Happy Valentine’s Day! On this most romantic of holidays, Bluefin was asked by PYMNTS.com what cool payment innovation our company was currently in love with. Ruston Miles, our SVP & GM, had no qualms answering that question – point-to-point encryption.
“‘Point-to-point encryption [P2PE] technology may assist merchants to reduce the scope of their cardholder data environment and annual PCI DSS assessments.’
That’s a direct quote from the PCI Security Standards Council. Bluefin is poised to bring this game-changing, scope-reducing technology to merchants and service providers worldwide. You asked us what payment innovation we are in love with and this is it! Now, if I can only find an I <3 P2PE Valentine’s card.”
Well, I’m not sure if they make cards declaring love for P2PE yet, but the fact remains that this payment innovation is a winner in security and savings for so many companies that are out of PCI compliance scope, or have massive call centers with attendants taking payments over the phone 24/7, etc. In the next month, Bluefin will be introducing our P2PE solution, as part of our new gateway product introduction – stay tuned for that announcement. But in the meantime, make sure to take a moment today and tell your favorite payment innovation that you love them.
