Montreal, QC (PRWEB) April 14, 2016
Retail and mobile payments innovator AnywhereCommerce and Bluefin Payment Systems, the leading provider of PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) solutions, have announced the availability of Bluefin’s P2PE solution for AnywhereCommerce clients utilizing the Nomad 2, the industry’s first PCI-validated P2PE mobile device with EMV.
PCI-validated P2PE mitigates the time and costs associated with PCI compliance and especially benefits large enterprises where security is essential in protecting card data as well as a brand’s reputation.
AnywhereCommerce can now offer all of the security of Bluefin’s PCI-validated P2PE solution suite through its current platform utilizing the Nomad mobile device paired with a smartphone or tablet. The compact EMV-certified and SRED-enabled card reader supports transactions initiated via magnetic stripe, chip and signature and chip and PIN. Integration to the P2PE platform is accomplished using CorePay Secure, AnywhereCommerce’s robust software development kit.
“We are proud to partner with a leading security organization such as Bluefin to extend the benefits of P2PE to mobile environments,” said William Nichols, CEO, AnywhereCommerce. “Using our CorePay Secure, Developers and ISVs can quickly and easily enhance the security of their mPOS solutions, reduce the complexities of PCI compliance, and extend peace of mind to merchants.”
Benefits of a PCI-validated P2PE solution for merchants 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). Plus, PCI-validated P2PE ensures chain of custody of devices, which adds strict controls to the distribution channel, from factory to key injection and customer installation.
“Data breaches are top of mind for retailers, software providers and payment gateways,” said Greg Cornwell, Senior Vice President, Security Solutions at Bluefin. “Companies such as AnywhereCommerce understand that the key to protecting payment data so that it is never accessible to fraudsters is through technologies such as PCI-validated P2PE. We are very pleased to partner with Anywhere Commerce and to bring the security of our validated solution to their clients.”
