Bluefin Joins the American Transaction Processors Coalition (ATPC) to Advance National Payment Security
Wednesday, June 13, 2018

With the new ATPC membership, Bluefin furthers their mission of increasing POS and eCommerce payment security with PCI P2PE and tokenization

ATLANTA, June 13, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Bluefin Payment Systems, the leader in payment security, today announced that they have joined the Georgia-based American Transaction Processors Coalition (ATPC) to further Bluefin's mission of increasing point-of-sale (POS) and eCommerce payment security with PCI-validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE) and tokenization solutions.

The ATPC was founded in 2014 with the mission to protect, promote and preserve the interests of the Fintech and payment processing industries through proactive public relations and government affairs activities. The ATPC focused on Georgia's Congressional Delegation to build broad Congressional support for protecting the payments processing industry, and ensuring Georgia and the U.S. are recognized as the global center of the digital economy, in its first two and a half years. Successfully providing an industry voice and becoming a resource to those stakeholders has allowed the ATPC to expand its reach to other key members of Congress in key committees and positions of influence.

"More than 60 percent of the companies in the payment processing industry call Georgia home and 70 percent of all U.S. payments processed annually run through Georgia," stated H. West Richards, Executive Director of the American Transaction Processors Coalition (ATPC). "Our goal with ATPC is to represent the interests of the more than 70 Georgia-based companies in Transaction Alley."

Atlanta-based Bluefin provides the leading payment security platform that supports payment gateways, processors and ISV's in 24 countries. The company became the first North American provider of a PCI-validated P2PE solution in March 2014 and in October 2014, introduced Decryptx®, the industry's only PCI P2PE Decryption as a Service (DaaS) that enables payment processors, gateways and ISV's to offer Bluefin's solution directly through their platforms.

Today, Bluefin's Decryptx network includes more than 70 global processing and software partners serving over 2M merchants, 28 PCI-validated devices for use with their solutions, and 7 Key Injection Facilities (KIFs).

"Bluefin and our Partners are central to the security of the payment ecosystem. We are leading a global response to the problem of cybercrime by devaluing the data with PCI certified encryption and tokenization solutions, making the data useless in the hands of criminals, organized crime and state funded actors," said Stephen Orfei, Bluefin Advisor.

"Collaboration is a must between the public and private sectors. Our shared objective ought to be a secure and resilient nation," added Orfei.

"The board and I are pleased to welcome Bluefin as our newest Prestige member," stated H. West Richards. "With cybersecurity such a key issue facing our companies every day, it is important that we have an industry leader like Bluefin, with their subject-matter experts, on our team."
