LONG BEACH, Miss. -- Triton has taken another step in preventing ATM fraud, as the Encrypting PIN Pads (EPP) on the Triton RL5000 and FT5000 ATM have been certified as being compliant with new Visa security requirements. Visa mandates that all ATM EPPs be Visa tested and certified by July 1, 2004. Triton's new EPP is the latest in a series of enhanced ATM security features, which include Triple DES encryption capabilities, now standard on all Triton ATMs.
"Triton actively supports any available security measures that will help prevent card fraud and ATM theft," said Brian Kett, president of Triton. "Our compliance with these measures also supports our partners in maintaining consumer confidence by preventing fraudulent ATM transactions. At Triton, we are continuously improving our products to provide our customers with the most secure ATMs in the market."
An EPP improves security by encrypting the PIN before it is transmitted from the terminal pad. The device prevents the unencrypted PIN from being intercepted while in transit from the terminal pad.
All makes and models of Triton ATMs will be compliant by Visa's July 1 deadline, requiring all newly deployed ATM and cash-dispensing PIN-acceptance devices to pass laboratory testing by a Visa-recognized laboratory.
