Through the partnership, NeuLion’s College ticketing partners can get the reduced scope and cost savings of Bluefin’s PCI P2PE solution direct through the NeuLion® College Platform
September 19, 2017 – Atlanta, GA– Bluefin, the leading provider of PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) solutions for education, healthcare and enterprises, today announced a partnership with NeuLion College to provide Bluefin’s PCI-validated P2PE solution to their college ticketing partners through the company’s proprietary college platform.
NeuLion College is a leading technology provider that specializes in the digital video broadcasting, distribution and monetization of live and on-demand sports and entertainment content to any connected device. The NeuLion® College Platform enables organizations to efficiently extend their audience reach across a broad range of devices and grow new revenue streams.
Through the partnership with Bluefin, NeuLion College can now provide their college ticketing partners with Bluefin’s PCI-validated P2PE solution directly through their platform, enhancing payment security and reducing PCI scope with no change to the payment transaction flow. Bluefin enables PCI-validated P2PE on partner platforms with their Decryptx Decryption as a Service (DaaS) product, which allows gateways, applications, and processors to directly connect to Bluefin for the P2PE service.
“NeuLion College’s college ticketing and donor management partners are under increasing pressure to limit the liability of credit card processing. By partnering with Bluefin, NeuLion is able to offer our partners peace of mind in knowing that the card information is secured as soon as the transaction is initiated,” said Tim Vargas, SVP of NeuLion College Business Development.
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 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 NeuLion® College Platform is used by some of the largest college ticketing platforms,” said Greg Cornwell, SVP of Security Solutions for Bluefin. “A data breach can be disastrous for a company of any size in any industry – but even more so for those companies in the public spotlight. Our P2PE solution devalues credit card data, rendering it useless to hackers, and we are very pleased that NeuLion College chose to partner with Bluefin and provide their clients access to our P2PE solution through their Platform.”
Benefits of a PCI-validated P2PE solution for merchants and enterprises include reduced PCI compliance and scope, saving time and money on annual audits, and the assurance that the technology has been vetted and approved by the PCI Security Standards Council (SSC).
