Diebold Nixdorf (NYSE: DBD), a global leader in driving connected commerce, today announced it is the first automated teller machine (ATM) manufacturer ready to support the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system.
The move to the latest operating system and application platform is an opportunity for financial institutions to benefit from greater security against modern cyber threats, meet regulatory compliance standards, and enhance the consumer experience with future-looking services and transactions.
"We are not only the first ATM manufacturer readily available to support Windows 10, but have been shipping processors that are Windows 10 compatible since mid-2014," said Ulrich Näher, Diebold Nixdorf senior vice president, systems. "This is a true testament to our company's 'future-proof' development mentality and protecting our customers' investments - that meet the needs of today and anticipate those of tomorrow."
In addition to following the Intel® and Microsoft support guidelines, Diebold Nixdorf's migration to a 64-bit operating system provides customers with the best experience, allowing them to take full advantage of the memory and processor features, such as advanced security. Diebold Nixdorf is the only known manufacturer to invest in this approach, but has done so to proactively prepare financial institutions for a future where 32-bit versions of Windows 10 will not be available. All current applications can continue to run in 32-bit, as needed.
"We have been working diligently with other industry groups to ensure our customers are better prepared and to make this migration as easy as possible," said Alan Kerr, Diebold Nixdorf senior vice president, software. "Ultimately, this is about more than just migrating to the latest operating system—it's about improving and modernizing consumer experiences to advance connected commerce in the financial services industry. The scale and flexibility of our software solutions enable us to serve as a true partner to financial institutions of all sizes as we navigate these changes and drive the future of consumer transactions."
The release of Diebold Nixdorf's Windows 10 supported foundational software packages will provide financial institutions and partners with the most time to test and certify their respective applications prior to the end of support for Windows 7. Migration to Windows 10 will be necessary to complete by Jan. 14, 2020.
