Datapipe Relies on Tripwire Enterprise to Ensure Audit Success

Portland, OR - Jun 23, 2009 - Tripwire®, the leader in data center compliance and infrastructure management, announced today that DataPipe, a provider of managed global IT services to a range of vertical industries, has adopted Tripwire Enterprise to sustain continuous compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Tripwire's solution strengthens DataPipe’s Managed Security and Compliance Services and has become a key component of their ability to win new business in the midst of a challenging economic environment.


DataPipe offers a fully managed, turnkey PCI DSS solution that requires best-in-class monitoring and assessment technology to meet the mission-critical needs of their clients. Tripwire's ability to monitor change, assess configurations and automate the audit process ensures that DataPipe clients achieve and maintain compliance, even as security needs and regulatory standards evolve.

"Data security and regulatory compliance are at the top of the requirements list when potential and current clients review our ability to provide high value IT services," said Joel Friedman, Chief Security Officer at DataPipe. "With Tripwire, we have not only strengthened our security and compliance posture, but can also maintain it with a continuous and automated system that we can easily monitor across all data centers."

Tripwire Enterprise automates file integrity monitoring and configuration assessment while strengthening security and simultaneously providing compliance evidence and solving availability enhancement issues. The solution comes with policy templates designed especially for PCI DSS use. These templates can be used to evaluate whether systems are in compliance with standards. And since it additionally keeps a history of test results, it clearly understands the system status at all times and maintains a state of compliance. Since an audit trail is automatically generated, users can readily respond to audits and prepare reports.
