Datapipe Optimizes Managed Security Operations with Tripwire Enterprise

Portland, OR - Jun 30, 2010 - Tripwire, a leader in data center compliance and infrastructure management, announced today that long time client Datapipe has broadened implementation of their managed security best practices as a result of using Tripwire Enterprise. As a leading provider of managed IT and hosting services, Datapipe utilizes Tripwire's continuous audit solution for its turnkey PCI DSS solution.


"Many of our clients face compliance requirements from multiple industries. While PCI DSS is a well-defined, rigorous standard for those in the payment card industry, many of the other industry requirements are unclear, making it difficult for businesses to assess their level of compliance," said Joel Friedman, Chief Security Officer at Datapipe.

In response, an increasing number of businesses outside the payment card industry are deploying PCI DSS solutions across the enterprise to meet a range of industry requirements. "With Tripwire's best-in-class solution, our clients are able to strengthen their security and compliance stance across the enterprise," Friedman said.

Tripwire Enterprise automates file integrity monitoring and configuration assessment while strengthening security and simultaneously providing compliance evidence and solving availability enhancement issues. Built-in policy templates evaluate whether changes made to systems are in compliance with standards, notifying IT managers if a change may put systems out of compliance. If a problem does occur, Tripwire Enterprise offers remediation assistance, providing a step-by-step process for fixing the fault. This ensures that events are quickly dealt with and systems remain secure and in compliance.
