Tripwire Introduces Next Generation Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) Solution with Tripwire Log Center

Portland, OR - Jan 26, 2010 - Tripwire®, the leading global provider of IT security and compliance automation solutions, today announced a new log and event management software solution: Tripwire Log Center.  Integrated with Tripwire’s suite of industry-leading software, Tripwire Log Center is the first offering that dynamically analyzes event and change information. The result: intelligent threat control that makes it possible to achieve continuous compliance and non-stop security, without the cost and complexity associated with existing security tools.

 

When organizations fail to see the relationships between events and changes they leave themselves open to vulnerabilities and threats that could have been stopped. Tripwire Log Center provides the intelligence to recognize suspicious patterns across all events and changes. By combining event and change information, organizations get unparalleled visibility across their infrastructure. Sophisticated threat patterns are recognized instantly, so organizations can respond quickly and keep their data safe.

Traditional log management tools simply collect and store logs to meet audit requirements, but they don’t provide the intelligence needed for real-time security. Existing SIEM systems offer intelligence, but without the performance and speed organizations need to log billions of events a day. And none of the traditional log management or SIEM systems provides the visibility into events and changes like Tripwire does. This means that organizations end up compromising. Tripwire offers an alternative. Tripwire Log Center combines event and change data without compromising on intelligence, performance and scalability. This means that companies have the security solution they need to respond to threats quickly and maintain continuous compliance without the complexity of traditional log and SIEM tools.

"At Terremark, we needed a single, intelligent solution that could manage massive amounts of logs from multiple customers, servers and security devices and from locations all around the world.  We need to analyze this activity in real time and report and act upon events of interest. With Tripwire Log Center, we have a central console from which we can quickly take action on the suspicious activity: We find the important needle for our clients among the many massive haystacks of possible suspicious needles," says Pete Nicoletti, Vice President of Security Engineering at Terremark. "This intelligent capability not only helps us remain proactive in our defense against cyber attacks, but also frees up our security analysts to do what they do best, analyze and respond appropriately to real security events and protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our clients critical IT infrastructure.

Tripwire Log Center is the market’s only all-in-one solution that provides intelligent log management, without the complexity of traditional SIEM systems. It offers the speed and scale of a flat file system, capturing hundreds of thousands of events a second in real-time, while also providing database-like querying and search capabilities for quick automated reporting, without system downtime. Log and event data is available stand alone or within Tripwire Enterprise, in a single dashboard.

Used as part of the integrated Tripwire suite of products, Tripwire Log Center gives customers unparalleled visibility by combining log and event management with Tripwire’s file integrity and change intelligence capabilities.

"The security market has reached a critical inflection point. Record high cost and complexity paired with increasingly sophisticated threats have lead the market to a point where many are shifting from threat focused controls, to target focused visibility," said Joshua Corman, The 451 Group’s Research Director for the Enterprise Security Practice.  "The 451 group is encouraging an evolution and expansion from prevention to increased detection and response. If the recent Aurora events have taught us anything, our legacy anti-threat will be undermined by the reality of APTs (Advanced Persistent Threats). We should have tools to notice the changes, listen for the whispers and echoes, and maintain the vigilance to respond. This shift can only benefit vendors like Tripwire going forward."

The market leader in file integrity monitoring and configuration control, Tripwire recognizes the critical role that understanding changes in the IT environment plays in ensuring data integrity and security. The ability to identify the events that lead to or result from change, determine how it happened and whether it constitutes a threat and then remediate accordingly is the key to enabling continuous compliance, operational control and protecting critical data. Tripwire’s VIATM Suite automates security and IT compliance offering control over file and configuration changes, critical log and event data, and virtual configurations. Tripwire’s VIA Suite extends visibility, intelligence and automation across the entire IT infrastructure, allowing IT management to take control of security and prove IT compliance.

By integrating file integrity monitoring and compliance policy management with log and event management, Tripwire enables its customers to gain control of their entire IT infrastructure. More than 100 customers are already taking advantage of Tripwire Log Center’s unique blend of technologies that provide visibility, intelligence and automation without the complexity associated with traditional systems.

"Our customers need solutions that truly automate security and compliance projects to save them time and money," said Dan Schoenbaum, Chief Operating Officer of Products for Tripwire. "Adding Tripwire Log Center to our product portfolio alongside the award-winning Tripwire Enterprise product family helps customers take control of their IT infrastructure while adhering to compliance regulations defined by government and industry."
