ATLANTA and DUBLIN, Jan. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Bluefin, the leading provider of payment security technologies and PCI-validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE) solutions for retail, hospitality, healthcare, and higher education today announced its partnership with Irish-based Retail inMotion, the LSG Group's onboard retail expert brand. Through this partnership, users of the Retail inMotion onboard retail management platform will benefit from Bluefin's PCI-validated P2PE solution.
Retail inMotion specializes in the development and procurement of onboard retail products, complete management of buy-on-board programs, and end-to-end IT support of these programs through proprietary software solutions. The company serves major brands in the airline industry, including Cathay Pacific and more than 40 others worldwide.
Bluefin's PCI-validated P2PE technology secures credit and debit card transactions by encrypting all data within a PCI-approved point of entry device. This prevents 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), ensuring the highest level of security.
"Retail inMotion is a best in class provider to some of the largest airlines in the world, who will benefit from the security, PCI scope reduction and brand protection of PCI-validated P2PE," said Greg Cornwell, head of global sales for Bluefin. "As we have seen from breaches this year, the travel and hospitality industries are a major target for hackers, and we are very pleased to partner with Retail inMotion to secure payments for their travel industry clients."
Bluefin enables PCI-validated P2PE on partner platforms using their Decryptx® Decryption as a Service (DaaS) product. More than 125 connected partners including gateways, ISV's, and processors interact directly with Bluefin for the P2PE service.
"This is a great partnership for Retail inMotion and Bluefin," said Jan Blanchard, Chief Commercial Officer, Retail inMotion. "We are excited to lead the airline industry in providing this important security solution to our clients."
The benefits of the Bluefin and Retail inMotion P2PE solution include reducing PCI scope from 329 to 33 questions on the P2PE self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ), which in turn provides significant cost and efficiency savings; online management of the P2PE device process with Bluefin's P2PE Manager®; and seamless integration with Retail inMotion's platforms.
Bluefin provides the leading payment security platform that supports payment gateways, processors and ISV's in 30 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 (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. Bluefin is a Participating Organization (PO) of the PCI Security Standards Council (SSC) and is headquartered in Atlanta, with offices in New York, Chicago, Tulsa and Waterford, Ireland.
