CKE Restaurants Chooses Lastline for APT Protection — Case Study

The Challenge

CKE Restaurants owns, operates and franchises some of the most popular brands in the quick-service restaurant industry, including Carl’s Jr., Hardee’s, Green Burrito and Red Burrito, in more than 3,480 locations in 42 states and in 31 countries. As a restaurant chain of this caliber, CKE is expected to handle and protect customer data with the utmost diligence.

CKE Restaurants Retailer Selects Lastline for APT Protection

“Customers and employees entrust personally identifiable information with us under the assumption that CKE has the most advanced security measures in place and their information is safe,” said Tom Lindblom, Chief Technology Officer of CKE. “When data began to surface revealing advanced malware attacks targeting PoS systems, and the inability for traditional antivirus to defend against these sophisticated threats, we knew we had to act quickly to update our security toolset.”

The Solution

CKE began researching advanced malware protection solutions that could monitor both web and email vectors and compliment existing security tools in place. They ultimately chose Lastline because of its superior detection capabilities and ability to easily scale.

“Our goal at CKE is to do more with less, and minimize the number of false positives we see. Lastline’s deep inspection technique filtered out almost all false positives. When compared to first-generation sandboxing techniques, the advantage of the approach was clear.” – Tom Lindblom
