As ATM attacks increase, Secure Innovation launches new protection product

Published by Richard Yarrick-Holmes on September 12th 2023, 2:02pm

Following a dramatic increase in the number of ATM attacks reported in 2022, Secure Innovation has launched a new solution for ATM cash protection.

The new patented product, ‘a2m passive’ is an affordable and rapidly deployable solution to prevent against ATM explosive attacks. It will complement the company’s existing sophisticated suite of ATM products.

With ATM explosive gas and solid explosive attacks up 16%, and attacks due to ram raids and ATM burglary up 8%, it is no surprise that there is a huge demand for the new product.

‘a2m passive’ is a slimline solution provided with ink or glue that is simply inserted into the lid of any ATM cassette, but it still allows for 100% capacity to remain for banknotes. Any attempt to explode the ATM with gas or solid explosives will immediately deploy the system, covering the banknotes in permanent smart ink stain or glue, rendering the cash valueless. What’s more, ‘Crimetag’ can be added to ‘a2m passive’ to enable the authorities to track, trace and convict criminals.

Simple to install, the product is low-cost and requires no maintenance, instantly providing protection against attacks and deterring criminals. Available for all ATM variants, each having been designed and tested by experts with live explosives in real-life situations.

Tony Westington, Managing Director of Secure Innovation, stated “We understand our customers have different requirements when it comes to protecting their ATM network, and we are keen to offer as much choice as we possibly can.

“Our customers know the threats facing their ATM locations more than we do, and some will choose a passive system because it is cost effective and can be rapidly deployed to stop an overwhelming wave of explosive attacks. Longer-term customers may require integrated end-to-end protection, which is where the intelligent ‘a2m active’ solution comes in. The launch of ‘a2m passive’ however, marks another milestone in our commitment to delivering cutting-edge technology for the protection of people and cash.”

For over 40 years Secure Innovation has researched, designed, and developed innovative solutions with cutting-edge technology to protect people, and safely secure cash and high-value assets.

The announcement follows the recent news regarding the company’s innovative collaboration with the European Space Agency to design and further develop its product ‘Remote Planet’ - an unlimited worldwide tracking solution with the ability to reach areas outside of mobile network coverage, using low orbit satellite technology.
