December 1, 2021 – Atlanta, GA and San Jose, CA – Bluefin, the leading provider of integrated payment security products including PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) and tokenization solutions for healthcare, higher education, government and non-profits, has announced a new partnership with VBO Tickets that will provide their users integrated payment processing capabilities backed by PCI-validated P2PE.
VBO Tickets is a global provider of a Total Ticketing Engagement Solution, with all-in-one ticketing and event management features. The company helps organizations boost tickets sales with integrated customer relationship management, ticketing, fundraising, merchandise sales, virtual engagement, and marketing solutions.
Bluefin specializes in PCI-validated P2PE solutions that secure 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). Organizations can learn more about Bluefin’s P2PE benefits on our FAQ page.
