DALLAS -- 7-Eleven Inc. selected Bit9 Inc.’s Parity solution to proactively protect the company’s retail systems from malware, data leakage and unauthorized software, as well as provide Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance, the technology firm stated.
"7-Eleven is now able to more easily and efficiently maintain a more standard and secure in-store systems environment," Tom Murphy, chief strategy officer at Bit9, said in a statement. "Bit9 Parity gives 7-Eleven the protection, compliance and control they need over their retail IT operations."
As part of the deal, Bit9 Parity will lock down and harden 7-Eleven’s corporate laptops, which are currently being standardized for store support and office personnel. 7-Eleven will use Bit9 Parity to control applications running on laptops, to reduce help desk calls and costs due to unauthorized software, according to Bit9.
"At 7-Eleven, we are committed to securing our corporate infrastructure as well as our in-store systems," Brian Cator, senior director of IT operations and customer care for 7-Eleven, said in a statement. "By locking down and securing our laptops and store systems with Bit9 Parity, we are able to enforce our company policies, implement a control for PCI DSS requirements, and reduce the risk of known and unknown security vulnerabilities."
