NuSource Financial to Partner with Blue Ridge Networks to Incorporate AppGuard Software Solution for ATM Security
Dec 16 14
Blue Ridge Networks announced a partnership with NuSource Financial to incorporate AppGuard security on Automated Teller Machines (ATMs). Current ATM software typically relies on maintenance personnel running batch files from USB memory sticks for patch upgrades, often delaying updates to address identified vulnerabilities. Further, ATMs have the same risks as any other computer for exploits of undiscovered vulnerabilities. Attacks on ATMs are on the rise worldwide, costing banks, governments and consumers billions of dollars per year. These attacks can seriously damage a financial institution's reputation, lower customer confidence, and shorten the lifespan of ATMs. NuSource Financial understood their banking customers' concerns about ATM malware threats such as the recent Tyupkin malware attack, which utilizes scripts on a USB for infecting the ATM. Working with Blue Ridge, NuSource confirmed that AppGuard provides unique, next generation protection against the rash of new viruses, zero-day malware, ransomware, targeted attacks, and many other forms of advanced threats currently plaguing the marketplace. It prevents exploits from known and unknown threats using patented isolation and containment technologies. AppGuard provides this protection without requiring burdensome scanning or frequent updates. NuSource values AppGuard's robust defenses that disrupt malware attacks and deliver unmatched exploit prevention for ATMs. AppGuard prevents unauthorized scripts or malware from executing a first-stage attack on the ATM or running malware from a USB stick or CD-ROM used for maintenance. AppGuard does not rely on scanning, detection, or signature identification to provide protection, thus reducing system overhead. AppGuard is always protecting and does not require updates or patches, mitigating risks and concern from ATM system maintenance delays. When ATM maintenance is implemented, AppGuard enforces an orderly process with a security audit to maintain system integrity. AppGuard works on systems that are not being patched or updated on a regular basis, ensuring optimized security for ATMs with vulnerable software.
