled and each part is analyzed separately. The parts are extensively tested individually and repaired where needed. Non-repairable parts are replaced. Screen burned CRTs are replaced with new ones. Belts, rollers, vacuum tubes and other wear items are replaced. The EPP is installed, upgraded licensed software is loaded, and the entire ATM is tested thoroughly. After passing all quality control tests, the ATM is shipped to its final destination where it is connected to the corresponding network.
