Bluefin and AMP Announce Strategic Partnership for PCI-validated P2PE EMV Smart Terminals

By October 29, 2019May 12th, 2020No Comments
The AMP 8000, AMP 8200 and AMP 6500 will leverage Bluefin’s PCI-validated P2PE Decryptx® platform.

The solution caters to North American and Latin American customers, combining all the user-centric and enhanced features of AMP’s smart terminals with the added security of a P2PE framework. This validation is a key step in AMP’s commitment to better serve cutting-edge payment options to security-focused sectors such as banking, government, and specialty retail & restaurants.

Bluefin provides the leading payment security platform that supports payment gateways, processors and ISVs globally. Bluefin was the first company in North America to receive PCI validation for a P2PE solution in March 2014. In October of 2014, Bluefin introduced its Decryption as a Service offering, Decryptx®, which enables payment gateways, processors and ISVs to provide Bluefin’s P2PE solution through their platforms and direct to their clients. The company has over 110 connected P2PE partners serving clients in 30 countries, with more than 80 PCI-validated P2PE devices to choose from.

“We are very excited to partner with AMP, who brings to the market Android-based devices with encryption enforced within firmware,” said Brent Johnson, VP, InfoSec and Compliance. “We believe this will be a great option for PCI P2PE solution providers and merchants desiring smart terminals without the additional overhead of validating P2PE payment applications.”

“At AMP, we are very excited to launch our first P2PE validated solution with Bluefin, as they are an industry-leading partner with an exceptional reputation. Through this strategic partnership, we will be able to offer our innovative products to new verticals and regions. This collaborative effort between AMP and Bluefin will pave the way to creating solutions that deliver the newest technology and security in a single product,” stated Robert Downton, AMP’s VP of Sales, North America.
