London, England, February 6th, 2019 -Anderson Zaks, a leading omni-channel Payment Service Provider (PSP) based in the UK, has launched a new service offering the ID TECH SREDKey, to secure card not present payments in contact centres. Card details are encrypted by the ID TECH device so that they are never recorded or remembered by the merchants IT systems, even in memory, significantly reducing the merchants PCI scope and further protecting the consumer.
The new solution, which is PCI-PTS certified, encrypts the card number within the keypad before it is sent to be processed, meaning that the merchant is not handling actual card data. This avoids the usual scenario where a merchant uses a standard terminal or a software application to record payment card information which then needs to be protected under PCI regulations.
Designed for payments in sectors such as insurance where the client deals direct, utility companies, and service companies, the MagStripe reader and LCD display on the SREDKey also means that the service can be used to process card present transactions by businesses such as hotels, dentists and vets, amongst many others. The Anderson Zaks and ID TECH SREDKey integrated solution does not require a driver to be installed, but instead works via a virtual terminal, and with its published API means that bespoke, secure solutions for MOTO payments can be set up within days.
Anderson Zaks recently announced its collaboration with Bluefin for its PCI-validated P2PE solutions that devalue credit card and debit data with immediate encryption upon swipe or dip in the PCI-approved point of entry device, preventing clear-text cardholder data from being accessible in the event of a data breach.
Iain High, CEO at Anderson Zaks commented; While the regulations for taking card not present transactions continue to grow, so too do the likelihood of a major data breach. One way to deal with this is for merchants to ensure that they never handle actual card data, if it is not on their system, it cant be compromised.
The combination of the Anderson Zaks RedCard and Bluefin payment processing service, together with the ID TECH SREDKey, is the only service of its type currently available in Europe, and as such, is a game-changer. We are already seeing a great deal of interest in this from our existing customers, and are currently installing it at several customer sites.
Anderson Zaks provides a global, integrated payment processing environment for retailers and merchants through the companys RedCard Payment Gateway, which includes EPOS, Payment Page, Virtual Terminal, UPT and Cloud processing. The company serves over 15,000 sites and provides seamless integration between the merchants and Payment applications, supporting all UK and Irish acquirers as well as many from across continental Europe.
