Fiberlink Automates Operational Review Process, Gains Total Visibility on IT Changes with Tripwire Enterprise

Portland, OR - Jan 5, 2010 - Tripwire®, the leader in data center compliance and infrastructure management, announced today that Fiberlink, a provider of software and services that simplify and secure mobile operations for enterprises worldwide, has implemented Tripwire Enterprise to automate what had been a time-consuming manual process of IT reviews and investigations.  With 24/7 file integrity monitoring, Tripwire Enterprise also enables Fiberlink to gain 100 percent visibility over change activity on its customer systems, including physical and virtual environments.

 

File integrity monitoring also provides organizations with data needed to satisfy various IT audits and compliance regulations. For Fiberlink, this capability from Tripwire has helped them meet reporting and internal control standards for the Statement on Auditing Standard 70 (SAS 70) for accounting processes.

Tracking changes can be expensive in terms of the time spent trying to determine who authorized a change, when they did it, and why they did it. Tripwire lowers these costs by detecting change automatically and immediately, and by recording all the forensic details—who, what, when, where, how—in one place. This enables Fiberlink to cut costs by eliminating manual processes, being able to quickly investigate problems, and helping enforce change control and management processes. As a result, system availability has less disruption and security is tightened.

"Fiberlink is known for providing its customers with on-demand and secure mobile services that help them conduct their businesses all over world," said David Lingenfelter, Information Security Officer at Fiberlink. "With Tripwire Enterprise, we now enjoy that same level of service in our data center, enabling us to access operational information at the push of a button. This means no more long hours spent manually investigating and reviewing changes. Tripwire has helped us improve operations."

Tripwire Enterprise is the only solution that provides a single source for detecting, analyzing and reporting all change across the entire IT infrastructure. Users specify how frequently to monitor for change, and can even check for change on an event-driven basis. Tripwire Enterprise also comes with policy templates that assess relevant configurations across physical and virtual infrastructure, alerting administrators to settings that are out of line with compliance requirements. Once configurations have been adjusted, Tripwire's file integrity monitoring ensures they stay in compliance with automatic alerts about any suspect change activity.  If an issue arises, Tripwire provides remediation assistance to quickly fix out-of-compliance settings. Tripwire also automatically stores a history of test results, providing an audit trail that can be easily generated as reports in preparation for the auditing process. These capabilities reduce the burden of attaining and proving continuous compliance.
