C3 Solutions Adopts Tripwire VIA, Bolsters Customer Partnerships with Security in the Cloud

Managed services company stays ahead in a changing industry with a durable, secure platform based on best practices.

Portland, OR - Sep 27, 2012 - Tripwire, a leading global provider of IT security solutions, announced today that C3 Solutions, a customized technology solutions provider, has implemented Tripwire® VIA™ to strengthen security and offer customers a safe, compliant cloud computing environment.

C3, based in Houston, Texas, is at the forefront of change in the hosted services industry. At a time when even the smallest of businesses are considering migrating from client-server model to software-as-a-service and cloud computing, selecting a provider that offers high-level security and compliance for a variety of regulatory standards, from PCI to HIPAA, can be extremely challenging. By turning to Tripwire, C3 differentiates itself from the competition.

"Managed services is a partnership, not a one-time sale," said John Feucht, President of C3. "It is vital to us and our clients' businesses to provide a secure, compliant service, whether they are a retailer, manufacturer, healthcare provider or legal firm."

With Tripwire VIA, C3 gains 24/7 file integrity monitoring, out-of-the-box policy templates for multiple regulatory standards, hardened security across systems, configuration management for server, virtual and cloud services, and automatic security alerts and reporting.

"Tripwire is the key component in an overall risk reduction platform using complementary technologies, such as data loss prevention and employee monitoring - the possible points of vulnerability," said Feucht. "With Tripwire, we offer our customers security intelligence, analysis and best practices, something few providers in our business niche are able to match."

Feucht sees a depth of capabilities in Tripwire, something he says was lacking in other solutions, and which will enable scalability as C3 grows in scope and offerings. The company plans to leverage Tripwire as a business driver.

Tripwire VIA includes Tripwire Enterprise and Tripwire Log Center®. It offers visibility to suspicious, unusual or unexpected behavior across the data center; actionable intelligence to make prioritized business decisions; and cost-saving automation for security hardening, monitoring and mitigating risks.
