Tripwire Enterprise Turns a Triple Play for Teranet

Leading Electronic Services Provider Leverages Configuration Control for PCI, Bill 198, and Closed-Loop Change Management

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - June 24, 2008) - Tripwire today announced that Teranet, a leading provider of integrated land-based information products and services within Ontario, Canada, has implemented Tripwire Enterprise, the leading configuration control solution. Tripwire Enterprise helps this e-services innovator achieve compliance with both the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and Bill 198, a bill that provides similar legislation in Canada to the U.S. Sarbanes-Oxley Act. In addition, enabled by an integration of Tripwire Enterprise with BMC Remedy, Teranet can now maintain a closed-loop change management process that automatically discovers unauthorized changes: a requisite for protecting confidential client information and financial reporting applications.

Teranet was initially interested in implementing Tripwire solely for PCI compliance, but soon discovered a whole suite of capabilities to meet its broader compliance, security and operations needs. "The return on investment from Tripwire is amazing," said Ruza Manojlovic, Security Operations Manager at Teranet. "We set out to simply meet a PCI requirement and discovered that the same technology enables us to address multiple regulations, strengthen our change control processes, and even eliminate existing software that has been made obsolete by Tripwire Enterprise's expanding capabilities."

Tripwire Enterprise 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 investigated. This approach to both continuously assess server configurations and audit production changes enables Teranet to better manage risk by providing continuous, automated compliance and security across its IT infrastructure.

Ms. Manojlovic praised the comprehensiveness of the Tripwire Enterprise solution for helping Teranet meet external regulatory requirements as well as improving internal operations. "Believe it or not, what's required for regulatory compliance is good for security and operations," Ms. Manojlovic said. "Tripwire Enterprise allows us to address all three."
