Diebold Partners with Mosaic Software and Thales E-Security to Implement Triple-DES Solution at Anheuser-Busch Employees' Credit Union First Diebold Customer to Achieve Total Triple-DES Compliance

from ATM to Processor



    NORTH CANTON, Ohio, Aug. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Diebold,
 Incorporated (NYSE:   DBD) through its relationships with Mosaic Software and
 Thales e-Security, has successfully installed a Triple-DES solution at the
 Anheuser-Busch Employees' Credit Union (ABECU) as part of a system-wide
 upgrade. The credit union is the first Diebold customer to achieve end-to-end,
 Triple-DES compliance in an automated teller machine (ATM) network.

     "This network upgrade achieved all of our goals and more," said Calvin
 Curdt, ABECU vice president, Information Systems. "Not only are we Triple-DES
 compliant from end-to-end, but we also enjoy improved reporting, increased
 functionality and enhanced uptime."
     ABECU's new Triple-DES capability enhances data security for its members
 and brings the credit union into compliance with upcoming requirements that
 all ATMs tied into the Visa or MasterCard networks be Triple-DES compliant by
 April, 2005. The Triple Data Encryption Standard, or Triple-DES, is a higher
 level of encryption used to better protect electronically transmitted data
 like personal identification numbers.
     "Our customers are looking ahead and taking the necessary steps to upgrade
 their hardware and software for the new Triple-DES standards," said John H.
 Tyler, Diebold vice president, Software and Services. "When financial
 institutions make other improvements to their networks, they should also take
 the opportunity to implement this new, higher security encryption standard.
 Diebold's integrated offering of market-leading applications like Mosaic's
 Postilion Software and Thales' e-Security Host Security Module enables us to
 be our customer's strategic partner and provide a total retail delivery
 solution that achieves Triple-DES compliance."
     ABECU's primary goal in their recent network upgrade was to take advantage
 of Postilion's advanced transaction processing system that is based on the
 Microsoft(R) Windows(R) operating system. By implementing Mosaic's Postilion
 and Thales' HSMs, they also achieved Triple-DES compliance while greatly
 expanding their ATM network functionality.
     Through reseller agreements with Mosaic Software and Thales e-Security,
 Diebold provides a comprehensive ATM hardware and software solution able to
 handle ATM driving, switching, network management, settlement and
 reconciliation. The Diebold solution incorporating Postilion lays the
 foundation for future enhanced functionality that allows credit unions and
 other financial institutions to explore new customer service options and fully
 develop their ATM networks as retail delivery channels.
     Postilion's reliable, scalable, open architecture allows easy
 implementation of new products and services at ATMs, kiosks and other self-
 service devices, and allows financial institutions to run numerous types of
 terminals and transactions on the same software platform. The Thales
 e-Security HSM serves a wide range of transaction volumes and provides a cost-
 effective platform for securing payment transactions, including traditional
 debit and credit card-based payments or the newer EMV card payments.
