Security, compliance, and IT operations leaders need a powerful and effective way to accurately identify security misconfigurations and indicators of compromise. Tripwire® Enterprise is the leading compliance monitoring solution, using file integrity monitoring (FIM) and security configuration management (SCM). Backed by decades of experience, it's capable of advanced use cases unmatched by other solutions.
This fully integrated suite of solutions for policy compliance, system integrity, and remediation management reaches far beyond simple compliance. It enables teams rapidly achieve an increased level of security across the entire enterprise, including on-premises, cloud, and industrial assets.
How It Works: Powerful, Integrated Controls
Tripwire Enterprise delivers five core capabilities in a single interface that work in concert as an enterprise-class security and compliance solution:
System Integrity Management scans across large heterogeneous environments to detect threats and provides an instant view into configuration vulnerabilities—boosting ecosystem security by reducing configuration drift and unauthorized change. Tripwire File Integrity Manager is the world’s first and best FIM solution and it can be used stand-alone for granular endpoint intelligence. When used with Tripwire Policy Manager, it delivers change-triggered configuration assessment and other system-configurable responses. This turns a “passive” configuration assessment into a dynamic, continuous, and real-time defensive solution, delivering superior security awareness and accelerating your effective response.
Policy Management establishes and maintains continuous agent and agentless configuration assessment for 4,000+ combinations of platforms, security and compliance policies, standards, regulations, and vendor guidelines. Tripwire Policy Manager offers complete policy customization, waiver and exception management, automated remediation options, and prioritized policy scoring. It does all this while providing auditors easily accessible evidence of compliance, making policy status highly visible and actionable for compliance teams.
Advanced Use Cases are available thanks to the highly customizable monitoring options, real-time change detection for your most critical assets, enterprise-wide detection of emerging vulnerable files (Log4J, Spring4Shell, Text4Shell, etc.), and continual review of networking devices to meet strict hardening standards. Tripwire Enterprise is unmatched in advanced monitoring use cases, fortifying your security ecosystem.
Remediation Management works alongside Tripwire Policy Manager to supply built-in guidance to IT security and compliance teams to repair drifted, misaligned security configurations while retaining role-based management, approvals, and signoffs for repairs. This helps operations teams quickly understand what failed and how to return systems into a production-ready state— and keep them there.
- Investigation and Root Cause Drill-down gives IT security and operations teams the ability to quickly and efficiently determine what happened. Systems inevitably change as enterprises constantly revise and change their people, processes, and technologies. Tripwire Enterprise delivers granular drill-down and side-by-side historic baselines and comparisons to quickly provide investigative teams what they need to know: what changed, when, by whom and how often, along with “how” information providing an unparalleled visibility into the forensic details of changes to the environment.
Industry-leading Security and Compliance Capabilities
Tripwire Enterprise excels with your compliance requirements by delivering industry-leading compliance and audit proof. It also provides powerful security beyond compliance with deep ecosystem visibility and support for more advanced use cases—it delivers an unparalleled view of the finite details of your environment such as locating vulnerable files on servers or identifying misconfigurations of security tools. Additionally, it has capabilities to protect industrial devices, and, using the MITRE ATT&CK framework, discover evidence of adversarial behavior in your environment. Using the built-in reporting you can summarize this information at each level of detail needed for a SOC Analyst, a CISO, or even an auditor.
Reporting and Integration
Between the included audit-ready reporting, integrations to leading platforms such as ServiceNow and Splunk, and advanced security use cases, Tripwire Enterprise enables you to connect security details with business context: Always know your current security posture (and how it’s trending) to achieve corporate objectives for risk reduction. Get visibility into the security and risk trends across your enterprise—from the entire organization down to business units or single departments.
MITRE ATT&CK Framework
Developed by the MITRE corporation, the ATT&CK framework is a cybersecurity model illustrating how adversaries behave and details the tactics you should use to improve security. Using ATT&CK policy content for Tripwire Enterprise, you can detect and report on adversarial behavior in your environment—adding a new layer of defense to your security strategy. And this is only one of over 50 frameworks available in our comprehensive content library.
