INTTRA Ocean Freight Services Finds Smoother Sailing with Tripwire® Remote Operations Services
Portland, OR - Feb 8, 2011 - Tripwire Inc., a leading global provider of IT security and compliance automation solutions, announced today that INTTRA, an international provider of e-commerce solutions to the ocean freight industry and a long-time customer of Tripwire, has streamlined its IT operations by employing Tripwire Remote Services to manage ongoing tasks of Tripwire Enterprise. This allows INTTRA to take full advantage of what the Tripwire Enterprise solution offers, such as full visibility over changes made across the network, change assessment and remediation, change control processes, and helping ensure system availability to its large customer base.
With more than 12 percent of the total world's ocean freight orders originating through its systems, and more than 25 million cargo containers tracked each year, INTTRA has the same complex IT requirements of a Fortune 100 company. Yet as a mid-sized company, its technology team did not have the resources to fully engage all that the Tripwire Enterprise solution has to offer in change control, compliance and security.
"Outsourcing to Tripwire Remote Operations was based on a strategic decision to streamline our operations and allow our IT team to do what they do best, engineer business solutions for our customers in the ocean shipping industry," said Anthony Costa, Managing Director of Global Technology, INTTRA. "It was the right solution now and for the future as we undertake new and complex projects."
Tripwire Remote Operations gives companies such as INTTRA the ability to switch focus from daily product administration to strategic analysis of data. Tripwire experts handle the data gathering and present it as actionable information. With Tripwire Remote Operations, overseeing change control, security and compliance isn't just another task in a long list of IT responsibilities, but rather, is correctly prioritized and handled by dedicated, experienced experts.
INTTRA plans on systems compliance with ISO 27002:2005 within 24-36 months. With Tripwire Enterprise and Remote Services in place, the company is positioned for the enhanced security and compliance control these types of reporting and regulations require.
"We've done for ourselves what we do for our ocean freight customers, and that is to help them focus on their core business rather than on administrative tasks," said Costa.
