Have you deployed ‘Pause and Resume’ for your contact centre or are you just about to tackle phone payments? If so, discover how DataDivider can simply take out your agent desktops, network and back-end systems from PCI scope whilst your agents continue to listen to and enter cardholder data. Reduce you BAU costs or implement a call centre PCI de-scope strategy for the fraction of the cost of complex DTMF tone masking solutions. Sound impossible? Find out how by visiting DataDivider’s booth or attending our education session “Leveraging your PCI DSS investment for GDPR ”. In the past decade PCI forensic audits have only discovered a handful of telephony infrastructure related breaches so focus your risk based approach to where the real exposure lies. 

 
DataDivider provides the ability to de-scope desktops, data networks and backend systems for telephone, mail, fax, email and chat payments. Entering its eighth year as a PCI certified Level 1 Service Provider, DataDivider provides its solution to over 80 Level 1 to Level 4 merchants. Its unique patent pending technology provides the most cost effective approach to managing MOTO payments where the solution can be deployed in a matter of days and weeks as opposed to months and years. The DataDivider solution precludes the necessity of expensive and time consuming telephony and applications integration yet still achieves the objectives of keeping cardholder data segregated from the applications architecture.

De-scope your contact centres from PCI DSS whilst enhancing the customer/agent experience & GDPR compliance
CardEasy is Syntec's patented, award-winning DTMF solution for customer 'keypad payment by phone' and de-scopes your contact centre environment from PCI DSS controls, whilst ensuring your MOTO card payments and call recordings are PCI DSS compliant.
 
CardEasy is trusted by consumers, as it removes the need for them to read out their card numbers over the phone.  By asking them to enter their card numbers using the keypad of their own phone instead (Mid-call in conversation with the agent or via self-service IVR Autopay), PCI monitoring and audit requirements for the contact centre are reduced to the bare minimum.  The sensitive card numbers no longer enter your call centre environment or call recordings at all, cutting out compliance costs and hassle whilst improving customer service and trust. The agent/customer experience is not interrupted as the agent remains on the call throughout – no handoff to an awkward IVR system – and the system reduces average call times and reduces the mis-keying of card data too.

CardEasy was the winner of the PCI Excellence Award for the second time in January 2018 and won the Genesys 'Best Security Solution' award at Call & Contact Centre Expo in London in March 2018.   

Flexible CardEasy deployment 
CardEasy is supported by (and integrated with) the leading industry payment gateways and is designed to be universally quick and easy to implement.
Working either as a fully hosted managed service; partially premise-based (CPE); or entirely cloud-based for larger enterprises and international use, it is designed to be CRM and telephony agnostic – you can rely on our in-house advice and expertise, but CardEasy works with your existing telephony and back-office systems, there’s no requirement to use ours.

PCI Pal is a suite of solutions designed to help run your customer contact operations in adherence with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).  PCI Pal solutions have been developed for the contact centre market by a team of contact centre specialists.  When it comes to PCI compliance, PCI Pal are pioneers in the customer contact space.
 
We have a long history of agent assisted and fully automated contact centre payment solutions.  From our own experience we know how difficult and costly adhering to PCI compliance can be.  Our aim is to make it as easy as possible for you to become compliant for all of your payment needs.
 
PCI compliance for any contact centre is a challenge, whether you have 20 staff or 2,000.  We have developed a pragmatic approach to compliance which marries risk reduction with operational efficiency.  As contact centre people, we believe strongly that the operational running of the contact centre must, above all else, be the priority.  PCI compliance should be achieved to benefit operations using a risk reduction and cost model quantifiable to payments, which are ultimately what PCI compliance is there to protect.
 
We are able to integrate our truly cloud based offerings through a variety of methods making the transition to compliant payments simple and low risk.  We cover a broad range of PCI environments with solutions across agent-assisted payments, automated payments, live agent outsourcing, call recording, and legacy data cleansing and protection.

TokenEx is a company founded on the principle of safeguarding our clients and their partners against the inherent risk of storing and sharing sensitive information. Focused on flexibility and custom solutions, the TokenEx Data Security Platform enables our clients to tokenise any data set across a range of environments and applications. Utilizing over twenty different token schemes, TokenEx secures the PCI and personal data of our clients to reduce their risk and meet their PCI DSS and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance obligations, while still enabling their business processes.

Multi-channel Acceptance
Almost every organisation that sells products and services accepts payments through multiple acceptance channels—e-commerce sites, point-of-sale terminals, contact centers, and mobile apps. TokenEx has solutions to tokenise payment data for each of these acceptance channels, dramatically lowering your scope for PCI compliance and risk of sensitive data loss. 

Processor Agnostic
Utilizing TokenEx’s Transparent Gateway solution, you are free to maintain relationships with as many payment processors and gateways as you wish, while maintaining a single unified vault of payment card tokens. TokenEx enables you to exchange data with any third-party API without putting your internal systems in scope for PCI compliance.

Any Data Set
TokenEx can tokenise and secure any data set including PCI, ACH, and personal data. Most tokenisation solutions from payment processors or other tokenisation service providers only address payment information leaving you exposed to the risk associated with other data sets. TokenEx can secure all sensitive data, enabling you to address all of your compliance obligations and data security risk utilising a single platform.

Utilizing Tokenisation for Pseudonymisation
The GDPR is now in effect, with strong requirements to protect personal data  “by design and by default.“ Though the GDPR doesn’t contain detailed technical requirements for data security, it does call out the use of pseudonymisation as an appropriate mechanism for data protection. Pseudonymisation, replacing identifying or sensitive data with a pseudonym, is synonymous with tokenisation, replacing sensitive data with a token, a technology utilized by the Payment Card Industry for years to protect PCI.

Blackfoot UK is an information risk, security and compliance specialist.  We help our customers to protect their information and data, but ultimately their brands, reputations and financial health.  Whilst our customers come from different industry sectors (retail, insurance, financial services), 80 per cent of our business is from personal referrals.  Why is this?
 
 We believe it’s because:   
  • We are specialists at what we do 
  • We provide honest, independent advice in plain English
  • We have a no-nonsense approach to consultancy
 
We are specialists at what we do - We’re experts in our field and we’re committed to keeping it that way.  Whether it’s data security, privacy or the latest on malware, hacking or cybercrime threats, we’ve got the specialists to help guide your business response.
 
We provide honest, independent advice in plain English - Blackfoot is a private company, which means we’re answerable to our customers and their interests, not external stock or stakeholders.  We’re here to do the best by your business. If you’d like our views on a particular product or solution, we’d be happy to help.  But because we’re independent, we don’t recommend, resell or receive commission on third party solutions. Data security and privacy is not always straight-forward.  Regulations evolve.  Standards overlap.  Cross-border cases are complex.  We’re well-versed with industry changes and can talk techie, but mostly we make things as simple as possible — and no simpler. 
 
We have a no-nonsense approach to consultancy - With us, what you see is what you get.  Our senior consultants work alongside customers throughout a project.  We help you learn from your mistakes, but as experienced consultants with proven methodologies we also help you learn from other people’s mistakes. 
 
Time, resource and budget are finite — and we understand this.  Our aim is to help you make the most intelligent use of your limited resources.  We certainly won’t recommend you spend £1,000 to protect £1.  In fact, we typically save our customers 70 per cent on average on their compliance budgets per year. 
This is all part of our no-nonsense approach, how we have earned our customers’ trust and built up long-term relationships over the years.

Eliminate costly PCI programs with Cardprotect from Semafone, a proven secure voice solution which enables contact centres to take payments over the phone without agents ever having to hear or see credit card details.
 
The award winning software allows a call - and the call recording - to continue as normal whilst the customer enters their credit card information into their telephone keypad. For complete security, Semafone's patented technology masks the Dual Tone Multi-Frequency (DTMF) tones from the cardholder's telephone and replaces them with a flat tone so they can't be recognised by the call centre agent or recorded on the call recording system. By shielding callers' payment card information and keeping sensitive data out of the call centre's infrastructure, Cardprotect helps to minimize the risks associated with potentially brand-damaging data breaches and fraud.
 
Semafone has achieved the four leading security and payment accreditations: ISO 27001:2013, PA DSS certification for its Cardprotect software, PCI DSS Level 1 Service Provider and is a Visa Level 1 Merchant Agent.
