Springbrook Using Bluefin Encryption
Springbrook Software, a provider of cloud ERP solutions for local government, is extending the security of its software suite with Bluefin Payment Systems' PayConex point-to-point encryption solution.
Bluefin recently received Payment Card Industry Council validation for PayConex, which encrypts credit and debit card data in a secure point-of-entry device before it is transmitted into a merchant's point-of-sale, virtual terminal or payment application. Encrypting cardholder data within the device ensures that clear-text cardholder data does not reach the merchant's POS systems and networks where it could be exposed to malware.
Payments made through Springbrook's software will be powered by Bluefin's PayConex payment platform, which includes additional security features, such as tokenization and transparent redirect.
