Agile Ticketing Solutions Will Provide the Security and Cost Efficiency of PCI P2PE Directly to their Client Venues
Atlanta, GA and Hermitage, TN, November 27, 2018 — Bluefin, the leading provider of payment security solutions, and venue management software provider Agile Ticketing Solutions today announced their partnership to provide Bluefin’s PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) solution to Agile Ticketing Solutions clients through their venue management software platform.
Agile Ticketing Solutions’ software combines best-in-class event planning, donor, membership and marketing technologies for theatres, art houses, performing art centers, museums, film festivals and more. The company serves over 400 venues throughout North America.
The Bluefin/Agile Ticketing Solutions P2PE offering secures credit and debit card transactions by encrypting all data within the PAX S300 PCI-approved point of entry device. This prevents clear-text cardholder data from being available within the device, or in the merchant’s system where exposure to malware is possible. Data decryption always occurs offsite in a Bluefin hardware security module (HSM), ensuring the highest level of security.
“PCI-validated P2PE is a crucial payment security technology for any business or organization that processes card present credit card and debit card transactions,” said Greg Cornwell, Head of Global Sales, Bluefin. “We are excited to bring the security, reduced PCI scope and brand protections of PCI P2PE to Agile Ticketing Solutions’ clients.”
Bluefin enables PCI-validated P2PE on partner platforms using their Decryptx® Decryption as a Service (DaaS) product, which allows gateways, ISV’s, and processors to connect directly to Bluefin for the P2PE service.
“Security has always been a top priority for our ticketing software,” said Richard Steward, CEO, Agile Ticketing Solutions. “We are thrilled to partner with Bluefin to further guarantee that our clients and their customers are provided with a safe, secure and reliable purchasing experience.”
Benefits of the Bluefin / Agile Ticketing Solutions’ P2PE solution include reducing PCI scope from 329 to a 33-question P2PE self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ), online management of the P2PE device process with Bluefin’s P2PE Manager®, and seamless integration with Agile Ticketing Solutions’ venue management software platform.
Bluefin provides the leading payment security platform that supports payment gateways, processors and ISV’s in 28 countries. Bluefin’s secure payment platform is key to the holistic approach to data security. Designed to complement EMV and tokenization, Bluefin’s PCI-validated Point-to-Point (P2PE) solutions provide a solid security defense against current and future data breaches.
