ATLANTA, Jan. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Bluefin, the leading provider of payment security technologies and PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) solutions for retail, transportation, hospitality, healthcare, and higher education, today announced the addition of Philip M. Dolan as chief marketing officer, based at the company's Atlanta headquarters.
A seasoned executive from the consumer products, pharmaceutical, and software industries, Philip has held senior marketing, sales, and product positions with Colgate-Palmolive, Heineken, and The Coca-Cola Company. Mr. Dolan joins Bluefin from Waystar, a Bain Capital-backed provider of cloud-based healthcare revenue cycle technology, which provides a unified platform that manages insurance claims, patient billing and payments, and reporting and analytics.
Founded in 2007, Bluefin has experienced exponential growth in the last five years with the introduction of the company's flagship payment security products, including PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) as both a stand-alone and integrated solution for point-of-sale (POS) credit card payment security, iFrame Encryption for Ecommerce security and the company's P2PE Manager® for chain of custody and secure endpoint management.
The company currently has over 100 connected partners enabled for its P2PE products, serving government, merchants, healthcare organizations, travel and hospitality businesses, educational institutions, and other enterprises in 29 countries. Additionally, Bluefin recently announced the grant of its first European patent covering its Decryptx® and P2PE Manager solutions, bringing its current IP portfolio to 14 patents across the U.S., EU and Japan, with an additional 17 payment security patents pending.
"It's an exciting time to be joining the Bluefin team," said Dolan. "The company is at the leading edge of the payment security solutions that the world's largest industries are just beginning to adopt. Enterprises and SMB's alike have come to realize that payment and data security is strategic to protecting brand reputation, legal liability, and consumer trust. Even with advances like EMV, there is no substitute for point-to-point data encryption to address payment security threats. One breach can kill a business. I joined Bluefin to assist in taking the company to the next level and raise awareness of the industry's best solutions to protect businesses and consumers."
John M. Perry, Bluefin's chief executive officer, said about Dolan, "We're thrilled to have Phil aboard at Bluefin. He brings strong commercial leadership including recent experience in healthcare where protection of both personal and financial data is essential. Our reputation as the leader in payment security has grown along with our ranks of new employees, partners, and clients, yet we still are in the early innings. We have some exciting years ahead."
Bluefin provides the leading payment security platform that supports payment gateways, processors and ISV's in 29 countries. Bluefin's secure payment platform is key to the holistic approach to data security. Designed to complement EMV and tokenization, Bluefin's PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) solutions provide a solid security defense against current and future data breaches. Bluefin supports point of sale solutions for retail, mobile, call center and kiosk/unattended environments, and secure Ecommerce technologies.
