Over the past several months there has been some confusion on whether or not Financial Institutions need to upgrade your ATMs and ITMs to Windows 10. FIs DO NOT need to upgrade to Windows 10 until 2023 as Microsoft has released a Windows 7 extension. Prior to this announcement, FIs were preparing to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to either upgrade their ATM cores, purchase new software and/or replace the ATM completely.
Affordable 3-year extension option: If you have Cook Security Group’s RemoteView ATM Windows Patch Management module currently installed on your ATM, the upgrade can be as little as $800 annually. This option includes the RemoteView Windows Patch Management, the Win 7 license extension, RemoteView Security+, and RemoteView Hard Drive Encryption. FI’s can still upgrade to Windows 10 as an option, but most are choosing to defer the large CapEx and fully depreciate their assets.
The 3-year Win 7 extension option allows FI’s to buy time. If you’d like to learn more about RemoteView ATM, the Win 7 extension option or other Win 10 information, please contact your Cook Security Group Account Manager or click here.
