Tripwire’s Solution for Continuous Monitoring and Risk
Management of Federal Information Systems

Tripwire delivers continuous and automated monitoring of NIST 800-53 security controls to help government agencies identify and prioritize assets, identify risk threshold, determine monitoring frequency and report to authorizing officials.

NIST SP 800-53 provides guidelines on security controls required for federal information systems. NIST SP 800-37 was released to help promote near real-time risk management through continuous monitoring of the controls defined in NIST 800-53. NIST 800-137 provides additional guidance regarding enterprise-wide reporting and monitoring using automation.
