Vesta Drives Business Results with Tripwire Enterprise

Portland, OR - Jan 16, 2008 - Tripwire today announced that Vesta, a global provider of electronic payment and risk management solutions, has implemented Tripwire Enterprise to enhance its system auditability, predictability and reliability.


Due to the nature of Vesta’s business and the stature of its clientele, annual audits including the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) are required of Vesta’s internal process controls. While Vesta has been PCI compliant since 2004, the assessment has taken as long as two weeks. In addition, clients periodically inspect Vesta’s internal operational and security process controls to ensure their requirements and risk concerns are properly addressed. Seeing the opportunity to operationalize compliance for competitive advantage, Vesta leveraged Tripwire Enterprise to shorten its audit preparation from weeks to days.

“The benefit is substantial,” said James Summers, Vesta CISO, of his ability to shorten the audit process of change-related controls by nearly 70%. “Tripwire is great because you can walk the assessor through multiple parts of the PCI Standards in one place. And because it is one tool everyone in the payments industry uses, auditors accept it immediately; I don’t have to spend extra time defending my choice to use Tripwire.”
