Security continues to be a hot topic these days, especially mobile point of sale security. Industry data shows that the installed base of global mPOS devices is forecasted to reach the 51 million mark by 2019, which is five times more than what it was said to be in 2014. However, merchants and issuers still view mobile solutions as much riskier than standard e-commerce offerings.
With this in mind, Bluefin has just announced the issue of a white paper exploring the essentials of today’s mPOS security, including PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) for mobile payments. The paper delves into additional factors of today’s essential mPOS, including the need for seamless, scalable systems that also provide additional revenue-generating opportunities.
Last December, Bluefin’s Mobile P2PE Solution became the first North American mobile solution to receive PCI validation. The solution interfaces with the company’s QuickSwipe mPOS system, utilizing Infinite Peripherals’ PCI P2PE approved Prima M mobile swipe device. Companies can choose to use the QuickSwipe Mobile P2PE Solution with an iOS phone or tablet, or they can choose the complete QuickSwipe mPOS solution, including the tablet stand, cash register and Bluetooth printer.
