Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE)
WHAT IS POINT-TO-POINT ENCRYPTION?
Point-to-point encryption (P2PE) is an advanced security tool that helps protect the sensitive information contained within a credit card. When a business is PCI-compliant with P2PE, credit card data is encrypted from:
- The moment the card is swiped or dipped
- While the payment data is in transit
- All the way to authorization and approval
BluePay offers P2PE as part of its wide range of PCI-compliant payment solutions within the guidelines created by the PCI Security Standards Council.
HOW OUR P2PE SOLUTION PROTECTS YOUR BUSINESS
As long as your business accepts payments, there will always be a risk of data theft. Compromised data can lead to devastating losses for customers and businesses, as well as hefty fines for merchants. With the right security systems in place, such as our PCI P2PE solutions, you can make sure your customers' information remains safe from fraud while protecting your own business from the consequences of electronic theft.
P2PE can also help you increase customer confidence in your payment environment — allowing you to build a reputation as a secure, compliant merchant.
Additional benefits of our PCI P2PE solution:
- Increase payment security from the point of entry through to authorization
- Improve customer confidence and build a reputable business
- Reduce PCI scope and significantly save on costly annual audits
P2PE AND ADVANCED DATA SECURITY
BluePay’s P2PE solution takes credit card security to the next level. Point-to-point encryption keeps payment information safe during the transaction process by encrypting cardholder data from the point of card swipe to authorization. P2PE encryption also protects sensitive data while the information is in transit. As a result, customers and merchants enjoy safer transactions, while thieves fail to gain access to actual credit card numbers.
REDUCE PCI SCOPE WITH OUR P2PE SOLUTION
Complying with PCI standards isn't just recommended for merchants who accept credit cards — it’s required. The card brands developed data security standards to help protect their businesses and customers from payment fraud and identity theft. If data is compromised due to PCI violations, consequences can include hefty fines, loss of credibility, loss of customers and, ultimately, loss of business.
At BluePay, our credit card processing solutions comply with the latest PCI standards, reducing the risk of fraud and keeping your business safe. With our P2PE solution, you enjoy peace of mind knowing that your payment environment is PCI compliant and secure.
