PHILADELPHIA, PA and LOUISVILLE, CO (September 16, 2014) – Coalfire Systems Inc. (Coalfire), a respected Payment Card Industry (PCI) Payment Application – Qualified Security Assessor (PA-QSA) company, has released a white paper with InstaMed, the leading Healthcare Payments Network, on the latest topics in payment card security for the healthcare industry. As part of the white paper, Coalfire includes its assessment and validation of the security of InstaMed payment solutions, including its EMV compliance, point-to-point encryption (P2PE), and its mobile app, InstaMed Go.

“Our mission is to deliver the knowledge that organizations need in order to meet the highest levels of payment card security,” said Kennet Westby, President of Coalfire. “After conducting comprehensive technical lab testing and forensic analysis of InstaMed’s healthcare payment solutions for various devices, including web-based computers and mobile devices, we have validated its security and effectiveness. When properly deployed, the InstaMed solutions have some of the most effective data security controls available in healthcare today.”
“Recent large scale data breaches emphasize the high financial and reputational costs associated with a breach and the necessity to eliminate potential risks that lead to breaches,” said Bill Marvin, President and CEO of InstaMed. “With future EMV requirements and increasing mobile payments, protecting cardholder data is crucial to the success of health plans and healthcare providers, including at the point of interaction. Compliance is among our highest priorities at InstaMed to ensure security for payment processing across all payment channels, and we are excited that Coalfire has validated our efforts.”
