Tripwire Lends PCI 1.2 Support to Aegis Ltd Securing Systems for Its Financial Transaction Sector

With Aegis Account, Tripwire Broadens International Customer Base in the Philippines and Costa Rica

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - September 10, 2009) - Tripwire®, the market leader in configuration control solutions, announced today that Aegis Ltd, one of the leading business process outsourcing (BPO) companies in the world, has adopted Tripwire Enterprise to enhance auditing processes, secure financial transaction systems, and automate and maintain compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard 1.2 (PCI 1.2). This enables Aegis to retain high levels of customer confidence and ensure business continuity as the company supports its Fortune 500 customer base.

While Aegis chose Tripwire Enterprise specifically to address the PCI 1.2 standard, the company's locations and myriad software systems presented a unique challenge. Apart from the Phillipines, Aegis also has a major presence in the U.S., Costa Rica, Australia, Philippines, India and Africa. Data center operations are an integration of various systems and software, including Avaya, Cisco, Verint, HP, Dell, Talisma and Lucent. This situation required a file integrity monitoring and compliance solution that could operate independently across complex processes and systems. Tripwire Enterprise was the ideal choice.

"Tripwire Enterprise not only provided the means for achieving compliance with PCI 1.2, but also helped us implement the change controls, file integrity monitoring and reporting capabilities needed to streamline the auditing process," said Rahul Kamalakar, Global CTO at Aegis Ltd. "In addition, Tripwire Professional Services provided the support and technological expertise we needed to quickly implement a compliance solution."

Tripwire Enterprise automates audit processing with enhanced file integrity monitoring, tracking changes, assessing configurations, helping remediate issues that could place systems at risk, and providing the detailed change process reports that satisfy auditors. These automated processes reduce the costs and manpower of conducting ongoing audits, improving controls and operational efficiency across physical and virtual environments.
