Configuresoft “Insures” PCI-DSS Compliance Success at Mondial Assistance

ECM Provides Quick and Accurate Clean IT for Leading Travel Insurance

Provider, Successfully Ensuring Security, Regulatory and Operational


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.–(EMWNews)–Configuresoft, the world’s leading enterprise configuration management

company, today announced that Mondial Assistance US, a leading provider

of insurance and assistance services, has selected Configuresofts

Enterprise Configuration Manager (ECM) to ensure Clean IT by providing

continuous compliance with regulatory and industry requirements such as

PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) and


Information technology is an integral part of

our business, said Chris Burroughs, Vice

President, IT Infrastructure Services for Mondial Assistance. The

data provided by ECM has been invaluable. Before, every person in the

department was tasked with helping with patching and audits. Now, only

one person handles each area, which frees our time for other projects.

As a travel insurance provider for more than 100 million U.S. customers,

Mondial Assistance cannot afford costly down time. To keep systems

secure and running at peak performance, the IT staff must ensure that

all applications stay current with the latest releases and patches.

Additionally, the company needs to remain in continuous compliance. With

a growing infrastructure, monitoring the system and generating the

required reports was no longer achievable as a manual task.

Configuresoft not only enables a greater

degree of efficiency in our IT organization, but with CP&C toolkits, we

can have confidence that our systems are continuously secure and

compliant, added Burroughs.

A key factor in Mondial Assistances

selection of ECM was Configuresofts Center

for Policy & Compliance (CP&C), which is comprised of policy experts,

former auditors and contributors to Federal mandates and standards. CP&C

prepares a comprehensive series of toolkits – automated checks and

controls that include access control, audit control and access change

monitoring for Configuresoft customers.

ECMs Clean IT

compliance features allow Mondial Assistance to perpetually audit its

critical servers to ensure they meet industry-standard compliance

guidelines, said Dave Shackleford, Director

of Configuresofts Center for Policy and

Compliance. With ECM, Mondial Assistance can

easily view, assess and implement a process of continuous compliance

across its entire enterprise, effectively managing constantly evolving
