Together we offer an unparalleled solution for contact centers and phone-based environments to take payments securely without the risk of sensitive cardholder data entering the customers' network," said James Barham, CEO of PCI Pal, in a statement. "We've also signed our first joint customer contract with 8x8 in North America. This contract further strengthens our strategic market position as the preferred solution provider for secure payments to the high-growth [contact center-as-a-service] space."

"8x8 is helping to transform the way the world communicates, and we've worked hard to become the leading choice for businesses looking for powerful, seamless services to meet all of their communications, collaboration, and customer experience needs."
