TransNational Not Affected by Heartbleed Security Bug

ROSEMONT, IL (15 April 2014) – TransNational Bankcard, the leading payment technology provider in the Chicagoland area, issued a statement today that TransNational is not impacted by the Heartland bug.

“TransNational does not use OpenSSL for certificate management of protected information and is not vulnerable to Heartbleed. We have ensured all partners and platforms are secure,” says President Jae Haas of TransNational.

The Heartbleed bug affects the OpenSSL framework and is a serious vulnerability that enables access to protected information, such as secret keys used to encrypt traffic and identify service providers, usernames and passwords of users, and the content associated with the site.

Internet users could be affected by this bug if they use OpenSSL sites, including social sites, commercial sites, software installation sites, or even government-run sites. On sites where security has already been restored, TransNational recommends regularly resetting all passwords.

ROSEMONT, IL (27 March 2014) -

TransNational Bankcard, LLC., a Chicago-based merchant services provider, announced today a partnership with Vision96, expanding TransNational’s service offerings into the telecommunications industry.

As a component of TransNational’s overall product and service portfolio, telecommunications and technology solutions will enable TN clients to access affordable integrated communications consultants. “When we think about the overall value we provide to our clients on a day-to-day basis, we realize it’s much more than just comprehensive payment solutions.  A primary question we need to answer is, ‘How can our clients get paid in a way that is most congruent with their business needs?’ Stemming from that is, ‘What implications arise relating to the security and reliability of the client networks that these payments will occur on?’” Says Jae Haas, president of TransNational.

Being able to offer telecommunications consulting through Vision96 not only facilitates Haas’ goal of benefitting his clients’ bottom line, but also addresses a wide gap recognized in the B2B market.  “Every day, we understand more about outdated communications strategies currently syphoning money from our clients, while at the same time causing potentially significant vulnerabilities. Through this partnership, we hope to help solve some IT challenges for SMBs and global enterprises,” continues Haas.

Adam Nirenberg, president of Vision96, founded the company in late 2013, aiming to provide expert vendor agnostic advice about telecommunications and technology solutions to small to mid-size businesses and enterprises.  Already making a footprint in transformative communications, Vision96 has partnered with companies like X4 Solutions – a company dedicated to providing successful carrier services, data center management, and cloud services – to provide the most comprehensive solutions to its market.

“We at X4 are very excited about partnering with Vision96 and have extended all available resources to help it achieve early success,” says President of X4 Curt Allen. “We have been fortunate enough to have worked with Adam in the past and have been involved with Vision96 from the early planning stage.  The combination of Adam’s experience and a well thought out business plan will lead to tremendous success for Vision96.”

TransNational, Off Color Brewing Represent Relationship Marketing

In Uncategorized on February 19, 2014 at 9:40 am

TransNational announced this week the launch of its first-ever marketing video highlighting the importance of positive relationships to its business model.  This version illustrates the partnership between Chicago-based brewer Off Color Brewing and the payment processing company.
The intent of the inaugural video is to not just showcase TransNational’s concern for client development, but also provide the small start-up brewer with publicity on a national level.  Based in Chicago, IL, Off Color Brewing was conceptualized in 2008 by John Laffler and Dave Bleitner.  Now, the brewery produces specialty beers and microbrews available throughout the Chicagoland area.
TransNational takes great pride in its first audio-visual attestation of its relationship marketing approach.  For years, the company nourished a friendly sales and support style that encourages its employees to become invested in client growth and development.  In order for TransNational’s clients to succeed, they must be equipped with payment enabling devices appropriate to the business’ needs.  These may range from e-commerce solutions, to mobile devices, point-of-sale software, or credit card terminals.  TransNational sales and support staff strive to understand merchant experiences to ensure optimal service and product offerings.
After years of taking the aforementioned approach, TransNational decided it was time to share its story publicly.  You can find Off Color Brewing’s story here or at
