With Business Competition Rising and Cyber Attacks Always a Concern for Financial Institutions, Atlantic Credit & Finance, Inc. Takes Proactive Steps to Increase Their Market Differentiator and Prevent Data Breaches

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - Oct 10, 2012) - Tripwire, a leading global provider of IT security solutions, announced today that Atlantic Credit & Finance, Inc., a leading purchaser and manager of unsecured, consumer-distressed assets, has implemented Tripwire VIA™ to meet standards for the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), harden system security and maintain auditing capabilities on servers.

In the search for a tool to help them meet PCI DSS compliance, Atlantic Credit & Finance, Inc. also wanted a solution that included security information and event management (SIEM), file integrity monitoring (FIM) and system security hardening. Tripwire was the only company that provided all these capabilities in one solution, Tripwire VIA. 

Atlantic Credit & Finance, Inc. manages the personal credit information of thousands of consumers and the company has always taken privacy and protection seriously. By turning to Tripwire VIA, they gain the ability to pre-empt and resolve security issues, and meet compliance standards for PCI DSS.

"Being PCI compliant also helps us compete in the marketplace," said Bruce Ingram, IT Manager for Atlantic Credit & Finance, Inc. "It levels the playing field in the ability to purchase debt, and meets vendor needs for a standard of security and compliance."

With Tripwire VIA, which includes Tripwire® Enterprise and Tripwire Log Center®, Atlantic Credit & Finance, Inc. gains 24/7 file integrity monitoring, out-of-the-box policy templates for multiple regulatory standards, hardened security across systems, configuration management for server, virtual and cloud services, and automatic security alerts and reporting. Tripwire VIA offers visibility across systems, with automatic alerts to suspicious, unusual or unexpected system changes; actionable intelligence to make prioritized business decisions; and cost-saving automation for security hardening, monitoring and mitigating risks.

With orchestrated cyber attacks on the rise, Atlantic Credit & Finance, Inc. is working diligently to identify vulnerabilities and prevent data breaches.
