Bluefin Case Study

University of California (UCLA) – Optimizing Payment Acceptance Across Campus

Bluefin’s Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) and tokenization solutions help UCLA secure all sensitive payment data across campus.

The university system of UCLA comprises 26 departments, with over 7,000 faculty members, 30,000 undergraduate and 14,000 postgraduate students. UCLA Health is a health system which consists of three hospitals and an extensive primary care network that includes 260 clinics across California.

“Making sure that sensitive data — whether financial or personal — is secure has always been important. With Bluefin’s P2PE and tokenization, we can use the encryption process to secure payment data and other data, such as social security numbers, student IDs, or DOB. Whether it is our health system or student accounts – all sensitive data is protected.” – Allen Shui, Manager, Treasury Operations & Payment Compliance, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)
