Banco de Chile has ordered 500 automated teller machines (ATMs) from Wincor Nixdorf to replace its current ATMs with secure systems.
The bank will install 500 CINEO ATMs to comply with a government decree, issued in 2013, that gave ATM operators five years to replace their machines, which were popular targets for criminal attacks, with secure systems.
Wincor Nixdorf’s CINEO ATMs will provide HD video surveillance of the surroundings, with more cameras in the ATMs to monitor the customer panel and safes that are particularly resistant to gas explosions and other physical attacks.
Banco de Chile director security and risk prevention Osvaldo René González García said: "It’s not primarily about protecting the cash in the systems, but preventing potential collateral damage from explosions. The security of our customers and staff has top priority for us."
