West at Home Increases Credit Card Data Security with PhoneFactor
Two-Factor Authentication Meets Payment Card Industry Requirements for Secure Access

OVERLAND PARK, KS (September 16, 2008) – PhoneFactor, a leading provider of security products and services, today announced that West Corporation, a leading provider of outsourced communication solutions, has selected its phone-based authentication technology for their home-based agent program, West at Home. PhoneFactor helps West protect its clients’ customers from potential identify theft and credit card fraud.

West Corporation was seeking a two-factor authentication solution that complied with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) for their home-based agents throughout the country. The solution needed to be simple to use and rapid to deploy to their thousands of home-based agents, as well as affordable to setup and maintain. After carefully evaluating several options, West chose PhoneFactor to secure remote access to the call center systems used by their home-based agents to take orders and process credit cards.

“The PhoneFactor solution gives us the strong two-factor authentication that we need to meet the industry’s strict regulatory requirements,” stated Rachel Roberts, Information Services Project Manager for West Corporation. “PhoneFactor fit all of our requirements and gave us a great alternative to costly security token solutions.”
