Release to Production Improves Security, Change Management With Tripwire Enterprise

Industry Leader Leverages Configuration Assessment & Auditing for Tightened Security, Increased Availability

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - June 26, 2008) - Release to Production, a provider of business-critical managed hosting solutions, has selected and implemented Tripwire Enterprise, the leading configuration audit and control solution. Release to Production uses Tripwire to improve security and provide change management as a competitive advantage.

"Tripwire Enterprise sets us apart from other managed hosting providers. Our customers have a breadcrumb trail of every system and application change that has ever taken place," said Glen Kendell, president of Release to Production. "I love Tripwire because it makes us better IT professionals. For the past 4 years, Tripwire has helped us adhere to established processes for release management and system maintenance."

The Woodland Park Zoo of Seattle, Washington recently selected Release to Production as their managed hosting provider. "Security and PCI are at the forefront of our IT initiatives this year," said Bob Vesely, IT Director of the Woodland Park Zoo. "Moving our production environment under the umbrella of Release to Production made total sense because Tripwire Enterprise is a major piece of the puzzle in achieving PCI compliance."

Rob Katz, president of Del Mar DataTrac, a leading mortgage lending software company and client of Release to Production, likes the security Tripwire Enterprise brings. "I sleep better at night knowing that our applications hosted by Release to Production are protected with Tripwire. Our banking clients must follow strict regulatory guidelines, and the security Tripwire enforces helps us meet those compliance requirements."

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 Release to Production to know that actual changes match the expected changes, ensuring customers' peace of mind.
