Major Bank in the Western Pacific Integrates Trusted Security Solutions' A98-R to Remotely Manage ATM Keys Across Millions of Square Miles

Bank Tackles Unique Geographical Challenge -- Implements Remote Key Transport to Greatly Ease Distribution of Cryptographic Keys for ATMs Spanning Numerous Pacific Islands

CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwire - November 1, 2007) - Trusted Security Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of secure ATM key management solutions, today announced that one of the western pacific's largest banks selected the A98-R Remote Key Establishment System to remotely create and distribute the cryptographic keys for its vast network of ATMs.

Following its tradition of personalized community banking, the bank quickly expanded its ATM network over the last twenty years and committed to maximizing convenience and customer service by relying on the latest technology to bring its customers fast, updated financial information. Throughout its growth, the bank also prioritized the security of its data while still efficiently servicing its geographically expansive region of customers.

Trusted Security Solutions' A98-R Remote Key solution eliminates the need for the firm to manually load ATM encryption keys, greatly reducing travel and logistical costs associated with numerous island locations. Used to protect PIN security at ATMs, unique encryption keys are needed to meet strict ANSI security standards. A98-R removes the headaches associated with manually distributing keys, works with existing systems, and greatly reduces key management costs -- a significant savings for an organization that covers such an immense western pacific region.

"We're pleased to announce that one of the largest banks in the western pacific is one of our latest A98-R customers," said Dennis "Abe" Abraham, President of Trusted Security Solutions. "Servicing such a remote and geographically dispersed customer base, the bank is likely one of the world's financial institutions that benefit most from A98-R's remote key creation and distribution capabilities. Trusted Security Solutions is honored to assist them in leveraging the latest technology to cost-effectively offer the most convenient, secure services possible."
