Online Travel Company Takes Security Blanket From TCS

Trusted Computer Solutions : 27 August, 2010  (Application Story)
The ezRez online travel software company takes automatic lockdown tool for PCI DSS compliance from Trusted Computer Solutions
Trusted Computer Solutions (TCS) has announced that ezRez Software has implemented TCS' award-winning automated operating system lock down tool Security Blanket. The tool ensures that ezRez Software's production IT environment is compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and Center for Internet Security (CIS) standards.

ezRez Software provides customizable online travel agency functionality to some of the world's largest airlines, hotels, travel agencies and banking loyalty programs, which require strict compliancy to both the PCI DSS and CIS security standards. Every year, the Company undergoes an audit to confirm compliancy, but continuously monitors the security of its systems in support of the strict customer Service Level Agreements.

"As a strictly business-to-business company, our clients expect to always be up and running with no down time," stated Dario Ambrosini, Director of Marketing, ezRez Software. "We handle over 800,000 transactions per year and promise 99.95 percent up time. We are currently operating above that level."

"We found that Security Blanket could assess the security posture of our Red Hat and CentOS servers, identify non-compliant areas and automatically fix them in half the time versus having to do it manually," stated Jared Wright, Data Center Operations Manager, ezRez Software. "Our team is able to define custom profiles that combine PCI DSS and CIS standards, as well as harden our systems in less than two weeks. Security Blanket's additional value is the reporting functionality as it validates the system's security status. The product is now integrated into our standard server deployment process, and we will continue to use the 'one click' assessment and automated configuration features to monitor our security posture regularly."

"We are pleased that ezRez Software was able to experience immediate financial benefits from Security Blanket," stated Ed Hammersla, Chief Operating Officer, Trusted Computer Solutions. "Security Blanket has an outstanding record of providing rapid financial returns simply by automating the manual process of locking down an operating system in accordance with a variety of industry standards that include PCI DSS, CIS, DISA UNIX STIGs and FISMA, with the ability to create customized guidelines. Customers, like ezRez Software, quickly see a return on their investment as well as an elevated degree of security and consistency."
