PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - March 7, 2008) - ARPU, Inc., a rapidly growing startup in the online advertising space, has selected and implemented Tripwire Enterprise, the leading configuration audit and control solution. ARPU chose Tripwire Enterprise to help it maintain continuous compliance across multiple regulatory standards, including the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (DSS). ARPU was particularly drawn to Tripwire Enterprise for the ease and speed with which it could be implemented out-of-the-box.

Tripwire automatically detects unauthorized, non-compliant change to enterprise-wide systems and virtual environments and immediately alerts IT staff so that exceptions to its change and release management policies can be immediately updated and investigated.
