Retail inMotion joins forces with Bluefin to provide PCI-validated Point-to-Point encryption (P2PE)

Retail inMotion is proud to announce that it has partnered with Bluefin, the leading provider of payment security technologies and PCI-validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE) solutions for retail, hospitality, healthcare, and higher education, which will enable users of Retail inMotion onboard retail management platform to benefit from Bluefin’s PCI-validated P2PE solution.

Bluefin’s PCI-validated P2PE technology 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.

The join solution will help reduce PCI scope from 329 to 33 questions on the P2PE self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ), thus offering significant cost and efficiency savings; online management of the P2PE device process with Bluefin’s P2PE Manager®; and seamless integration with Retail inMotion’s platforms. 

“Retail inMotion is a best in class provider to some of the largest airlines in the world, who will benefit from the security, PCI scope reduction and brand protection of PCI-validated P2PE,” said Greg Cornwell, head of global sales for Bluefin. “As we have seen from breaches this year, the travel and hospitality industries are a major target for hackers, and we are very pleased to partner with Retail inMotion to secure payments for their travel industry clients.”

 “This is a great partnership for Retail inMotion and Bluefin,” said Jan Blanchard, Chief Commercial Officer, Retail inMotion. “We are excited to lead the airline industry in providing this important security solution to our clients.”

Bluefin enables PCI-validated P2PE on partner platforms using their Decryptx® Decryption as a Service (DaaS) product. More than 125 connected partners including gateways, ISV’s, and processors interact directly with Bluefin for the P2PE service.
