ECS® 4-in-1 is ACG’s most comprehensive skimming solution for ATMs with dip card readers. ATM card
skimming is high-tech bank robbery that accounts for 98% of all ATM card fraud. The U.S. Secret Service
estimates that domestic financial institutions lose $1 billion annually due to skimming attacks. ACG’s
ECS 4-in-1 device is poised to arm community banks against card fraud by offering multi-layered
ECS 4-in-1 is truly a unique anti-skimming solution, as it offers a combination of detection and jamming
protection. It not only safeguards ATM users against skimming attacks through detection technology. It
also provides a shield of skimming protection by creating random, disturbing frequencies that scramble
skimmers (jamming). Therefore, ECS 4-in-1 can detect the physical installation of skimming devices
while simultaneously deactivating them. Additionally, the complete solution includes communication
and data logging functionalities. Therefore, ECS 4-in-1 is a fully integrated solution that provides
financial institutions with four tools to combat skimming: 1) detection; 2) jamming; 3) communication;
and 4) data logger.
The Innovative Solutions Awards champions products and services that aid community banks in the
areas of efficiency and customer service; ECS 4-in-1 is an original hardware solution that does just that.
The product’s detection and jamming functions protect not only banks, but also their customers against
skimming attacks—bolstering branch security and customer confidence. The communication and data
logger functions allow banks to closely monitor and track ATM card activity to quickly identify skimming
devices and protect customers from attacks. Moreover, ECS 4-in-1 will help community banks better
serve customers through:
- Customization: Product parameters are highly customizable according to FI requirements to
minimize false alarms.
- Convenience: On average, it takes less than an hour to install ECS® in the field, and the ATM
does not have to be taken out of service during installation.
- Affordability: ECS 4-in-1 is the most affordable skimming solution on the market that features
both detection and jamming technology.
