CDE is now Bluefin’s newest P2PE Key Injection Facility (KIF)
January 18, 2016 – Atlanta, GA – CDE is a total POS solutions company that began in a garage over 25 years ago. Since 1989, the business has grown and expanded exponentially. Now a leader in the POS solutions sector of the payments industry, CDE is proud to announce their new partnership with Bluefin Payment Systems. CDE will join Bluefin’s list of P2PE Key Injection Facilities (KIFs) for the company’s PCI-validated P2PE devices and provide deployment services to Bluefin clients and partners.
Bluefin became the first North-American based company to receive PCI validation for a P2PE solution in March 2014 and today offers P2PE products for retail, mobile, kiosk/unattended, and call center environments.
P2PE solutions validated by the PCI Security Standards Council are vetted by a third party and adhere to rigorous key injection, chain of custody, device management, and hardware decryption standards.
“PCI-validated P2PE is predicated on injection of the P2PE keys done only in certified facilities and decryption done only in off-site hardware security modules (HSMs),” said Ruston Miles, Chief Innovation Officer, Bluefin. “Having an industry-leading partner like CDE Services is integral to our business of providing P2PE devices in a timely and effective manner. We are excited to begin working with CDE Services on P2PE.”
CDE specializes in POS inventory procurement and asset management, deployment and retrieval, encryption, and repair. The company serves a wide range of ISO’s, processors, and merchants; and is continuously improving their operations and service. CDE also continues to extend their service and product offerings. With devices from Ingenico, Verifone, Magtek, and ID Tech, CDE works with partners in a number of different industries.
“We are very pleased to partner with Bluefin and provide services including encryption to their growing list of P2PE clients,” said Randy Siebold, VP of Business Development, CDE Services. “We see enormous value in the management and distribution of PCI-validated P2PE devices for Bluefin, as they are still one of only four providers of PCI-validated P2PE in North America and we are thrilled they have selected us to help facilitate their significant growth.”
