Tripwire Brings Security and Compliance to the Cloud with Secured By Tripwire Partner Program

RSA Conference - San Francisco, CA - Feb 14, 2011 - Tripwire, a leading global provider of IT security and compliance automation solutions,today announced the launch of “Secured by Tripwire,” a cloud security partner program for managed service and cloud providers. Participation in the Secured by Tripwire program entitles MSP/cloud providers to Tripwire’s comprehensive suite of managed compliance and security services to protect sensitive customer data, while ensuring continuous compliance and infrastructure security using a cost effective, easy to deploy model. Tripwire Inc can be found in booth number 1132 at the RSA Conference.
 
Organizations are increasingly looking for opportunities to move to the cloud, and managed service and cloud providers are faced with both growth opportunities and competitive pressures. New cloud players are forcing traditional managed hosts to expand and find new value-added services and security capabilities in order to differentiate, including the ability to target security concerns in the cloud. The Secured by Tripwire program enables MSPs and cloud partners to distinguish their platforms with unparalleled, cross-industry compliance services that address common industry regulations – such as PCI, FISMA, HIPAA and NERC – integrated with the proven Tripwire® VIA™ suite for proactive log management, integrity monitoring, and security and compliance policy management services.
 
“As a leading provider of managed services and cloud, we are constantly seeking ways to innovate and deliver distinctive offerings that address the most pressing needs of our customers, particularly security,” said Christopher Day, Chief Security Architect and Senior Vice President of Secure Information Services, Terremark. “The Secured by Tripwire program enables Terremark to further differentiate our offerings as more comprehensive and secure. Our clients will know that we will not only deploy and manage their sensitive data in the cloud, but we will also safeguard it by automating security and compliance.”
 
“Security is top of mind for companies of all sizes, but the needs of each are vastly different. In order to acquire new customers, retain existing ones and remain competitive, managed service providers require the tools to offer clients with comprehensive yet flexible security and compliance offerings,” said Tim Irvine, Sales Director, INetU. “INetU chose to engage in the Secured by Tripwire program because of Tripwire’s proficiency in addressing a broad range of regulations and policies across multiple industries, effectively meeting our customers’ needs. We have been able to not only improve operational efficiencies, but also reduce cost of service delivery for our clients.”
