Rabobank: A Multinational Banking and Financial Services Company

Netherlands-based Rabobank is a leader in sustainability-oriented banking and has been listed by Global Finance magazine as one of the world’s ten safest banks. Rabobank’s thousands of servers—located in several dozen datacenters distributed around the globe—are critical to every aspect of the bank’s operations.

Each system, typically running either Microsoft Windows, Linux or Solaris, is specifically configured to comply with regional and local security standards, as well as individual corporate mandates. The bank needed a solution to ensure that once a new server had been staged and delivered its operating system remained fully compliant with the original specifications, and that no unauthorized modifications had occurred.




Rabobank uses Tripwire Enterprise extensively and it continues to do a really great job for us. Tripwire provides visibility and protects our most critical assets across our entire global infrastructure; enabling us to be compliant in each of the many countries we do business. I would absolutely recommend it!
