Bluefin Secures Agreement with Everi to Bring Added Cash Access Security to Casino Gaming Floor
Everi is the first gaming provider to integrate to Bluefin’s patented P2PE as-a-service technology
ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bluefin, the recognized integrated payments leader in PCI-validated encryption and tokenization technologies that protect payments and sensitive data, today announced that Everi Payments Inc., the wholly owned subsidiary and FinTech business of Everi Holdings Inc., entered into an agreement with Bluefin to bring a new level of payment security to their casino gaming customer base.
Bluefin is Everi’s PCI P2PE solution provider and has listed its own tailored solution for Everi. Through its agreement with Bluefin, Everi utilizes Decryptx® which enables processors, payment gateways and software platforms to offer PCI-validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE) solutions directly to their clients. According to Coalfire, P2PE can reduce a merchant’s PCI DSS compliance burden by more than 70% and PCI control scope reduction at the point-of-sale environment by more than 90%.
“Everi is committed to innovation for payments choice, convenience, and value, along with expanding security for the benefit of our customers and their patrons,” said Victor Newsom, SVP Product Management, Payments Solutions at Everi. “Bringing P2PE across the gaming floor without sacrificing the omni-channel capabilities our solutions provide is just the latest innovation in our ongoing mission to lead the industry.”
As a premier provider of land-based and cashless FinTech products and services, Everi develops solutions that incorporate customer-centric features across loyalty, payments, and casino operations. By deploying Decryptx, Everi’s customers will have the highest level of card-present security, simple chain of custody device management, and a seamless P2PE solution that does not require a change to their payment processing relationships.
“The Everi team understands how important security is to their customers and casino gaming at large,” said Andrea Eaton, Bluefin’s Chief Revenue Officer. “We are thrilled to be delivering added security and scope reduction benefits of PCI-validated point-to-point encryption.”
Bluefin recently announced it has teamed up with Visa for network tokenization which will work hand in hand with the solution Everi has selected.
