Plug’n Pay will provide their clients the security, PCI scope reduction and brand protection of P2PE, backed by Bluefin’s integrated payment processing

Bluefin and Plug’n Pay Technologies Announce Partnership for PCI-Validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE)

April 7, 2020 – Atlanta, GA and Plano, TX – Bluefin, the leading provider of payment security technologies including PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) solutions for retail, hospitality, healthcare, and higher education, has announced a new partnership with Plug’n Pay Technologies, a leading secure internet authorization provider, to provide Plug’n Pay clients PCI-validated P2PE through the company’s WebXpress™ Processing Gateway.

Plug’n Pay offers the industry’s most feature-rich, easy-to-integrate processing gateway, along with a wide array of leading-edge premium products that enable customers to maximize online and point-of-sale profits, reduce fraud risks, and build customer loyalty. With the company’s Payments as a Service model, there are no web server or hosting requirements. Surcharging, Convenience Fees, Billing Presentment, Recurring Billing, and Membership Management are just a few of their product offerings.

“We have been looking for a viable, robust P2PE solution for quite a while. Our merchants have been asking for a way to increase security, reduce PCI scope, and its associated significant cost. Bluefin’s P2PE solution addresses these needs on all points,” said David Price, President, Plug’n Pay Technologies. “Since 1996, when the company was first formed, PnP has always allowed its merchants to help drive product development based on their needs. So it was important for us to be able to answer their demands for a fully integrated P2PE solution.”

“With this new partnership, our merchants can now expect to benefit from increased security, reduced PCI scope and reduced PCI compliance costs, all with no additional development required. That is a Win/Win in my book,” added Price.

The Bluefin/ Plug’n Pay P2PE offering secures credit and debit card transactions by encrypting all data within a PCI-approved point of entry device. This prevents clear-text cardholder data from being available within the device, or in the merchant’s system where exposure to malware is possible. Data decryption always occurs offsite in a Bluefin hardware security module (HSM), ensuring the highest level of security.

“Plug’n Pay Technologies provides a complete suite of processing solutions for companies across the U.S.,” said Greg Cornwell, Chief Revenue Officer, Bluefin. “Not only is the company innovative in their approach to sales and serving their clients, but they are clearly dedicated to providing the gold standard of payment security with PCI-validated P2PE. This security solution will provide numerous cost and efficiency savings to their clients, while protecting payments through every point of acceptance.”
