Tripwire Announces Threat Detection and Protection Integration with Palo Alto Networks

Provides comprehensive protection against advanced cyber threats

 

PORTLAND, Ore. —December 2, 2014 — Tripwire, Inc., a leading global provider of advanced threat, security and compliance solutions today announced a technology integration with Palo Alto Networks that provides mutual customers with unique detection and protection against zero-day exploits and advanced persistent threats.

Tripwire® Enterprise is a real-time endpoint threat protection solution that continuously captures, monitors and records system and file change data on a broad range of enterprise servers and endpoint platforms. Palo Alto Networks WildFireTM automatically detects new, unknown threats through dynamic analysis in a cloud-based virtual environment. Tripwire Enterprise then initiates workflow actions for remediation if the file is tagged as malware. Together, the two offerings significantly reduce the time to accurately detect, prioritize and respond to advanced threats from the network edge to endpoint systems before they compromise organizations.

The challenge of protecting enterprise networks against rapidly evolving malware and zero-day exploits that target critical enterprise systems is growing increasingly difficult. Advanced persistent threat (APT) attacks often hide in plain sight, using common applications to penetrate exterior defenses, and once inside a network, they act like day-to-day traffic while stealing targeted data.

“Advanced targeted threats are one of the most pervasive enterprise security issues,” said Rekha Shenoy, vice president of business and corporate development for Tripwire. “The Tripwire integration with Palo Alto Networks WildFire makes it possible for customers to deploy threat intelligence at enterprise scale. This integration also makes it possible to detect and respond to unknown and zero-day threats in near real time.”

Tripwire security and file integrity solutions protect over a million critical servers and endpoints, with more than 9,000 customers across 91 countries. Tripwire protects many of the largest, most sensitive IT systems and networks in the world, including nine of the top 10 utilities in the U.S., eight out of the top 10 global retailers, seven out of the top 10 global telecommunications firms and over half of the Fortune 500.
