TenderCard Class A Certifies Gift and Loyalty Applications on Hypercom's Optimum T4200 Platform.

PHOENIX, Ariz. & EAST FALMOUTH, Mass. -- Hypercom Corporation (NYSE: HYC) and TenderCard[TM] today announced that TenderCard has Class A certified its proprietary gift and loyalty applications on the Optimum T4200 platform. The certification lets TenderCard's resellers and the thousands of merchants they serve quickly take advantage of Hypercom's new high performance PCI PED approved, 32-bit multi-application, high security card payment terminals.

Hypercom's T4200 platform features the highest security, largest memory and broadest feature set of any countertop device family of its kind. The recently introduced Optimum T4200 platform has also received MasterCard Worldwide Payment Terminal Security approval for IP and wireless transactions. The platform incorporates additional security features such as optional privacy shields, Triple DES DUKPT encryption to protect cardholder PINs, and utilizes HyperSafe[R]32, Hypercom's exclusive RSA-based security infrastructure to prevent the introduction of fraudulent applications. The platform is compliant with the European Union's RoHS requirements for hazardous substances.

"Hypercom's Optimum T4200 is an ideal platform for TenderCard's gift and loyalty applications because of its performance, large memory and ability to handle multi-step transactions quickly and efficiently," said Marilyn Quinn, Executive Vice President-Compliance of TenderCard, a pioneer of gift cards and loyalty programs for small- to mid-sized merchants, malls, associations and chains. "This certification will enable our resellers and merchants to compete with larger retailers by increasing both profits and store traffic."

"TenderCard's certification of the T4200 further validates that our advanced security, engineering, features and functions meet an array of merchant needs, and opens the door for their customers to take advantage of the best card payment terminals on the market today," said Heidi Goff, President and Managing Director, Americas, Hypercom Corporation.

Hypercom's Optimum T4200 family consists of six 32-bit multi-application terminals with a consistent "look and feel" and 19-key keypad layout. The TenderCard Class A certified terminals include models with dial only and Ethernet/SSL/dial backup connectivity. The new terminals join a full array of high-performance Optimum countertop, multi-lane, wireless and portable terminals that have been adopted by leading banks, retailers and independent sales organizations globally since Hypercom introduced its first 32-bit Optimum product in 2004.
