e-Travel Achieves TruSecure Certification
Leading Online Travel Technology Provider Selects Trusecure To Ensure Business Is Conducted In A Secure Environment
HERNDON, Va.-May 20, 2002- TruSecure Corporation, a leading managed security services provider, today announced that e-Travel, the leading global provider of online travel technology, has selected TruSecure Perimeter service to secure its critical information assets from external threats. Additionally, e-Travel has completed the necessary requirements to achieve TruSecure Certification. TruSecure Certification confirms that e-Travel is effectively managing information security risk, reducing both the company’s costs and vulnerabilities.
The TruSecure Perimeter service is an integrated security program that addresses the most significant sources of external risk, providing security assurance in six major areas: electronic threats and vulnerabilities; malicious code; privacy; physical security; and human factors. TruSecure Perimeter delivers security improvement through a proprietary combination of patent-pending technology, vulnerability assessments, intelligence analysis, and expert human support to offer an integrated and cost-effective solution.
e-Travel is the market leader in providing global online travel technology and serves the needs of airlines, corporations, travel suppliers, travel agencies and portals. e-Travel offers a wide range of products and services and offers peace of mind by demonstrating a track record of success and return on investment for its customers. e-Travel has more than 300 employees and maintains offices in Boston, Nice, Madrid and Bangkok. Blue chip customers include Oracle, Qantas, Air France, Iberia, Opodo, Airbus, Gateway, Ingersoll-Rand and Daimler Chrysler.
“Customer success is our most important goal. Delivering consistently high levels of reliability, scalability and performance help us maintain the high standards that our customers expect,” said Geoffrey Teekema, CIO, e-Travel. “The TruSecure Perimeter Certification substantiates the integrity of our infrastructure and provides our customers with unquestioned confidence in our technology.”
In the TruSecure Perimeter service, TruSecure analysts visit a site to assess current risk level, then work with network administrators over a period of time to create a customized program that meets the company’s business and information security needs. TruSecure analysts repeat on-site visits twice a year. A Web-based console that ties into a proprietary database at TruSecure’s Security Operations Center (SOC), keeps track of compliance and creates a “To Do” list for security administrators. Additionally, customers are notified about new vulnerabilities through TruSecure’s Alert service.
“TruSecure Perimeter service was created for companies like e-Travel that have no tolerance for the corruption or loss of mission-critical data by malicious code exploits or human error,” said Peter Horst, senior vice president of TruSecure Corporation. “We are enabling e-Travel to leverage the people and products already in place to improve ROI on security investments so that it can focus on its core business competencies.”
