SALT LAKE CITY, March 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Galileo Processing, Inc. ("Galileo") the leading provider of next-generation financial payment processing solutions, today announced a new suite of solutions that enable payment card issuing banks and payment card program managers to leverage the power of cloud computing while ensuring they meet required levels of security, performance, availability and regulatory compliance.

With Galileo Cloud Processing, each client has a dedicated virtual environment that is not shared with any other client.  Importantly, this means that clients can preserve their intellectual property and program innovation while not being affected by changes to other clients' environments.  Clients are now empowered to have control over the timing of when new features and functionality are released into their environment.  Leveraging Galileo's extensive library of APIs, clients can develop their own applications and unique functionality in support of their card programs.  Using Galileo Analytics, clients are able to generate detailed reporting and view their virtual environment's capacity and usage.

"Although limited cloud computing concepts have been claimed by a few start-ups in the financial services space they have typically been lacking in areas of importance to banks and prepaid program managers, such as processing scale, platform capability, security, availability and ease of integration," said Matt Bentley, Chief Architect for Galileo.  "Galileo has the deep technical experience and best-of-breed technology infrastructure to help their clients maximize and exceed their goals in launching new card programs."

"Galileo's Cloud Computing environment is especially useful for national and regional banks that are looking for a quick implementation but desire a full range of prepaid products such as consumer reloadable, travel, payroll and gift," said Clay Wilkes, Chief Executive Officer for Galileo.   "The combination of a powerful technical environment with unrivaled breadth of prepaid card portfolio experience and a world class service delivery organization is why Galileo will continue to be the processor of choice for issuers and program managers."

Galileo was founded on the idea of continuously innovating to provide reliable, secure and feature-rich payment processing services and has been in operation for more than ten years. Today, Galileo is the recognized leader in advanced payment processing solutions, supporting more than 1,000 programs throughout the United States and Canada.
