Leading payment security solution provider, Bluefin, will now provide the PCI scope reduction and security of PCI-validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE) through Convenient Payments’ GovTeller™ payment solution.
GovTeller, a fee-based, revenue-neutral payment processing solution offered by Convenient Payments, is the premiere method to process Government payments for property taxes, court fees, fines, utilities & other types of miscellaneous Government services, with no processing costs to Governmental agencies. Cardholders can elect to pay using a bankcard for a minimal service fee, either online via a hosted solution, or in-person through a fast and secure credit/debit terminal.
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 payment gateways, processors and ISV’s to connect directly to Bluefin for the P2PE solution.
“According to the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC), there were 99 government/military data breaches in 2018 compromising over 18M records, making it crucial that secure payment solutions are provided to government agencies,” said Casey Leloux, CEO at Convenient Payments. “We chose to provide Bluefin’s PCI-validated P2PE solution to our clients so they can have a safe and secure payment processing environment.”
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.
“We are pleased to provide GovTeller the ability to extend the security, cost benefits and PCI compliance scope reduction of Bluefin’s P2PE solution directly to their government customers,” said Greg Cornwell, Head of Global Sales for Bluefin. “Our PCI-validated P2PE integration with GovTeller will help government agencies protect themselves from data breaches by devaluing credit and debit card data with P2PE.”
The benefits of the Bluefin / GovTeller 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 ID Tech SREDKey.
Bluefin provides the leading payment security platform that supports payment gateways, processors and ISV’s in 30 countries. Bluefin’s secure payment platform is key to the holistic approach to data security. Designed to complement EMV and tokenization, Bluefin’s PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) solutions provide a solid security defense against current and future data breaches.
