Sentient’s EDR Software Solution provides real-time information across all endpoints for maximum security against ATM jackpotting.
March 13, 2018
Accelerite Sentient is a Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) system that can prevent major security threats, like ATM jackpotting, by pulling together real-time information from multiple endpoints and quickly identifying critical vulnerabilities in order to address network issues within minutes. When managing thousands of endpoints across multiple operating systems and devices, it is important to provide end users with a universal platform that displays the same consistent experience regardless of the environment and its ability to become attacked by a security threat.
As companies push the boundaries of device management by extending UEM to include other devices, such as kiosks, vending machines, and ATMs, endpoint protection must be updated with the ability to provide multiple layers of security, such as detection of tampering with the device, detection of removing components from the device, and triggering hard shut-downs on reboot attempts of the device, such as an ATM. Many...
