Bluefin, NCR expand POS payment security
Bluefin and NCR are working together to improve NCR's clients' experience by providing Bluefin's PCI-validated point-to-point encryption security product to merchants and retailers using NCR's Counterpoint Retail product to process payments through NCR Secure Pay.
The companies said in a press release the joint offering will enable NCR's clients to offer a higher level of security and peace of mind to their customers.
NCR Secure Pay is a payment gateway service that processes credit, debit, and gift cards over the internet through a variety of supported processors, according to the release. Secure Pay integrates directly into NCR Counterpoint, a retail management product built for SMB retailers, providing a flexible system with robust inventory management, touchscreen point-of-sale, built-in customer loyalty, automated purchasing, and configurable reporting capabilities, among others.
Bluefin enables PCI-validated P2PE on processing platforms and point-of-sale (POS) systems using their Decryptx decryption-as-a-Service product, which allows gateways, applications, and processors to connect directly to Bluefin for P2PE service.
"Combining NCR Secure Pay with Bluefin's Decryptx service allows us to offer industry leading payment security controls to our clients at a competitive price point," Mike Ritchie, senior product manager at NCR, said in the release. "NCR Counterpoint users can now provide added payment security for their customers while retaining their ability to use the payment processor they choose."
