Tripwire Launches Cloud Management Assessor, Giving Organizations Ability to Monitor Cloud Environments for Security Risks

An extension of Tripwire Enterprise, Cloud Management Assessor provides critical security controls for hybrid cloud environments 

PORTLAND, Ore. – June 15, 2017 – Tripwire, Inc., a leading global provider of security and compliance solutions for enterprises and industrial organizations, today announced the release of Cloud Management Assessor, an extension of its flagship Tripwire® Enterprise solution. By allowing users to scan and assess their Amazon Web Services (AWS) environments, Tripwire’s Cloud Management Assessor helps strengthen cybersecurity and maintain compliance.

As organizations continue to take advantage of cloud technologies in search of increased availability, reliability and cost-effectiveness, they must also take into consideration the new security challenges the cloud brings. Tripwire’s Cloud Management Assessor helps Tripwire Enterprise customers determine the security state of their AWS deployment by gathering, analyzing and scoring configuration data based on the Center for Internet Security AWS Foundations Benchmark.

“While cloud adoption provides many important business benefits, it presents its own set of security challenges that organizations need to be aware of and also know how to handle,” said David Meltzer, chief technology officer at Tripwire. “When moving an on-premise infrastructure to the cloud, there are parts of the environment that you no longer have visibility into. Tripwire’s Cloud Management Assessor helps organizations overcome these issues by increasing their visibility into AWS environments, which ultimately helps improve security.”

 Tripwire’s Cloud Management Assessor ensures that AWS Management Console are securely configured to prevent attacks and downtime while also monitoring for configuration changes that may affect the confidentiality, integrity or availability of a user’s cloud assets. In addition, Cloud Management Assessor delivers visibility across multiple AWS Management Consoles.

Meltzer continued: “Many organizations now operate a ‘hybrid enterprise,’ which involves a blend of physical, virtual, and private and public cloud environments. While this provides operational flexibility, it also brings additional complexity to the security landscape. Tripwire Enterprise with Cloud Management Assessor provides extended visibility and security configuration management to cloud management interfaces. The solution also manages this information in the same system being used to maintain security for on-premise environments, providing a consolidated and comprehensive approach for maintaining cybersecurity best practices and compliance for organizations adopting Amazon Web Services.”

Cloud Management Assessor builds upon Tripwire’s foundational solutions, which provide critical security controls for hybrid environments. Tripwire’s foundational security controls enable effective and efficient security, compliance and IT operations across physical, virtual, and private and public cloud environments. These advanced controls provide the same robust, industry-leading Tripwire capabilities as used on-premise for file integrity monitoring, configuration management, asset discovery, vulnerability management and log collection. Tripwire addresses the unique needs of hybrid cloud environments with unified management and support for elastic monitoring, cloud platforms and policies, and container assessment.
