Trusted Security Solutions Inc., a provider of secure ATM key management solutions, has announced that its A98 ATM Initial Key Establishment System will be deployed at Vantage West Credit Union, the largest CU in southern Arizona.
As part of a systemwide ATM network change, Vantage West needed to change the 3DES keys in all of their ATMs — ideally in less than one week. Using manual procedures, this would take hours, if not days, to accomplish. The selection of A98 for remote key loading drastically shortened the schedule.
"With the A98 Remote Key Loading module, we were able to push a new key to each ATM easily whenever one was needed," said Stefan Harris, VP of technology at Vantage West CU. "Compared to how we would have done it the old way, it was effortless. I am very pleased with the installation, support, and follow through provided by the personnel at Trusted Security."
