ATLANTA & CHANTILLY, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bluefin Payment Systems, the leading provider of card present secure payment technology for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), enterprises, financial institutions, and small to medium-sized businesses, and 3Delta Systems (3DSI), innovator of business-to-business (B2B) Level-3 Internet-based secure card payment processing and tokenization services, have partnered to provide Bluefin’s DecryptxTM PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) Solution to 3DSI clients.
In March 2014, Bluefin became the first company in North America to receive PCI validation for a P2PE Solution, PayConex P2PE. PayConex P2PE secures card transactions by encrypting all data within a PCI-approved point of entry swipe or keypad device, preventing clear-text cardholder data from being available in the device or the merchant’s system where it could be exposed to malware.
On November 3rd, Bluefin introduced Decryptx, the company’s Decryption as a Service (DaaS) product. Decryptx provides all of the security of PayConex P2PE but with no change to the merchant’s processing or acquiring relationship.
“We are excited to partner with 3Delta Systems and empower their merchants with the highest standard of payment transaction security for card present transactions, PCI-validated point-to-point encryption powered by our PayConex platform,” said Julie Counterman, Chief of Integrated Payments, Bluefin. “Security is in our DNA at Bluefin as witnessed by being the first PCI-validated P2PE provider in North America, but also the only company to offer a decryption as a service model, Decryptx, to meet the unique business needs of companies like 3Delta and their merchants.”
3DSI is a Software as a Service (SaaS) payment gateway offering multiple ways to process and manage card payments, specializing in processing Level-3 payment data for B2B and B2G customers. 3DSI also provides the CardVault tokenization service which has been protecting customer data since 2003 for B2C, B2B, and B2G customers.
“As a payment processor, we understand the importance of keeping our clients’ data safe. Recent data breaches have highlighted the vulnerability of point of sale systems and how simple it is for fraudsters to find – and steal – card data,” said Allen O. Cage, Jr., CEO, 3Delta Systems. “PCI-validated P2PE will prevent clear-text cardholder data from reaching the point of sale system, where it could be accessed in the event of a breach. With Decryptx, we can provide the additional security and value of PayConex P2PE to our clients with no changes to their current acquiring agreement.”
In addition to preventing the loss of cardholder data in the event of a breach, Bluefin’s PayConex P2PE also helps companies reduce their PCI compliance scope; the PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption Solution reduces a 288 step assessment to just 18 questions.
