BlueSnap Updates Payment Encryption Technology for iOS 8

BlueSnap upgrades Client Side Encryption API to ensure secure transactions for shoppers who upgrade to Apple’s forthcoming mobile operating system

WALTHAM, MA – September 10, 2014 – Global payment gateway BlueSnap announced today that its Client Side Encryption API has been upgraded to support shoppers using iOS 8. This will ensure that shoppers who update their iPhones and iPads will benefit from the same encryption strategy that allows BlueSnap to protect payment card information on all web devices.

Historically, Apple sees swift adoption rates for new devices and operating systems. Indeed, 74% of Apple’s mobile device users upgraded to iOS 7 within 3 months of release. Anticipating a similar adoption rate for iOS 8, BlueSnap upgraded its core security technology to ensure that all Apple users will be protected.

”With iOS 8 due for release, we moved ahead of the curve to ensure that BlueSnap will offer the high level of performance and security that we offer on all devices and operating systems,” said Ralph Dangelmaier, CEO of BlueSnap. “We can now assure our merchants that BlueSnap will be ready for their customers who upgrade to the new iOS.”

The Client Side Encryption API encrypts sensitive payment fields on the checkout page on the shopper’s device before the information is sent to the merchant’s server. The encrypted information is then sent to BlueSnap’s servers, decrypted and processed.

BlueSnap now offers three integrations options; full APIs/web services, API with client side encryption and hosted checkout pages, giving merchants the flexibility to sell in 180 countries, display checkout pages in 29 languages and 60 currencies using 110 different payment options. On all devices, BlueSnap automatically localizes the checkout experience based on the shopper’s geographical location and intelligently re-routes failed transactions to help increase transaction success rates.
