ABINGDON, Va. — K-VA-T Food Stores [2] here, which operates 105 stores in Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee, has adopted Tripwire Enterprise software from Portland, Ore.-based Tripwire to facilitate compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

"While automating for PCI compliance was the main catalyst for implementing Tripwire Enterprise, we also leverage its capabilities for file integrity monitoring, tracking logins and enhancing security," said Paul Widener, vice president of information services, K-VA-T Food Stores, in a statement.

Widener said the system is able to process large amounts of data from devices across networks. It also allows the K-VA-T's system administrators to develop a hierarchy of issues to be investigated, categorizing certain changes as regular occurrences while tagging others as needing investigation.
