You Can Devalue the Data – or Defend the Data
In 2015, Bluefin Payment Systems partnered with ChiroTouch to provide integrated payment processing within ChiroTouch’s software. But Bluefin is more than just a payment processor – our company is a pioneer in the protection of credit and debit card data. We ask our clients the following question – do you want to defend your data or devalue your data?
The Defend the Data approach requires companies to build stronger security around their systems and data. The general idea is to prevent the data from being taken in the first place with firewalls, 24/7 monitoring, intrusion detection and constant patch detection. This approach is a costly and time consuming method for protecting sensitive data.
With the Devalue the Data approach, companies use technology that devalues their data before it reaches a point where it can be compromised rendering any breached and stolen data valueless in the hands of the cyber crooks. The Devalue the Data approach allows information security budgets to stretch farther while providing a complete data security solution.
Through our partnership with ChiroTouch, we provide our Payment Card Industry (PCI)-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) solution.
Bluefin’s PCI-validated P2PE solution devalues the data by encrypting cardholder information at the Point of Interaction (POI) in a PCI-approved P2PE device and decryption is done off-site in an approved Bluefin Hardware Security Module (HSM). Our solution prevents clear-text cardholder data that is processed through the terminal from being present in a healthcare office’s system or network where it could be accessible in the event of a data breach.
Chirotouch and Bluefin strongly believe in providing clients an easy, seamless solution to protect patient data with P2PE.
