by | Oct 3, 2014 | Other News

RISCO Group, an Israel based provider of integrated security solutions, has signed a deal with several Chinese banks to provide security protection for tens of thousands of their cash machines (ATMs) across the country.

China recently became the world’s largest ATM market, surpassing the U.S. with an estimated 520,000 machines, according to RBR, a UK-based analysts firm. This growth accelerated in 2013 with the installation of 100,000 machines in that year alone.

RISCO Group is providing China with two of their specialized detectors to protect the ATMs from intrusion: The ShockTec™ digital shock detector which detects attempts to shake the machine to dispense more cash, and their very powerful seismic detector which monitors the vibration and temperature of the protected surface and can detect all known types of intruder attacks, including sledge hammers, diamond head drills, explosives, hydraulic pressure tools and thermal tools.

RISCO Group has operated in China for many years through its office in Shanghai. Activity in the Chinese market has traditionally focused on projects for banks and retail chains using access control and Command & Control solutions. RISCO Group’s products are widely in demand due to their high quality and technological innovation and the company is ranked among the five global leading providers in its field.

This project joins many recent largescale RISCO Group projects for a diverse group of clients, including providing a comprehensive security solution for the newly constructed 44,000 seat Arena Pantanal; one of 12 stadiums that were used for the 2014 World Cup games in Brazil and integrating a complete security management solution for the University of Cyprus.

RISCO Group creates integrated security solutions for global security markets. From software solutions to high-performance wired and wireless integrated systems, the company develops products matching customers’ requirements and industry standards. The company has more than 700 employees worldwide, most in Israel at the global headquarters and the development center in Rishon LeZion, as well as the production center in Kiriat Gat.
