Pep Boys Puts The Brakes On Cyber Threats With Corero Network Security

Stocks in this article: CNSPBY

Corero Network Security (CNS: LN), a leading global provider of Network Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Defense Systems, today announced its IPS is now protecting The Pep Boys – Manny, Moe & Jack – (NYSE: “PBY”) the nation’s leading automotive aftermarket service and retail chain.

For Pep Boys, their customers and employees are paramount, and safeguarding their information is of the utmost importance. To help protect its nationwide network of more than 700 stores and its corporate headquarters against malicious attacks, Pep Boys called on Corero. In addition to information collected from retail transactions, as a customer-centric company, Pep Boys is entrusted with a large amount of customer information through its online “Glovebox” feature, which enables customers to record and conveniently access information about their vehicles and service history.

Corero’s Next Generation IPS proactively protects Pep Boys’ networks against attack. Corero’s IPS also facilitates Pep Boys compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard ( PCI DSS), which requires protection of cardholder data, as well as compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) information security mandates. The IPS also protects against data breaches that would require damaging public disclosure through the more than 40 state data breach notification laws.

“Servicing our customers and safeguarding their information are our number one priorities,” said Pete Bottcher, Pep Boys Information Security Officer. “Corero’s IPS is a key technology we use to protect our customer and employee records.

“PCI is our main compliance challenge. We process millions of credit card transactions annually from our different stores, and they all traverse out network, so meeting PCI DSS requirements is always a top consideration. Corero’s log-based reporting features enabled through its Network Security Analyzer (NSA) tool is particularly useful during PCI DSS audits.”
