Calls are delivered into a secure environment from your existing phone line or phone system. Once within the cloud your client can make immediate payment to your bank account. You simply enter their payment details including the amount to be paid and then transfer the call to the Compliant Cloud, allowing your client to enter their credit card number using their telephone keypad. The call is then returned to the operator to finish the call; which is all compliant with PCI DSS.
Card fraud and payment card breaches are an ongoing battle for the banks so PCI compliance is a top priority for merchants and businesses that process electronic payments. There are approximately 288 PCI DSS controls that companies need to comply with in order to protect not only data at rest, but also data in transit. The consequences of not being PCI compliant could cost up to £10,000 which is levied by banks and credit card institutions.
There are two main ways that merchants are asked to demonstrate their compliance with PCI: Merchants may either indicate compliance by working through a self-reporting checklist on their own, or they may be required to undergo a full audit by a certified third-party security expert known as a Qualified Security Assessor.
