Bluefin, NCR Expand POS Payment Security to Provide PCI-Validated P2PE
Payment security solution provider, Bluefin, and NCR, a provider of omni-channel solutions, are working together to improve NCR’s clients’ experience by providing Bluefin’s PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) security solution to restaurants and retailers utilizing NCR’s Counterpoint Retail Solution to process payments through NCR Secure Pay. This joint offering will enable NCR’s clients to offer a higher level of security and peace-of-mind to their customers.
NCR Secure Pay is a payment gateway service that processes credit, debit, and gift cards over the Internet through a variety of supported processors. Secure Pay integrates directly into NCR Counterpoint, a Retail Management Solution built for SMB retailers, providing a flexible system with robust inventory management, touchscreen point-of-sale, built-in customer loyalty, automated purchasing, and configurable reporting capabilities, among others.
Bluefin enables PCI-validated P2PE on processing platforms and point-of-sale (POS) systems using their Decryptx Decryption as a Service (DaaS) product, which allows gateways, applications and processors to connect directly to Bluefin for P2PE service.
Bluefin’s PCI-validated P2PE solutions devalue credit card and debit data with immediate encryption upon swipe or dip in the PCI-approved point of entry device, preventing clear-text cardholder data from being accessible in the event of a data breach. Data decryption always occurs offsite in a Bluefin hardware security module.
The benefits of the Bluefin / NCR P2PE solution include reduction in PCI scope, qualification for the 33 question SAQ P2PE, the P2PE Manager® online device management system, and integration with the Ingenico iSC250.
