Bluefin and Paya Partner to Offer Secure, PCI-Validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE)

Press Release from Bluefin Payment Systems

ATLANTA, May 22, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Bluefin, the leading provider of payment security solutions, today announced its partnership with Paya (pie-ya), Inc. a leading integrated payments processing and business solutions provider. Paya will provide Bluefin's PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) security solution to partners and customers using Paya's Payments Platform.

With a payment processing legacy of more than two decades, Paya uses its connectivity suite and data capabilities to create amazing experiences and transaction visibility for its clients. Paya's Payments Platform offers the confidence that their business and their customers' transaction data is secure in-store, online, or on-the-go. Through its partnership with Bluefin, Paya further strengthens its enhanced security suite while reducing PCI scope for clients without any changes to the payment transaction flow.

Bluefin enables PCI-validated P2PE on partner platforms using their Decryptx® Decryption as a Service (DaaS) product, which allows gateways, applications, and processors to connect directly to Bluefin for P2PE service.

"2017 closed out with a record 1,579 data breaches in the U.S. and over 178 million consumer records compromised," said Greg Cornwell, Head of Bluefin's Global Sales. "And if 2017 taught us anything, it is that fraudsters do not care if you are a restaurant, retailer, healthcare organization, or enterprise. As long as you process credit card payments, you are their target. Bluefin's P2PE solution is ideal for any company or organization looking to secure its in-person, mobile, and call center credit card and debit card payments. We could not be more pleased to partner with an esteemed provider such as Paya to enable PCI-validated P2PE for their clients."

Bluefin's PCI-validated P2PE solution secures credit and debit card transactions by encrypting all data within a PCI-approved point of entry device, preventing clear-text cardholder data from being available within the device, or in the merchant's system where exposure to malware is possible. Data decryption always occurs offsite in a Bluefin hardware security module (HSM).

"As a trusted technology partner we provide exceptional business solutions in the payments domain. Naturally, data security constitutes an essential part of our solutions," said Peter Helderman, Director of Product Management, Payment Acceptance and Security at Paya. "Payment data can be some of the most sought after by hackers. Whereas our baseline solutions already provide solid protection to our merchants, our partnership with Bluefin provides us with the opportunity of offering a fully PCI assessed and listed solution."
