Sally Beauty Supply is the latest victim of a security breach that targets the stores payment systems.
Sally Beauty spokeswoman Karen Fugate said the company recently detected an intrusion into its network, but that neither the company’s information technology experts nor an outside forensics firm could find evidence that customer card data had been stolen from the company’s systems.
Fugate said Sally Beauty uses an intrusion detection product which detected unusual activity around February 24 and sent out an alert.
In response to the alert, the company’s information technology department “shut down all external communications” and began an investigation.
The Company says that initial evidence suggests no data got out of the store, but the investigation will continue.
Texas-based Sally Beauty maintains some 2,600 stores across the United States.
