ATEK Products Announces New Larco USB Kiosk Mat
Innovative Mat Design from Larco Enhances Kiosk Security
New USB Kiosk Mat helps prevent unauthorized access to personal information
Brainerd, Minn. – March 20, 2008 – Recognizing the growing need for increased protection against identity and information theft, Larco Manufacturing, a leading supplier of automatic door mats, handicap wall switches and industrial safety mats, has introduced the USB Security Kiosk floor mat. When users step away from the terminal, the floor mat realizes the change in pressure and works in conjunction with the kiosk’s operator interface to block unauthorized access to automatic teller machines (ATMs) and information kiosks.
Ideally suited for banks, hospitals, hotels, human resource stations, or any location where personal and financial information are accessible through an operator interface, the USB Security Kiosk Mat recognizes changes in mat pressure and engages or discontinues the transaction as appropriate. Sensitive information is removed from the screen as soon as the user has moved off the mat, adding another layer of security.
“With increased access to personal information comes an increased risk of theft,” said Varuni Novick, president of Larco Manufacturing. “At Larco, we recognize the concerns of consumers and businesses alike and are continually working to develop technologies that work to protect, but don’t impede, user access to information. Through new technologies such as the USB Kiosk Mat, we’re providing our customers with peace-of-mind that their customers’ information is secure.”
Placed in front of the kiosk, pressure must be applied to the mat before system log-on is possible. When pressure is removed, the USB Kiosk Mat automatically logs the user off of the system and requires proper credentials before the user can gain access to the system again. Utilizing a common plug and play connection with a standard USB cable, the mat can be quickly linked to the kiosk computer system and works seamlessly with existing security features.
The waterproof mat is offered in four standard sizes and three finishes (black, brown and gray), and can be customized to meet specific customer color and size requests for an additional charge.
