Tripwire Inc., the world leader in integrity assurance solutions, today announced Tripwire Professional Audit Preparedness Services. Using Tripwire software, these services will provide customers the ability to comply with many audit requirements for IT operational practises or to meet the stringent regulations in their respective industries like Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLB Act), and Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Specifically, this Preparedness Service supports those requirements dealing with data integrity and accountability in change management, configuration management and overall IT process integrity.
Tripwire Professional Audit Preparedness Services will help IT administrators evaluate change and configuration management processes and integrate Tripwire software as a detective and corrective control to help satisfy audit requirements. Tripwire will work with organisations to ensure that the appropriate systems and data assets are being appropriately monitored to meet audit reporting requirements.
Auditing has become an increasingly critical component of enterprise IT programmes. The growing complexity of regulations makes it difficult and resource intensive to implement and manage activities needed for compliance. Furthermore, this increased complexity often clashes with organisations' need to further streamline operations in response to economic pressures.
"Reporting on the system of internal controls is required for almost any organisation seeking to meet regulatory compliance, including the Section 404 requirements for Sarbanes-Oxley. In the domain of IT computer operational controls, assurance hinges upon the integrity of the critical underlying IT change and configuration management processes," said Gene Kim, CTO of Tripwire. "Tripwire Professional Audit Preparedness Services help customers monitor and report on the effectiveness of controls in security, change control, operational assurance and service-level processes."
Audits can be extremely resource intensive, as organisations must report in considerable detail which applications are supporting critical business processes, the changes made to the infrastructure, customer, financial or patient data over time, and whether those changes were authorised. This can be a tedious and error-prone process.
When integrity management is used to help enforce IT best practices, such as effective change and configuration management, organisations can evaluate systems and controls against a known good state and meet compliance regulations-they also gain understandable, verifiable information that enables them to significantly improve systems availability, IT service quality, IT staff productivity and cost savings.
Tripwire Professional Services provides comprehensive training, deployment, integration and auditing services. Tripwire Authorised Training Centres are located throughout North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. Tripwire Professional Services allow the customer to maximise the benefits of their Tripwire software investment without taking internal IT resources away from core business initiatives.
