Leading Insurance Site Looks to Tripwire to Strengthen Change Management

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - May 1, 2008) - Tripwire today announced its partnership with the 6,000th customer it has served to achieve and maintain a known and trusted state across its infrastructure. eHealth, Inc. (NASDAQ: EHTH), the leading online source of health insurance for individuals, families and small businesses, is deploying Tripwire Enterprise to strengthen its culture of effective and consistent change management.

"This is an exciting time in Tripwire's history," said Dan Schoenbaum, senior VP of marketing and corporate development. "The fact that 6,000 customers have chosen the Tripwire solution for their configuration assessment and auditing needs demonstrates our leadership in a very concrete way. It is great to reach this milestone with another industry leader."

Tripwire automatically detects unauthorized change to enterprise-wide systems and virtual environments and alerts IT staff so that exceptions to its change and release management policies can be immediately updated and investigated. Previously, eHealth leveraged Open Source Tripwire for its configuration assessment and auditing capabilities, and sought to strengthen its culture of effective change management by deploying Tripwire Enterprise's expanded capabilities. In particular, eHealth has benefited from Tripwire's reporting and golden baselining capabilities, as well as its additional stack coverage of network devices, AD and databases.

"Tripwire enables us to streamline our IT processes and change management," said Pradeep Singh, director of operations and data center management. "Given the complexity of our operation and the sensitivity of the information we handle, it's critical that we maintain a known and trusted state."
