Sycurio.Voice is a globally trusted cloud-based solution for automatically securing your customers’ payment card, banking, and personal data during telephone and automated IVR transactions.

A cloud solution that's flexible for your needs.

In call and IVR transactions customers simply enter their card or bank payment details directly into their telephone keypad or via speech recognition. Their sensitive data is then securely passed directly to your data processor through our secured platform - completely bypassing your agent, network and your systems.  This proven approach significantly reduces your risks of data breach and the costs and complexity of maintaining your PCI DSS compliance.

Sycurio.Voice: how it works.

call recording

Step 1:  Your customer calls the contact centre and begins their conversation.

Step 2:  When the customer needs to share sensitive data, your agent initiates SecureMode. This masks the Dual-Tone Multi-Frequency (DTMF) tones as the customer inputs their data using their telephone keypad or by speech recognition.

Step 3:  The captured secure data is dynamically routed to your processor – entirely bypassing the company network. No sensitive data enters the environment, so you can record the call from start to end.

Step 4:  Sycurio.Voice removes the transaction almost entirely from the scope of your organization’s PCI DSS compliance obligations.
