MarketLive Proves PCI Compliance With Tripwire Enterprise

Premier eCommerce Solution Provider Leverages Configuration Audit and Control to Deliver a Single PCI-Compliant Solution Serving Its Retail Clients

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - December 11, 2007) - Tripwire today announced that MarketLive, Inc., a premier eCommerce solution provider serving leading catalogers, specialty retailers, and internationally known brands, has selected and implemented Tripwire Enterprise, the leading configuration audit and control solution. MarketLive chose Tripwire Enterprise to help it achieve and maintain continuous compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), as a market advantage in serving its retail clients facing PCI compliance themselves.

Said Barak Engel, MarketLive CISO, "While our initial goal with Tripwire Enterprise was PCI compliance, the day-to-day value of Tripwire is stronger change control and greater operational efficiency. The savings we are now realizing in these areas alone far outweigh our investment, which essentially means that we are getting PCI compliance for free and providing greater value on many fronts to our customers."

MarketLive recently announced its certified compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard, delivering on a promise it had made to customers to do so. With the help of Tripwire, it was able to become compliant under the allotted time and budget. MarketLive PCI compliance will benefit its clients through enhanced security and negates the need for clients to audit MarketLive's systems themselves.

Tripwire and MarketLive

Tripwire Enterprise automatically scans the MarketLive enterprise for configuration settings to determine their compliance with PCI and other security standards and provides a report detailing the delta between an enterprise's current state and what is needed to reach compliance. In addition, Tripwire detects unauthorized, non-compliant change to enterprise-wide systems and alerts IT staff so that exceptions to PCI or other policies can immediately be identified and investigated. This approach provides MarketLive with continuous, automated PCI compliance across its environment and better risk management.

MarketLive also gained operational benefits from Tripwire. With complete visibility over unauthorized and unexpected changes, it was able to reduce the need to rebuild systems, and has increased its problem and incident resolution response times by being able to quickly rule change in or out as a factor. If change-related, Tripwire gives MarketLive IT the ability to quickly pinpoint the responsible change and remediate it. What once took days now takes literally minutes.

"MarketLive saw an investment in Tripwire as a way to gain a competitive advantage," said Dan Schoenbaum, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. "Taking the steps to become PCI compliant illustrates a strong commitment to customers and Tripwire plays a key role in ensuring that MarketLive will remain continuously compliant, while enforcing MarketLive processes that result in high system availability and security."
