Tripwire Enterprise was selected on the basis of its effectiveness and reputation as an industry-leading security configuration management solution. Its core functionality of providing enterprise-class file integrity and policy management addressed all of the original evaluation requirements. Since deployment, however, the broad functionality of Tripwire Enterprise has been extensively leveraged, utilizing a significantly wider set of capabilities than initially required.

If I could pick only one security solution it would have to be Tripwire Enterprise. Why? Because it can do file integrity monitoring, configuration management, system hardening, discovery and optimization; it also integrates well with our other security solutions.




The expanded role of Tripwire Enterprise now embraces the delivery of system hardening to further reduce and fortify Verifone’s attack surface.

The solution’s intuitive dashboard also contributes to the ease of managing and substantiating compliance with applicable data handling and security standards. It also provides detailed vulnerability intelligence for the company’s Linux environments. Plus, many cyber crime controls for Windows and Linux devices are administered utilizing the solution’s comprehensive policy management capabilities.

The powerful Command Output Capture Rule (COCR) feature identifies previously undiscovered locations with personally identifiable information and detects suspicious activities such as unsanctioned user and domain changes, further enhancing the security team’s abilities.
