Computop, the global payment processor, and Eckoh (AIM: ECK), the global provider of Secure Payment products and Customer Contact solutions, are partnering to further augment payment security for card-not-present (CNP) payments. Through this relationship, retailers benefit from enhanced payment security across every channel, increasing customer satisfaction.
Rapid innovation, change in consumer preferences and unpredictable external factors mean businesses must remain agile while still offering premium payment security. Computop provides retailers worldwide with innovative, secure omnichannel solutions for payment processing and fraud prevention. Its Paygate payment platform processes payments across every channel, including e-commerce, at the POS and via mobile devices.
Eckoh provides PCI DSS-compliant secure payment solutions to many of the largest enterprises in the UK and US, including many Fortune 500 companies, to ensure that sensitive payment and personal data never enters the contact center environment when a CNP payment is taken, giving a simple and effective way to minimize fraud risk, secure sensitive data and become PCI DSS compliant. Together, Computop and Eckoh provide retailers with the payment security they need to stay nimble, engender consumer trust and meet PCI requirements.
“As a trusted payment service provider, we are always looking to partner with best-in-class providers to offer a full, end-to-end suite of value-added services,” said Briana Kovacs, Vice President of Partnerships, Computop. “Computop and Eckoh’s joint solution enables companies to securely accept preferred forms of card-not-present payments while maintaining enhanced customer service. This enables retailers to provide consumers with the secure payment options they desire while driving customer satisfaction.”
“We’re excited to partner with Computop to help their customers reach new levels of security and compliance,” says Dan Arntz, President of US Operations for Eckoh. “PCI 4.0 is just around the corner and will introduce even stricter regulations to protect sensitive consumer data. At the same time, you have cybercriminals that are becoming even more aggressive and cunning. Partnering with a reputable company like Computop allows us to extend our simple, secure solutions to their customers — which secures consumer data for card-not-present transactions while easing the burden of PCI compliance.”
