Eckoh is celebrating its patented payment security solution proving, once again, that it meets more than just PCI DSS compliance

PCI Excellence 2020 900

Foreign exchange businesses are often targets for fraudsters and despite implementing some rigorous security protocols themselves, they are often left exposed in places. Last night's PCI Excellence Awards saw Eckoh's CallGuard pick up the PCI/GDPR award for the fourth consecutive year for its implementation with a major global foreign exchange business. The award was collected by Tristan King, Simon Shepherd and Sam Killin (L to R in photo) plus Ashley Burton.

CallGuard prevents card and personal data from entering contact center environments - so in the event of a fraud or data breach, there's nothing to steal. With the agent and customer able to stay in contact throughout the engagement the customer experience is also enhanced.

The business wanted to work with an expert in secure payment technology and so turned to Eckoh whose solution is proven to be quick and simple to implement. As Eckoh use their own solution, in their own PCI DSS compliant contact center, the business was reassured that the solution would work well for them. Removing their contact center from the scope of PCI DSS was a major achievement that eases the whole compliance burden and brings benefits to the business, the agents and the customer.

The PCI Excellence Awards were created in response to merchants wanting proof that a solution really works, is sustainable and scalable. Being able to deliver on time and to budget was also another key proof point. As such these awards recognize those companies who can prove, through case studies and real examples, that their solutions can solve today's payment and data security challenges.

Nicky Hjerpe, Head of Marketing at Eckoh commented, "We're delighted to have won this award and to have our CallGuard solution recognized once again. Showcasing implementations like this can clearly show how a solution works, the ease of its implementation and how it will bring benefits now and in the future. What makes these awards particularly special is that they are awarded by people who know the industry and we're always happy to prove the effectiveness and simplicity of our solution. It's also good to see businesses such as this one taking those extra steps to make payments even more secure and help to combat Card Not Present crime in today's contact centers."
