Leading Nationwide Provider of FDIC-Insured Financial Services

This nationally recognized financial solutions provider offers a set of services that enable smaller banks and other related institutions to compete with the industry’s dominant players. The company’s portfolio of FDIC-insured solutions enables its members and other key constituents to offer innovative services that otherwise might be too difficult or too costly to provide on their own.

Continuous availability is a must-have in the world of financial services—interruptions of any kind, for whatever reason, are unacceptable. Each component in the company’s complex infrastructure was a potential source of disruption. Implementing a solution to monitor individual changes and highlight possible incompatibilities became a business imperative.

 

Tripwire Enterprise is a vital tool for us—it helps us maintain a more secure and controlled environment. It enables us to be very efficient in our analysis and remediation of change-related issues, and with the time we save we can optimize other areas.Without Tripwire there’s no way I can monitor changes or installed patches. It allows us to execute change in a very structured and disciplined manner, and to immediately identify anything that doesn’t conform to the policies and rules that we’ve put in place.
