WN and Cisco to provide banks with integrated security solutions for ATM networks
Wincor Nixdorf and Cisco to provide banks with integrated security solutions for ATM networks worldwide
Wincor Nixdorf and Cisco have signed a memorandum of understanding on the joint development of an integrated security solution portfolio for self-service networks. The solutions are intended to help banks protect themselves against growing numbers of attacks on their networks.
The solution(s) will be developed based on Cisco Security Agent technology and the ProTect/Enterprise Security Suite from Wincor Nixdorf, combining the powerful strengths and benefits of both. Banks today are prey to growing numbers of unpredictable, unknown attacks on their networks which now make up the majority of network attacks. Virus scanners and firewalls only protect against known network attacks and are unable to help in this instance. The new solution(s) from Wincor Nixdorf and Cisco make it possible to pre-empt attacks in good time before they are actually carried out.
"With the Cisco Security Agent, you don't have to experience the effects of an attack before you can stop it," Michael Ganser, Vice President and Managing Director of Cisco Systems Germany.” This is the best example of a new breed of computer security products that take network defense beyond the realm of the current generation of anti-virus protection."
“The synergy behind this potential partnership could change the way retail banks handle security issues not only today but for years to come” Reinhard Rabenstein, Senior Vice President and Chief Technical Officer of Wincor Nixdorf.
Cisco Systems, Inc. is the worldwide leader in Network Security. Today, networks are an essential part of business, education, government and home communications, and Cisco Internet Protocol-based networking solutions are the foundation of these networks.
