The ATM Exchange, a provider of ATM refurbishing, parts, training and technical support, said that nine ATM processing networks have now approved its 3DESPlus solution, a Triple DES security solution for virtually all Diebold and NCR ATM models.

The networks include eFunds, Lynk, Fiserv Southwest, Fiserv EFT/CNS, Columbus Data Services, Metavante, NYCE, NETS, and Shazam.

Testing has also been completed for Elan and Visa DPS with final approval pending. "It is estimated that about 90% of the nearly 380,000 ATMs installed in the United States will still need to be replaced or upgraded to comply with Triple DES certification," the company said, estimating it has spent more than 3,000 man hours working with various bankcard and EFT processing organizations on their individual Triple DES compliance programs.
