Tripwire has implemented a three-tiered approach to promoting the PCI Data Security Standard awareness through customer education and partnerships with technology and financial organisations.
Tripwire is a configuration audit and control solutions provider and is active in multiple PCI-related organisations including the PCI Security Standards Council and the PCI Security Vendor Alliance, two global organizations whose mission it is to enhance payment account data security by fostering broad adoption of the PCI Data Security Standards and helping secure sensitive or confidential cardholder data.
Tripwire has also built relationships around PCI with financial and technology firms such as Ambiron TrustWave, BMC Software, Bearing Point, and Protiviti. These partnerships provide a clearer view for retailers to the importance of enabling continuous PCI compliance, reducing security exposure, and allowing businesses to focus on driving efficiencies and innovation.
Leveraging its market leading Configuration Audit and Control technology, Tripwire Enterprise has helped many customers like VML and GSI, InStoreCard, and Stamps.com establish PCI compliance. Tripwire is educating customers with a PCI Resource Centre unique with background, case studies, pod casts and management papers.
"AMR Research is in the process of conducting comprehensive research to analyse retailer readiness, organizational accountability, and ongoing costs for security and compliance. With PCI deadlines looming for level one and level two merchants, tools to help monitor intrusions and establish tight access controls are a necessity," said Robert Garf, research director at AMR Research.
