An ICT and infrastructure solutions provider, Inlaks Computers, has confirmed the deployment of Hyosung Windows 7 Automated Teller Machines in banks.
This, according to the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Inlaks Computers, Mr. Femi Adeoti, is coming ahead of Microsoft’s announcement of support stoppage for Windows XP in April 2014.
He said the move was also in line with the company’s core vision of delivering greater values and benefits to banks in the country.
Adeoti, in a statement by the firm, was quoted as saying, “The deployment began early this year and some banks have already taken advantage of Hyosung Windows seven ATMs. The company still has large stocks of the products available to meet customers’ demands.”
The Executive Director of the company, Mr. Rajiv Bhatnagar, also said that Hyosung Windows 7 ATMs delivered expanded security solutions with tighter control of process to transmit communication using a technique known as Session Zero Isolation, which made it difficult for malware to exploit process and session boundaries.
Microsoft had announced that support for Windows XP would cease in April 2014.
The latest move, therefore, had put Inlaks ahead of the companies delivering ATMs in Nigeria, the firm said.
According to Bhatnagar, Microsoft Windows 7 technology, among others, improves consumer experience as it comes with new features such as object selection, rotation, zoom out, scrolling and gesture functions on the ATMs.
The Director, Sales and Strategy (Infrastructure Business), Mr. Tope Dare, said Microsoft Windows 7 enhanced operational and maintenance efficiencies by enabling its installation technology known as ImageX useful.
“This is in addition to simplifying connectivity using the new direct access utility which gives the choice to connect via low cost bandwidth for off premise installation without the need for an extra VPN utility,” he explained.
The statement noted that Hyosung was a fast growing ATM in the self-service market in Nigeria, owning its success to Inlaks Computers’ customer-centric approach to building a long term and mutually beneficial partnership with Hyosung ATM customers.
It listed some of the banks on the platform as First Bank, StanbicIBTC, Union Bank, Heritage Bank, Unity Bank, Jaiz Bank, Fidelity Bank, Keystone Bank, Access Bank, Skye Bank, Sterling Bank and Zenith Bank, with a few microfinance banks.
Microsoft Corporation announced to its clients last year that the switch to Windows 7 had security and privacy implications that could have significant impact on their businesses, hence the need to take urgent action.
