ANX Partners with Bluefin to add Validated Point-to-Point Encryption to its Industry-Leading PCI Compliance Solution
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. - ANXeBusiness Corp. (ANX), a trusted provider of managed payment solutions, has formed a strategic partnership with Bluefin Payment Systems, the leading provider of secure payment technology worldwide. The partnership establishes ANX as the first PCI Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) to offer merchants a PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) solution that also delivers a comprehensive suite of layered security and tools to simplify PCI compliance.
ANX's solution, SecurePCI Validated P2PE, combines the benefits of encryption with all the other services that a merchant needs to be secure and compliant. SecurePCI Validated P2PE is fully managed and delivers: validated P2PE; POS terminals required to meet the October 2015 EMV mandate; $100,000 of retroactive data breach protection; portal tools to simplify PCI compliance; and enterprise-grade managed security technology for layered security.
"We are excited about partnering with ANX," said Jeffrey Schroeder, Bluefin's Chief of Marketing Strategy. "They have added our Validated P2PE capabilities to their industry-leading SecurePCI package. ANX is known for their operational excellence and ability to help merchants become PCI compliant."
"Bluefin is the worldwide market leader for Validated P2PE," added Mark Wayne, ANX Executive Vice President, Governance, Risk and Compliance. "The Bluefin partnership is great news for ANX stakeholders. Adding validated P2PE to the portfolio positions ANX to deliver the best-in-class layered security and compliance solution while minimizing the merchant effort to achieve and maintain PCI compliance."
The storage and movement of unencrypted credit card data make US merchants a primary target for organized cybercrime. This vulnerability is exploited with documented success resulting in millions of dollars in damages. P2PE represents a major step forward in the battle to secure credit card information. With P2PE, payment card information is encrypted at the merchant Point-of-Sale (POS) and remains encrypted as it is exchanged with the acquiring bank. Encryption actually devalues the data, which lessens the incentive for theft. Hence, validated P2PE reduces the risk of a data breach, positions merchants to meet the October EMV requirements, and makes it easier to become PCI compliant by reducing the scope.
ANX will be accepting orders for SecurePCI Validated P2PE at the Transact 15 event in San Francisco on March 31, 2015. Learn more at www.anx.com.
