Guests have always visited Ruby Tuesday for its food and hospitality, and now the company is providing data security for its guests as well. The casual-dining chain recently selected Tripwire Enterprise to ensure that all credit-card data is safe and secure. Ruby Tuesday will rely on Tripwire Enterprise 5.5 as part of its overall IT best practices; auditing changes made to its information systems that store, process or support credit cardholder data.
"Ruby Tuesday is committed to being our guests' first choice, and the security of their credit card information is vital," says Nick Ibrahim, Ruby Tuesday's chief information officer. "We have chosen Tripwire Enterprise to help protect cardholder data." The data-security solution will enable Ruby Tuesday to analyze and remediate potential security issues that might otherwise go unnoticed, thereby improving data protection and satisfying specific file integrity monitoring and change control requirements outlined in the new Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Standard. Tripwire Enterprise will also act as a detective control, alerting Ruby Tuesday to any system change across the layers of its IT services--from database structures and directory services, to middleware, servers and network devices. This is important as one small change can be the difference between data security and a data incident.
