Atlanta-based Bluefin Payment Systems has teamed USAePay. The partnership will further enhance data security for companies using the USAePay gateway through with the addition of Bluefin’s Decryptx PCI-Validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) service, which protects consumer payment data in transit.
USAePay provides merchants with the best service available, offering an array of different payment solutions for retail, e-commerce, and mobile. USAePay’s payment gateway makes processing transactions fast, easy, and safe with its Level 1 PCI Compliance. USAePay is proud to enforce the latest and strictest security requirements in the payment industry and works on developing the newest methods for accepting payments securely.
Decryptx PCI-validated P2PE 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. Bluefin became the first North American PCI-validated P2PE solution provider in March 2014 and in November, the company introduced Decryptx, its Decryption as a Service (DaaS) P2PE product. Decryptx provides all of the security of Bluefin’s PCI-validated P2PE solution suite with no change to a merchant’s processing or acquiring relationship.
Bluefin is a Participating Organization (PO) of the PCI Council and a validated Level 1 PCI DSS Compliant Service Provider. The company’s Chief Innovation Officer, Ruston Miles, assisted with the development of the recently updated P2PE standard, as part of an industry feedback group for PCI SSC.
Through the partnership, USAePay clients will have access to PCI-validated P2PE through the USAePay gateway, with Bluefin providing the devices, key injection, shipping and chain of custody requirements.
