Hirsch Teams with CoreStreet for Identity Solutions   ADT Offers New ATM Security Technology to Combat 'Skimming'
Hirsch Electronics, a leading supplier of access control and security management solutions, announces its Professional Services Group has developed a solution for verifying digital identity certificates by integrating both their Velocity Security Management System and RUU Verification Station with Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201-enabling technology from CoreStreet, a leading provider of credential validation solutions. The integration allows smart card-based identity credentials -- such as the U.S. government's Personal Identity Verification (PIV) card -- to be verified not only during a spot check at a verification station, but also in an ongoing, near real-time implementation of an access control system using registered credentials.   BOCA RATON, Fla. - Skimming, "a way criminals use high-tech electronic tools to capture personal financial information and steal money from automated teller machine (ATM) customers" is one of the financial industry's fastest-growing crimes, according to the U.S. Secret Service. Also, the worldwide ATM Industry Association (ATMIA) reports over $1 billion in annual global losses from credit card fraud and electronic crime associated with ATMs. "But perhaps the most significant skimming cost to financial institutions is the damage to their reputation and the loss of customer confidence that accompanies the theft of personal financial information," said Hank Monaco, vice president for ADT Security Services. ADT is introducing to North American financial institutions its Anti-Skim ATM Security Solution that helps prevent skimming attempts and detects skimming devices on all major ATM makes and models.
