To further elevate the level of security around the vast volumes of sensitive data it handles, the customer embarked on an initiative to identify and deploy a vulnerability management solution capable of protecting its widely distributed infrastructure. A key selection criterion was the requirement for role-based access to permit each system administrator to easily view, manage and report on their individually assigned assets.
Tripwire is essential to our vulnerability management program, which has reduced the risk of exposure to numerous computer malware and attack vectors. By partnering with Tripwire, our organization is positioned to be a model for the rest of the healthcare industry.Lead Network Security Consultant, Major Healthcare Provider
