MGM Resorts deployed FreedomPay’s PCI-validated point-to-point
encryption (P2PE) solution on Ingenico Group’s iSC, iPP and iSMPc smart
terminals with its existing Oracle Hospitality OPERA property management
system. The FreedomPay validated P2PE solution is securing payments at
front desks, concierge services and back-office operations by encrypting

by delivering innovative solutions that meet the evolving needs of our
clients and their customers,” said Christopher Kronenthal, chief
technology officer at FreedomPay. “Through our integration with OPERA,
the FreedomPay Commerce Platform provides MGM Resorts the most flexible
and scalable secure payment solution available in the hospitality
industry. This includes future roadmap items as well, such as
unattended, mobile programs and pre-paid product options.”

Key to the success of the program, was participation from both Oracle,
as well as Ingenico Group. Said Scott Lampman, vice president of gaming
for Oracle, “FreedomPay is a key partner in the ecosystem, and working
with them was critical to the success of the overall update for MGM.”
Ingenico Group’s Scott Tubbs, chief revenue officer, had similar things
to say about the project: “MGM is the latest of many well-known brands
to take the next step to secure their business and customers’ payment
data, and we’re happy that our team, combined with our partners at
FreedomPay, were able to deliver such an industry leading, and
world-class point-of-sale solution to be a part of that protection.”
