Technology provider NeuLion has partnered with Bluefin Payment Systems to enhance security on its collegiate box office ticketing platform.

The NeuLion College Platform enables organisations to extend their audience reach across a broad range of devices and grow new revenue streams.

Under the agreement, Bluefin will provide the company with a Payment Card Industry (PCI)-validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE) solution directly through its platform, with no change to the transaction flow.

Bluefin’s solution secures credit and debit card transactions by encrypting all data within a point-of-entry device, preventing clear-text cardholder data from being available in the device or the merchant’s system where it could be exposed to malware.

Bluefin enables its encryption on partner platforms with its Decryptx Decryption as a Service (DaaS) product that allows gateways, applications and processors to connect to Bluefin.

“NeuLion’s college ticketing and donor management partners are under increasing pressure to limit the liability of credit card processing. By partnering with Bluefin, NeuLion is able to offer our partners peace of mind in knowing that the card information is secured as soon as the transaction is initiated,” said Tim Vargas, senior vice president of NeuLion College Business Development.

Greg Cornwell, senior vice president of security solutions for Bluefin, said: “The NeuLion College Platform is used by some of the largest college ticketing platforms.

“A data breach can be disastrous for a company of any size in any industry – but even more so for those companies in the public spotlight. Our P2PE solution devalues credit card data, rendering it useless to hackers, and we are very pleased that NeuLion chose to partner with Bluefin and provide their clients access to our P2PE solution through their Platform.”
