Level Four and GALITT Partner to Offer EMV Compliant ATM Testing in Canada

LONDON, March 2, 2010--     Level Four, the leading provider of automated ATM software
testing solutions, today announced that the company will be extending its
partnership with GALITT, the leading provider of advanced test solutions for
transactional systems and EMV cards into the Canadian market. The partnership
combines Level Four's ATM test solution, BRIDGE:test, with GALITT's
KaNest-ICC(TM) EMV card simulator to provide a comprehensive testing solution
for EMV compliant ATM networks.

    The partnership will enable Canadian-based banks to benefit
from the combination of best of breed solutions in their respective areas. As
migration to EMV continues worldwide, Level Four and GALITT will build on
their success in France to promote their joint offering in Canada.

    Ian Kerr, CEO, Level Four, said: "EMV migration significantly
increases the scope of testing required at the ATM as there is a much greater
number of components interacting with each other. Our partnership with GALITT
brings in a specialist EMV simulation solution to complement the
functionality of BRIDGE:test and will help us to provide best in class
testing solutions to new and existing clients that are migrating to EMV in

    Gerard de Moura, 'Managing Director' at GALITT, commented: "As
Canada becomes the latest in a long line of countries to move to the EMV
standard, we believe that our joint offering will take the pain out of
migration, helping to ensure maximum uptime for EMV compliant ATM networks.
As more and more countries adopt this standard, we will continue to work with
Level Four to promote our combined EMV offering worldwide."
