It’s March and Spring is in full swing here at Ticket Alternative! There are a few updates that we’re excited to share with you as we head into on-sale and festival season!
Cheers to Minnesota United!
Congratulations go out to our client, Minnesota United FC, who played their first MLS home opener against Atlanta United in some pretty frigid conditions. Our team traveled to Minnesota to support MNU’s box office team and braved the cold to watch the match! We’re excited to share MNU’s inaugural MLS season with them, on the road to their new stadium next year!
We keep your (and your patrons’) data safe.
There has been an increasing amount of attention to PCI compliance for many years now. If you’re not familiar, the term “PCI” refers to the Payment Card Industry, consisting of the major credit card brands. The intent of the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS). is to provide a consistent framework for companies to ensure they are processing card data securely.
PCI compliance requires that sensitive user data, such as card numbers, be rendered unreadable either through encryption, truncation, tokenization, or one-way hashing, essentially any time data elements are stored, processed, or transmitted. There are currently 250 data safety requirements, so the process of ensuring PCI compliance is a long and arduous one.
Minnesota United is our first client to integrate Bluefin’s point-to-point encryption solution or P2PE. P2PE instantly converts confidential card information into an indecipherable code and is designed to maximize the security of payment card transactions. This ensures you and your patrons are safe from hacking and fraud! Patrons can trust that their purchases are secure and you can trust we’re providing your business the strongest encryption protection on the market.
For more information about purchasing Bluefin’s P2PE devices, contact Iain Bluett.
