CONNECTRIA AND TRIPWIRE JOIN FORCES TO ENHANCE COMPLIANCE HOSTING SOLUTIONS

Add Comprehensive Monitoring to Ensure HIPAA and PCI Compliance

Connectria Hosting & TripwireST. LOUIS, MO. (February 4, 2014) – Connectria Hosting, a global managed and cloud hosting provider, today announced it is expanding its partnership with Tripwire, a leading global provider of risk-based security and compliance management solutions.

To enhance its Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliant hosting solutions, Connectria has added Tripwire Enterprise Compliance Monitoring and Tripwire Log Center to its services portfolio. Tripwire Enterprise provides real time compliance monitoring for a wide variety of regulations, including HIPAA and PCI, and automatically detects critical changes that may affect compliance status or indicate security risks saving significant time and resources.

Tripwire Log Center helps detect attacks and breaches through tight integration with Tripwire Enterprise. This integration allows security teams to respond to IT security threats quickly and prove compliance with security standards. In addition to HIPAA and PCI compliance, the Tripwire solutions will also help address regulations and standards such as Sarbanes-Oxley, NIST, NERC and ISO among others.

“As a leader in HIPAA Compliance Hosting and PCI Compliance Hosting, we continually strive to provide our customers uncompromising security and compliance solutions that are affordable,” noted Steve Grzybinski, Connectria’s director of information security and compliance. Grzybinski added, “Through our expanded relationship and commitment to Tripwire solutions, Connectria’s customers are assured of the best the industry has to offer in security and compliance. At Connectria, we don’t view security as an ‘add-on’ or optional line item, and we demonstrate our commitment to our customers’ security by including these solutions as part of our standard compliance services offerings.”

“We are pleased to expand our relationship with Connectria. They have had a lot of success with our security and compliance solutions and we are looking forward to doing even more together,” said Drew Davis, director of strategic accounts and alliances for Tripwire. “The flexibility provided by the Secured by Tripwire program for managed and cloud providers makes it possible for businesses like Connectria to deliver the security and compliance technology, analytics and reporting necessary to protect their customers’ businesses.”
