New Cloud Offering "Secured By Tripwire(SM)" Selected by Datapipe

New Tripwire Offering Enables Datapipe to Provide Cost Effective Compliance and Security for Cloud Environments

PORTLAND, OR and JERSEY CITY, NJ--(Marketwire - May 12, 2011) - Tripwire, a leading global provider of IT security and compliance automation solutions, today announced that Datapipe, a provider of managed services and infrastructure for IT and cloud computing, has selected Secured by Tripwire. Datapipe is adopting Secured by Tripwire to ensure and sustain continuous compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), across both community and private clouds.

"The Secured by Tripwire program enables Datapipe to leverage configuration assessment as a security baseline," said Joel Friedman, Chief Security Officer, Datapipe. "We need to provide comprehensive and transparent reporting on our extensive security hardening settings, and be able to track these settings across dynamic assets on a continuous basis. With Tripwire's reporting in hand, it is rare to have a client or auditors ask a second question about hardening."

Secured by Tripwire is a cost effective cloud security solution for cloud and managed service providers, enabling them to provide customers with Tripwire's comprehensive suite of managed compliance and security services. Rather than yearly licensing fees, the Tripwire program is the first to offer a flexible, elastic model, charging only by total monthly usage. This enables Datapipe to help customers continue to meet their compliance mandates, while passing along significant cost savings.

Secured by Tripwire provides Datapipe with a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Customized managed services - Datapipe can easily deploy new compliance and security services catered to specific customer needs with a single solution that handles diverse environments ranging from physical infrastructure to private or community clouds while maintaining a separation of data and reporting that are critical to MSPs.
  • Flexible licensing and pricing model - The design of Secured by Tripwire's licensing and pricing options minimizes Datapipe's upfront costs in order to maximize margins.
  • Increased efficiency and control - Tripwire's intelligent monitoring, correlation, reporting and alerting architecture enables Datapipe to efficiently scale, standardize and automate the delivery of information to customers across all industries. Secured by Tripwire also integrates with Datapipe's Tripwire® Enterprise compliance audits, strengthening overall cloud security postures.
  • Comprehensive PCI package - Datapipe can incorporate Secured by Tripwire into its existing PCI package, augmenting it with continuous file integrity monitoring, compliance and security in the cloud and without significant price increases.

"Our mission in creating this offering was to address our customers' cloud security and compliance concerns in a cost effective manner," said Dan Schoenbaum, Chief Business Development Officer, Tripwire. "When creating this offering we wanted to address these concerns by enabling providers to reduce the total cost of compliance and security services for their customers in the cloud, effectively lowering barriers to entry."

Secured by Tripwire offers a flex-license, node-based and elastic-usage model that can be offered as a Tripwire or white label service. For more information on the Secured by Tripwire program, please visit: http://www.tripwire.com/it-industry/managed-service-providers/.
