Atlanta-based Bluefin Payment Systems will provide its Decryptx PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) Solution to Heartland Payment Systems’ clients seeking a PCI-validated P2PE solution.
Bluefin’s PCI-validated P2PE solution secures card transactions by encrypting all data within a PCI-approved point of entry swipe or keypad device, preventing clear-text cardholder data from being available in the device or the merchant’s system where it could be exposed to malware.
Decryptx brings the security of PCI-validated P2PE to Tier 1 and Tier 2 merchants with no change to their acquiring relationship. Heartland will integrate with Bluefin for Decryptx, and provide the solution to merchants on the Heartland platform.
Bluefin offers the most comprehensive suite of P2PE solutions in the industry. In March 2014, Bluefin was validated by the PCI Security Standards Council (SSC) for their PayConex P2PE payment platform. The company now offers three PCI-validated P2PE products, including PayConex P2PE Enhanced Gateway, Decryptx, and their QuickSwipe mobile payments P2PE solution.
