Founded in 1986, Rent-A-Center (RAC) has more than 4,285 retail locations across 50 states, Washington, D.C., Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico. Its stores offer people an easy, affordable way to furnish their homes without incurring a continuing obligation and without needing access to credit. RAC also has a store within a store concept where customers at Ashley furniture or hhgregg, for example, have an option to rent to own if they don’t qualify for store credit.
RAC’s challenge was to evolve its security using a DevOps approach and applying Security by Design principles. It wanted to apply these principles and approach across projects at RAC—starting with its Acceptance Now business unit which supports RAC’s “store within a store” partners. RAC partnered with Flux7 which enabled them to take the Security by Design principles and start implementing them with a Security First framework. Flux7 was also instrumental in helping RAC enable DevOps philosophies within the organization
RAC and Flux7 approached the challenge with three pillars: Security, Availability and Innovation which were built into RAC’s AWS-enabled cloud solution. Beginning with the up-front design, Flux7 and RAC split the accounts and Virtual Private Clouds (VPC) by applications
