Nomad launches CORTEX V3.0 at User Group Conference

26 March 2007

The CORTEX division of Nomad took the opportunity to launch Version 3.0 of its acclaimed CORTEX payments processing software at a recent User Group Conference held in Athens.

The new 64-bit release provides compliance for PCI-DSS (The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards, a world-wide benchmark mandated by the card schemes for the protection of cardholder identity and transaction information.) which was described by John Yeomans, Chief Executive of Nomad as being “A great fillip for the product and a good example of the continuing investment in, and development of the CORTEX product.”

Other important features of Version 3.0 include the announcement that it supports the Excrypt SSP7000 family of Host Security Modules from data security company Futurex. Commenting on this Brett Smith, President and CEO for Futurex said: “We are proud to add Nomad Software to our growing list of industry certifications. We feel that this partnership will not only be beneficial to both companies, but also to end-users by supplying them with the leading price performance, industry-compliant Triple-DES HSMs”.

Nomad’s User Group Conference was attended by more than forty of Nomad’s customers from the banking industry and was held in conjunction with the company’s local partner in Athens, Intracom IT Services. As part of the event attendees also heard presentations from selected industry partners, including Hewlett Packard, presenting a paper on its Itanium-based Integrity Servers, which are now a supported platform for CORTEX v3.0.

Martin Golding, Chief Operating Officer for Nomad CORTEX had this to say of the conference: “The two-day event has been a great success with much positive feedback from the delegates. The general feeling was that the presentations gave those that attended a huge amount of valuable industry information and the chance to share knowledge and experience with their counterparts was greatly appreciated, as was the excellent location of Athens.”
