Bluefin Payment Systems rolls P2PE solution on the Merchant Link platform

Wednesday 14 September 2016 14:42 CET | News

Bluefin Payment Systems has announced the availability of its point-to-point encryption (P2PE) solution on the Merchant Link platform.

Merchant Link specializes in gateway and data security solutions for hotels, restaurants and retail locations. With Bluefin’s Decryptx Decryption as a Service (DaaS) product, Merchant Link can now provide PCI-validated P2PE through their current TransactionLink integrations, requiring no change to a merchant’s transactional flow or processing relationship.

Bluefin’s PCI-validated P2PE solution 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. Data decryption is only done offsite in a Bluefin hardware security module (HSM).

The University of California San Diego (UCSD) Starbucks campus location was the first client to take advantage of the combined Merchant Link/Bluefin solution using the PCI P2PE approved Ingenico iSC 250 terminal, with both PCI-validated P2PE and EMV. Bluefin and Merchant Link will be releasing a case study on the implementation in September 2016.
