Today Bluefin announced the release of their P2PE Manager 2.0. Bluefin’s P2PE Manager is the only 100% online management system for PCI-validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE) device management, chain of custody and annual PCI compliance reporting.
In March 2014, Bluefin became the first company in North America to receive PCI validation for a P2PE solution. Since validation, Bluefin has introduced their PayConex P2PE Enhanced Gateway, providing integrated payment processing supported by P2PE. In addition to PayConex, Bluefin has developed Decryptx, Bluefin’s Decryption as a Service (DaaS) P2PE solution for Tier 1 and Tier 2 retailers that is processor and device “agnostic”, and QuickSwipe Mobile P2PE, Bluefin’s complete P2PE mPOS solution.
Bluefin’s product suite provides enterprises, retailers and software providers with an omni-channel POS solution, enabling PCI-validated P2PE for brick and mortar retail, call center, mobile and kiosk/unattended payments.
“The PCI SSC requires that merchants that adopt and implement a PCI-validated P2PE solution report on device chain of custody. This means that they must know the shipping details, location of devices, and device state, which can be an onerous process for merchants without a formalized tracking system,” stated Ruston Miles, Chief Innovation Officer, Bluefin. “That’s why we created our proprietary P2PE Manager to help merchants administer their P2PE activities and ensure compliance, all through our proprietary, online platform; we actually are providing more for our clients than what the scope requires.”
By logging into Bluefin’s P2PE Manager, merchants can track device shipments, deploy or terminate devices, manage users and administrators, view P2PE transactions and manage multiple locations. Version 2.0 allows users to download and export a variety of reports for PCI compliance. This data is provided to the merchant for their annual audit .
“As a PCI P2PE QSA, we understand the importance of managing chain of custody and devices in order for merchants to get the full benefits of PCI P2PE scope reduction,” said Tim Winston, P2PE/PCI Practice Director, Coalfire Systems. “We applaud Bluefin for taking the additional steps to create and enhance an online management system that simplifies the implementation, monitoring, control and reporting of their PCI-validated P2PE solution.”
Bluefin’s P2PE Manager is a standard offering for all merchants and partners that adopt Bluefin’s P2PE solutions. Bluefin’s P2PE Manager currently has three patents pending. Learn more here.
