Dr.Web ATM Shield
Centralized real time protection of embedded systems (ATM, POS networks, multi-kiosks, etc.).
The first virus for ATMs was discovered in Russia in March 2009. It was capable of stealing money from accounts of card bearers and making an ATM give away all the cash to the criminal. This threat was implemented as a Trojan horse that collected information about credit cards and their PIN codes. Compromised ATMs were first found in Moscow and later in St. Petersburg.
In response to the threat Doctor Web created a special anti-virus for centralized real time protection of embedded systems (ATM, POS networks, multi-kiosks, etc.) – Dr.Web ATM Shield. The anti-virus for ATMs is based on Doctor Web’s flagship product Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite and incorporates features, control tools and the architecture of ES. Dr.Web ATM Shield can be easily integrated into an ATM or POS network. It significantly reduces devices' maintenance time and system administrators’ workload.
Centralized anti-virus solution
Dr.Web ATM Shield is client-server software. Clients are installed into embedded systems while the anti-virus server provides centralized administration of clients including their deployment, updating of virus databases and software components, monitoring of the network protection status, receiving notifications on virus incidents, collection of statistics. Server installation and anti-virus network deployment procedures are fairly simple and take little time. The server and clients can connect over TCP/IP (including IPv6 and IPv6), IPX and NetBIOS.
With the hierarchical multi-server Dr.Web ATM Shield protection system, where interconnected servers provide resources for a single anti-virus network and centralized collection of information about the entire network, this product is the best choice for multi-affiliated banks. This highly scalable solution can be deployed in networks of different size and topology ranging from several connected embedded computer systems to complex distributed networks connecting dozens of thousands of hosts. The scalability is achieved by implementation of the grouping mechanism that allows joining several anti-virus servers and a database SQL server into one group with complex interaction structure for group members.
Dr.Web ATM Shield allows an administrator to centrally control all components of the anti-virus network from inside the network or remotely over the Internet, monitor security status of all protected hosts, receive notifications on virus incidents and configure automatic response of the anti-virus to such events. All you need is a TCP/IP connection between the administrator’s computer and the anti-virus server.
Easy deployment and administration, flexible configuration of client installer packages, quick and efficient distribution of virus databases’ updates between clients without additional configuration and update schedules are among numerous advantages of Dr.Web ATM Shield.
