Powertranz Launches New Platform to Support EMV and PCI Validated P2PE Point of Sale Card Processing

Powertranz removes complexity in face-to-face card payment acceptance across the Caribbean

With the deployment of Powertranz we have solved an important issue in the Caribbean. We have removed the dual entry requirement, significantly improving a merchant’s ability to reconcile transactions”

— Chris Burns

HAMILTON, BERMUDA, January 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Powertranz Ltd., a newly incorporated card payment solutions provider, in partnership with First Atlantic Commerce (FAC), a global online payment gateway, today announced the launch of Card Present payment platform, Powertranz.

Powertranz is a modern, robust payment gateway that provides Integrated Point of Sale (POS)/Card present transaction processing, including EMV and PCI Validated Point to Point Encryption (P2PE), for merchants across the Caribbean.

The first and only truly integrated Card Present payment solution incorporating PCI Validated P2PE in the Caribbean, Powertranz provides POS software vendors with a lightweight integration point to enable integrated payment solutions for merchants.

Powertranz currently supports Chip and Pin, Chip and Signature, and Magnetic Stripe read capabilities across 17 Caribbean countries.

The fully equipped payment platform features PCI Validated P2PE, the PCI Council’s standard for End to End encryption, via Powertranz’s partnership with Bluefin Payment Systems. PCI validated P2PE encrypts card data at the point of contact with the payment terminal, removing all clear text credit card data from the merchants’ systems.

This largely reduces PCI Scope and protects merchants from credit card data breaches, which continue to trend upward on a global scale.

Key Features

• Full integration between POS software and payment terminal
• Elimination of price and credit card data manual entries
• Elimination of costly dual entry mistakes
• Cleansed transactional data sent back to POS software in real time
• Protection from costly data breaches
• Sensitive card data encrypted at all times
• Improved ability to reconcile transactions
• No requirement for POS software vendor to do costly EMV certifications to processors
• PCI Validated P2PE protection on each transaction
• PCI authorized scope reduction

According to Powertranz CEO, Chris Burns, until now, the Caribbean market lacked a truly integrated EMV solution. POS software and payment terminals did not have access to the required integration points.

“With the deployment of Powertranz we have solved an important issue that existed in the Caribbean for many years. We have removed the dual entry requirement, which significantly improves a merchant’s ability to reconcile transactions,” he said. “And thanks to Bluefin, we can provide PCI Validated P2PE solutions within POS environments which not only greatly reduces the merchant’s PCI Scope, but also gives them industry leading protection from costly data breaches. This is a major step forward for the Caribbean payments industry.”

Ronnie Viera, COO of Powertranz added: “We are extremely pleased that, after 3 years of design, development and testing, Powertranz is now available to the market. The new gateway was built with a fully redundant systems architecture using the latest in technology. As well, we have released a state-of-the-art merchant portal web application to provide merchants with deep insight into their transaction processing activity.”

Powertranz is available now to Point of Sale merchants across the Caribbean. For more information, please visit www.powertranz.bm

Bolton NHS Foundation Trust goes live with eObservations using Tap & Go technology from Imprivata implemented in 8 weeks

New solution enables clinicians to record patient vital signs quickly and securely via shared mobile devices, improving quality of care and patient safety

Imprivata Mobile Device Access supports the mobility of clinical staff, bringing technology to the bedside by improving the secure use of shared clinical mobile devices for patient care.”

— Dr. Sean Kelly, Chief Medical Officer, Imprivata

LONDON, UK, January 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Imprivata®, the healthcare IT security company, announced that Bolton NHS Foundation Trust has extended its deployment of Imprivata OneSign® with the addition of Imprivata Mobile Device Access™. The new solution gives clinicians fast, secure, and auditable access to eObservations, a system that records patient vital signs, via shared mobile devices with just the tap of a proximity badge. Imprivata Mobile Device Access enables care providers to record and store patient observations securely at the point of care. Armed with accurate and up to date information clinicians can improve outcomes by ensuring that patients receive the right level of attendance based on their current status and clinical progression. By analysing patient observations, care givers can identify any signs of deterioration and make appropriate clinical judgements, significantly improving patient outcomes.

Phillipa Winter, Chief Informatics Officer, Bolton NHS Foundation Trust comments; “The primary objective of the eObservations project is to improve patient safety and quality of care, ensuring patients receive the best care to improve outcomes. Imprivata Mobile Device Access is an important factor in achieving this goal. When time is of the essence, every second counts; clinicians now have fast and secure access to the most up to date patient information to inform clinical decisions and patient care.”

Bolton NHS FT already uses Imprivata Authentication Management, Single Sign-On and Virtual Desktop Access for strong authentication and streamlined access to virtualised resources in the Trust’s virtual desktop environment. The solution provides clinicians with fast and easy access to their applications and desktops on iGel thin-client terminals by tapping their identity badges onto terminals equipped with Imprivata OneSign proximity card readers. Bolton NHS FT were keen to build on this foundation and accelerate their digitisation journey.

In line with the paperless vision outlined in the NHS Five Year Forward View, the Trust was ready to launch the eObservations solution on mobile devices. A sample trial was conducted on a ward with several devices shared between a number of clinical staff members. To access the solution users were required to manually enter their login credentials into three separate applications using the onscreen keyboard in order to record a patient’s vital signs. The lengthy login times were proving unpopular in user trials and the IT team at Bolton NHS FT were keen to find a way of simplifying system access without weakening security processes or breaching audit requirements.

Imprivata Mobile Device Access provided the answer, the solution extends the capabilities of Imprivata OneSign and the Imprivata identity and access management platform enabling fast, secure access to shared mobile devices and applications with the tap of a proximity badge. Following successful testing and user trials, the solution was installed on 500 mobile devices which were deployed over 8 weeks as part of the eObservations project. As a result, Bolton NHS FT has been able to unlock the full potential of its devices, ensuring fast and efficient access to the eObservations system whilst maintaining security and auditability.

Brett Walmsley, Chief Technology Officer at Bolton NHS FT, explains; “The speed and responsiveness of the Imprivata team in understanding our requirements and the outcome we wanted to achieve was outstanding. They dovetailed into our existing deployment and training plans ensuring minimum disruption and no down time for staff, and worked tirelessly alongside our team to an aggressive timeline. Imprivata has been the critical component to the success of our mobile device project. We are excited about the future and about what we can achieve together. Imprivata is now our go-to provider for anything to do with authentication. We view them as very much a part of our innovative development team.”

The project has been a great success, more than 1,000 members of staff have access to the mobile devices which are located in banks of between seven and ten devices on wards across the Trust. The ease of accessing applications has reduced barriers to using the devices, because staff can quickly log in and out of the tablets with just a tap of their badge. All staff use their own proximity cards to access the device which ensures they are logged in using their own credentials, resulting in accurate audit trails on patient care. Observations are conducted regularly on patients according to their care plan and entered directly via the mobile device, removing the need for maintaining paper records. The solution has been a key element in helping improve staff confidence, and removing barriers to using technology and delivering tangible benefits to clinicians and their patients.

Dr Simon Irving, Chief Clinical Information Officer at Bolton NHS FT, comments; “The Imprivata solution has minimised the administration burden on healthcare professionals and delivered tangible benefits in the care of patients. The positive impact has driven us to review what other applications we can make accessible via mobile devices to staff on the move. We now have the potential to deliver more applications into the hands of clinicians and utilise technology to make a measurable difference in patient care without compromising information security.”

The Imprivata solution has provided the Trust with a safe way of authenticating users, giving assurance to the safety of patient records and demonstrating compliance with audit processes, governance, and the General Data Protection Regulation.

Dr. Sean Kelly, Chief Medical Officer at Imprivata, comments; “Imprivata Mobile Device Access supports the mobility of clinical staff, bringing technology to the bedside by improving the use of shared clinical mobile devices. This project has been a great example of customer and vendor working in harmony to bring required new clinical workflows into practice, not only benefiting Bolton NHS Foundation Trust but the NHS as a whole. The dramatic results achieved and quick deployment has made a vital difference to the delivery of healthcare and enabled the Trust to take a significant leap forward towards their vision of becoming paperless by 2020.”

Delvinia Announces Investment in Blockchain-Powered Data Platform Measure Protocol

Putting Control of Data Back in Consumer Hands

Pioneering technologies like Measure Protocol significantly deepen the levels of trust that are — and will be needed — to power data into the next century. ”

— Adam Froman, founder and CEO of Delvinia

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, January 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Data collection firm Delvinia today announced a significant investment in Measure Protocol, a blockchain-powered marketplace that gives users control of their own data.

Measure Protocol uses blockchain technology to address growing concerns around fraud, privacy, transparency and consumer participation rates. Research respondents who use Measure Protocol's mobile app get paid to complete surveys and connect personal data sources such as location, health and purchase history from their online store accounts. Those who buy the data—including researchers and marketers—can target specific groups of consumers based on their extensive profile and behavioural attributes, all protected using advanced cryptographic techniques.

For Adam Froman, founder and CEO of Delvinia, this investment is all about building the future of how data is collected and exchanged, ultimately giving consumers control of their data. "We're in a major period of transformation for the data collection industry where all players will need to adopt new practices to improve data quality," Froman explained. "Pioneering technologies like Measure Protocol significantly deepen the levels of trust that are — and will be needed —to power data into the next century. And it puts Delvinia ahead of the curve. As significant investors, we’ll be one of the first data collection companies in the world to use the protocol once it’s fully developed."

With this investment, Measure Protocol plans to extend its core development work into advanced cryptography for protecting consumer data and profiling, while also using the investment to launch its consumer facing application business in the second quarter of 2019.

"Delvinia is the perfect investor to help accelerate our vision of advancing how research is conducted, using blockchain to ultimately improve data quality," said Owen Hanks, CEO and co-founder of Measure Protocol. "We wanted collaborators who share in our vision of putting the control back in the consumer’s hand and value the user experience. With Delvinia, we now have a partner on our scale of making bold moves to better the industry."

As part of the relationship, Delvinia will provide Measure Protocol with strategic advice and identify immediate opportunities to improve the research experience.
