In recent months, high-profile department stores Target and Neiman Marcus have fallen victim to cybercriminals and in the process their data, along with millions of customers’ credit card information, suffered a major breach (1). Electronic Commerce International, a leader in payment processing solutions and business services, today issued a statement to ensure their merchants that ECI continues to be a trusted partner in protecting merchants from similar data breaches and cyber-attacks.
“As we’ve seen with the recent data breaches at Neiman Marcus and Target, in which millions of customers’ credit and debit card information was compromised, it’s clear that cybercriminals are a very serious threat to merchants and consumers,” stated Jim Anderson, CEO of ECI. “As a First Data ISO, we offer unparalleled protection to merchants and their customers, at an affordable price of just pennies per transaction.”
ECI knows how important it is to protect merchants from sophisticated cybercrimes, and understands what it takes to stay one step ahead of the most advanced cyber criminals.
As a First Data ISO, ECI knows that the best way to reduce cardholder risk is to ensure that consumer credit and debit card information is never available to criminals. ECI offers the First Data TransArmor Solution to protect cardholder data beginning the moment the consumer swipes the card until it reaches First Data systems for processing. The data is encrypted and tokenized for maximum protection.
