Sargent and Greenleaf (S&G), a manufacturer of high-quality mechanical and electronic locks, announced its Digital Hood Defense for ATM security. Compatible with S&G’s Digital Platform products, this innovative device increases the overall security of ATM units by protecting the hood from jackpotting attacks — whereby malware has been attached to an ATM to rapidly access money—- without compromising convenience for operators. The Digital Hood Defense wires through the same keypad as the vault lock, allowing the user to easily control access to their hood, vault or both depending on the paired vault lock. After installing the latest update, Digital Hood Defense works directly through existing lock software. When paired with the Digital Platform keypad, this lock records both hood and vault access — up to 1,000 time- and date-stamped events — enhancing ATM security, management and oversight while making the unit impervious to hood tampering. Digital Hood Defense can be retrofitted with any new Digital Platform ATM lock or bundle the accessory with your next lock purchase and installation.
