Nowadays, more and more people rely on the Web for many day-to-day transactions that once required their physical presence. These include e-government, e-banking and online shopping. However, as technology becomes more sophisticated, fraud also becomes more prevalent. These occurrences generate financial losses to organizations and bring distress to cardholders.

The APG8201-B2 is a smart card reader with a keypad and an LCD screen which has Secure PIN Entry (SPE) feature to protect every PIN code from attacks, such as viruses or USB sniffers. It can perform secure cardholder verification/authentication in order to allow them to perform online log-in and other online transactions. A cost-efficient response to man-in-the-middle attacks, the APG8201-B2 help end-users and organizations protect their sensitive data from these attacks.
