U.S. Bank Deploys Industry's First ATMs Operating On Windows® 7 And Running Agilis® Software

NORTH CANTON, Ohio and MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Bank, lead bank of U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB), is enhancing its automated teller machine (ATM) fleet by upgrading it to the Windows 7 operating system. Diebold, Incorporated (NYSE:DBD) is performing the upgrade – initiating the industry's first ATM conversions to Windows 7 and placing the fifth-largest commercial bank in the United States at the forefront of meeting new Payment Card Industry (PCI) security requirements. The U.S. Bank upgrade will be complete in early 2014.

Microsoft will stop supporting Windows XP in April 2014, making the software noncompliant with PCI guidelines and requiring ATMs to have the latest security patches. U.S. Bank's conversion to Windows 7 supports compliance, improves security and enriches the performance, reliability and compatibility of its ATMs.

"U.S. Bank is committed to delivering the highest level of functionality and protection for consumers at the ATM," said Jeannie Fichtel, executive vice president and head of 24 Hour and ATM Banking at U.S. Bank. "By proactively implementing security upgrades such as Windows 7, we are offering our customers enhanced service that may be invisible to them, but which is particularly important to preserving the integrity of our network."

Beyond operating system updates, the companies are proactively addressing additional PCI compliance and EMV (Europay, MasterCard and Visa) card requirements. Diebold will install advanced Encrypting PIN Pads (EPPs) on U.S. Bank's terminals to enhance consumer protection and comply with PCI mandates. Preparing U.S. Bank for the growth of secure EMV chip card-based technology, Diebold will install EMV card readers on the ATMs.

"U.S. Bank was one of the first banks to comply with ADA regulations so it's no surprise that they are the first to initiate Windows 7 conversions," said Mychal D. Kempt, vice president of North America operations, Diebold. "One of our most progressive customers, the bank was the first to use our latest Agilis software, deploying a customized solution that enables efficiencies when implementing new services at the ATM."

The Agilis® software application is designed with an open architecture, reducing the time and cost of implementing advanced transactions. Via the Agilis platform, U.S. Bank offers advanced ATM functionality, such as image-enabled deposits, stamp purchases, statement printing, preference designation and charitable donations.
