Diebolds new technology fights skimming

 Permanent link
NORTH CANTON, Ohio (11/4/11)--Diebold is introducing a re-engineered ATM bezel and the Opteva BezelSentry Service to detect and prevent skimming activity at ATMs.

Diebold is CUNA Strategic Services provider.

The company has re-engineered its Opteva ATM hardware to support anti-skimming with a new design for the bezel--the portion of the ATM containing the card slot and the surrounding area.

The re-engineered bezel incorporates geometric fascia alterations, making it more difficult for perpetrators to attach a skimmer to its surface and is designed to eliminate the market inventory of card skimmers. The re-engineered bezel helps protect its integrity during removal attacks and features a removal switch that will send an alarm notifying the financial institution of any attempt to remove the bezel.

Diebold is also offering an interchangeable bezel service.

All shipped Diebold Opteva ATMs will be equipped with the new interchangeable bezel design. Diebold has been shipping terminals equipped with the new design since December 2010. Previously shipped Opteva terminals can be retrofitted with the re-engineered bezel. Future bezel replacements will be available with minimal impact on ATM uptime, said Diebold.
