Microsoft Windows 10 Internet of Things (IoT) Enterprise Software Migration for ATMs
What You Need to Know
Starting on January 14th, 2020, all support for the Windows 7 operating systems on ATMs will end which puts your ATM fleet at risk while operating on an unsupported system. To protect your brand, customer experience, and remain compliant, you will need to migrate to Windows 10. This system will be supported through 2026 and includes advanced defense against cyber and fraud threats, end-user enhancements to keep pace with advancing technology and will maintain consistency with other platforms migrating to Windows 10. Additionally, this upgrade will assist with maintaining compliance and ensuring your fleet is PCI-ready.
So, are you ready to make the switch? Here is what you need to know:
THREE migration options available:
- Software Only – includes upgrades to OS, platform and application software
- Processor Upgrade & Software – includes upgrading the processor and required software
- System Replacement – upgrading to a new system with the new software (best option for hardware that can’t support a processor upgrade)
Implementation can be done remotely or via a scheduled call with your ATM manufacturer.
Migration can be a long process and as seen with the last operating system upgrade industry-wide, planning can save you frustration, risk, and downtime of your fleet.
Unsure where to begin?
Start with evaluating your fleet’s hardware, software, and network configurations. Determine whether an upgrade or full replacement makes sense for your ATM strategy and then evaluate the best method to deploy the upgrade.
Migration rights time frame is 24 months and allows for the purchase of Windows 10, but you can install and/or continue to run Windows 7. Once the purchase has been made, you have 24 months to install the upgrade without incurring additional upgrade fees. If migration fails to happen within the 24 months, you may be required to purchase a Windows 7 license with all initial system orders.
