MD-based Merchant Link will use GA-based Bluefin’s Decryptx PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) Solution to enterprises and retailers utilizing Merchant Link’s TransactionLink middleware for EMV and contactless payment acceptance on integrated POS (iPOS) systems.
Decryptx allows Merchant Link to provide major acquirers and processors the company’s PCI-validated P2PE solution through a simple API connection with Bluefin, with no change to the merchant relationship or current transaction flow – making it an ideal solution for Tier 1 and Tier 2 merchants.
Merchant Link specializes in gateway and data security solutions for over 300,000 hotel, restaurant and retail locations, enabling more than 4 billion transactions annually.
Bluefin’s PCI-validated P2PE solution suite 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. In addition to preventing the loss of cardholder data in the event of a breach, PCI-validated P2PE also helps companies reduce their PCI compliance scope; the PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption Solution reduces the 326 SAQ D to 35 questions for retail and call center environments.
Merchant Link is a leading provider of cloud-based payment gateway and data security solutions. Removing the risk and hassle of payments for more than 300,000 hotel, restaurant and retail locations, our mission is to deliver secure payment solutions that are flexible and meet merchants’ changing needs.
