Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies Selects Tripwire for SOX Compliance & Change Control

Leading Manufacturer of Security Services & Devices Leverages Tripwire Enterprise for Increased System Availability and Regulatory Compliance

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - March 25, 2008) - Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, a global provider of products and services that make environments safe, secure and productive, has selected Tripwire Enterprise, the leading provider of configuration assessment and change audit solutions. Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies chose Tripwire Enterprise to help it maintain continuous compliance with regulatory requirements and to ensure greater overall reliability and availability of its IT infrastructure.

Mitigating the risk of unauthorized IT changes and increasing overall system reliability for the business is a very high priority," said Linda Goettler, Chief Information Security Officer, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies. "Tripwire's ability to manage, track, and document IT changes has allowed us to not only improve our change management process and demonstrate regulatory compliance but has also put us in a good position to detect intrusions."

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. This approach enables Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies to better manage risk by providing continuous, automated compliance across its environment with regulatory standards -- such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, also known as the Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act of 2002. Tripwire Enterprise proves to auditors and IT management that all changes to the servers, databases, directory services and network devices supporting their financial reporting applications conform to change management policies.
