Tripwire’s dedicated policy team constantly adds to and updates the policy library to reflect changing regulations, security standards and constantly evolving IT infrastructures.

How it Works

To get configurations into a known and trusted state, Tripwire Policy Manager:

  • Performs a scan of configuration settings of the physical and virtual IT infrastructure to produce a baseline configuration state—the known state
  • Compares the baseline configuration settings against settings specified in a selected Tripwire compliance policy.
  • Generates a scorecard that shows how configurations measure up against policy
  • Allows drill down from the scorecard for specific failures and provides remediation guidance with step by step instructions to get failed configurations into a compliant, trusted state

Tripwire Policy Manager

  • Proactively hardens systems by assessing configurations against internal and external security standards, benchmarks and industry regulations
  • Continuously assesses changes against security, policy and compliance requirements for “good” vs. “bad” change and “policy drift”
  • Significant cost savings on compliance audits can occur through audit ready reporting, automated baselines and policy change tracking
