Card Skimming Protection
A skimming device placed on an ATM is an unauthorized device equipped with at least one magnetic stripe read head and a data storage facility to collect customer card data. When a customer inserts a bank or credit card into the card reader, the skimming device reads the magnetic stripe, records and stores customer data. A camera or PIN pad overlay is used to collect PIN data, and criminals can clone the ATM card and steal a customer’s money.
Skimming remains one of the most popular and well-known ATM frauds. Today, attackers are more sophisticated and are relentless in their efforts to outsmart the ATM security industry.
Patented quasi-harmonic signal
The patented signal is proven to have no effect on the normal operation of the ATM
Works with DIP and motorized card readers
Works with all popular ATM and SST models
Dual antenna provides optimal protection against skimming
Faceplate design is complex and cannot be replicated by 3D printers
Faceplate has a narrow card insert slot for protection against deep insert skimmers
If area sensors detect cutting, dismantling of anti-skimmer or panel removal, the card reader is powered down
Remotely configurable via web administration panel
The SPL StopSkimmer solution is not card reader specific and works with all popular ATMs and SSTs.
Stereo Skimming uses two read heads working in tandem to steal card data. One read head records the jammer’s noise and the other read head records the card data with the jamming noise. Through a process of elimination, if the attacker has both pieces of information, they can isolate the card data. They isolate the signal from the jamming noise by looking for patterns in the signal. The attacker seeks a pattern that can be extracted. Extraction is easier with any signal that repeats when being read.
SPL StopSkimmer prevents the fraudulent card reader from reading information through its patented quasi-harmonic signal, modulated by a noise signal. The SPL StopSkimmer is equipped with two antennas. Together the signal and the antennas work in tandem to create an electromagnetic field that changes the noise. The noise (wave frequency) is unique and both changes and prevents the fraudulent card reader from extracting card data.
While EMV chip cards cannot be cloned, as long as they contain the magnetic stripe, the customer data can be compromised.
