The increase in logical attacks on ATMs pose a material risk to enterprises. NCR implements strategies that mitigate against malware, ransomware and unauthorized files. A series of actions are required to align with NCR’s recommended strategy – Defense in Depth.
NCR’s Secure BIOS Management provides the first layer of protection against unauthorized booting and access to the ATM hard disk. This service remotely locks down the Basic Input Output System firmware by applying a password and disabling booting from external devices.
The system also periodically refreshes the BIOS password to ensure that it remains secure. NCRs remote push enables no-touch password implementation and maintenance, saving time and effort. It also saves costs as it does not require manual updates and prevents errors and the sharing of passwords.
