Bluefin’s PayConex PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) Solution is now certified for Mobile Payments.The Bluefin solution becomes the first North American mobile solution to receive PCI validation.
PCI-validated P2PE encrypts cardholder data within a PCI P2PE approved point of entry device so it does not reach the merchant’s system or network as clear-text cardholder data – where it could be accessible to a fraudster in the event of a data breach.
Companies can choose to use the QuickSwipe Mobile P2PE Solution with an iOS phone or tablet, or they can choose the complete QuickSwipe mPOS solution, including the tablet stand, cash register and Bluetooth printer.
Bluefin Payments Systems says the use of the PCI P2PE approved Prima M device in conjunction with PCI-validated PayConex P2PE is an optimal security solution for the millions of global merchants conducting mobile payments
In November 2014, Decryptx, the company’s Decryption as a Service (DaaS) product, was introduced. Decryptx enables PayConex P2PE for Enterprises and Tier 1 Merchants with no change to the businesses’ current acquiring relationship. Bluefin’s partners, processors, and service providers can easily add Bluefin’s PCI-validated mobile P2PE capability to their products through the company’s Decryptx offering.
