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 Small Business Workbench an easy-to-use online cash forecasting tool bundled with working capital apps designed specifically for small businesses, have partnered to provide Bluefin’s PayConex and QuickSwipe PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) solutions to Small Business Workbench 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. In December 2014, Bluefin’s Mobile P2PE Solution became the first North American mobile solution to receive PCI validation. QuickSwipe provides a mobile P2PE solution using an iOS phone or tablet.
Through the partnership, SBWorkbench’s 30,000 clients can get PayConex and QuickSwipe integrated solutions through their SBWorkbench software.
“We are excited to partner with Small Business Workbench and empower their merchants with our PCI validated PayConex P2PE solution and the first, and to date only, mobile P2PE solution in the U.S.,” said Julie Counterman, Chief of Integrated Payments, Bluefin. “In this age of security breaches, secure payments are absolutely mandatory. Our PCI-validated P2PE solutions safeguards cardholder data, decreases risk, reduce PCI compliance cope, and protect the corporate brand.”
A product of Small Business Payments Company, the Small Business Workbench helps small businesses with such critical activities as getting paid faster and better managing inventories, all while providing a clear line of site to their expected future cash positions so they can make sound business and financial decisions.
“We are continually looking to offer our small business customers the very best services and offerings to allow them to focus on their business and succeed,” said Dave Kurrasch, Vice President and General Manager of Small Business Payments Company. “Bluefin’s P2PE payment solutions will provide an exciting added value to our clients, offering the highest standard of integrated payment transaction security for transactions.”
