Is SEP all these ATM machines will have in terms of protection?? Not CSP?  IMO SEP is not the right choice of protection for machines that dont have a network connection, SEP requires signatures to be fully protected, CSP does not require signatures and would be far more robust.

If theyre not connected via a network there's only 1 other way and itll take a long time depending on how many there are.

thumbs up to above suggestion.

you should be looking for critical system protection. However there is way to update the client using internal Liveupdate server .
