Redner's Markets Automates PCI Compliance with Tripwire Enterprise, Speeds Processes

Portland, OR - Mar 15, 2010 - Tripwire®, the leader in IT security and compliance automation solutions, announced today that Redner’s Markets, a regional chain of warehouse-style and quick-stop grocery stores located in the northeastern U.S., has implemented Tripwire Enterprise to help meet its Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) goals. What was once a time-consuming manual process for Redner’s is now fully automated with file integrity monitoring and automatic configuration assessments across all PCI-related networks.

 

Compliance automation has dramatically improved the company’s operational efficiencies. Even reporting is automatic, as Tripwire Enterprise archives all change data and makes it available at the push of a button. For Redner’s Markets, automating compliance is equivalent to the time when the grocery business moved from manual checkout operations to computerized, automated scanners with detailed receipts.

"Throughout its history, Redner’s Markets has been committed to superior customer service and implementing the latest in operational systems. This has enabled us to experience remarkable business growth," said Nicholas Hidalgo, IT Director at Redner’s Markets. "Using Tripwire Enterprise to automate PCI compliance helps us ensure our customers that we are providing the best possible protection of their financial data. Automation also allows my team to use their skills to better serve both customers and corporate goals."

Tripwire Enterprise has saved the IT team valuable system administration time, helping them more efficiently manage multiple types of markets with PCI requirements. This solution allows them to monitor activity on network devices from a central corporate location where they can easily monitor systems for unauthorized changes and quickly investigate exceptions to policy. Tripwire also offers valuable reporting capabilities that Redner’s executives and auditors require for documenting IT change history and demonstrating compliance.

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 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, file integrity monitoring ensures they stay in compliance with automatic alerts about any suspect change activity. If an issue arises, Tripwire Enterprise provides remediation assistance to quickly fix out-of-compliance settings. It 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.
