ORLANDO, Fla. (11/20/08)--ATM manufacturer Diebold has added security and consulting to its outsourcing solution, the company announced Tuesday at a retail banking conference. “In an outsourcing agreement, Diebold’s industry experts work with the financial institution to develop a comprehensive outsourcing solution that includes software, hardware and services,” said Dennis M. Moriarty, Diebold senior vice president, global security. A full-service outsourcing arrangement with Diebold offers a single point-of-contact, helping financial institutions avoid large capital outlays, the company said. It also allows financial institutions to provide advanced security. Outsourcing of security can help lower instances of false alarms through interactive remote monitoring. Adding a digital video recorder and a two-way audio system interconnected to the site alarm panel, along with video monitoring services, can help financial institutions significantly reduce false alarm fees, Diebold said. Diebold is headquartered in North Canton, Ohio.
