Why Choose Tripwire for NERC Compliance?


NERC compliance doesn’t have to be overwhelming — not if you rely on Tripwire products and our cumulative experience helping over 100 electric utilities achieve, maintain, and prove automated NERC compliance.

Accelerate Your Compliance

Tripwire NERC compliance software keeps up with the ever-changing standard so you don’t have to. Tripwire NERC CIP policies are kept current, allowing you to efficiently apply new controls to new asset classes when needed.

Automate the Toughest Tasks

Some NERC CIP requirements are more difficult than others. For CIP-007, Tripwire saves time by monitoring the status of ports and services on each critical asset. For CIP-010, Tripwire provides current compliance status and audit records. Tripwire also helps organizations successfully meet CIP-013-1.

Simplify Proof of Compliance

In addition to standard reports, auditors will often request ad hoc proof while onsite. Tripwire provides the standard out-of-the-box reporting required by NERC standards.

Cover 23 of 44 NERC CIP Requirements

The Tripwire NERC Solution Suite provides a comprehensive NERC CIP compliance management solution by offering a tailored combination of standard Tripwire products plus NERC-specific extensions and industry-experienced consultants.

Leverage Powerful Integrations

To further ease the burden of the NERC CIP audit process, Tripwire solutions can integrate with other security and compliance solutions, such as Towerline Software. This integration enables users to pull the data from Tripwire solutions to quickly identify unmapped assets using Towerline and provides additional audit reporting functionality.

Case Studies

WFEC Case Study

Western Farmers Electric Cooperative (WFEC) is a U.S. electric generation and transmission cooperative. Along with the need for NERC CIP compliance and FIM, WFEC needed a solution that would identify indicators of compromise and monitor for suspicious activity without causing service interruption. According to WFEC, “Tripwire is not resource-intensive the way anti-virus is. From my perspective, Tripwire does more than traditional antivirus does. It gives you more insight.” Learn more >

Electric Utility Case Study

This power utility, like most, has multiple installs of physical access control systems (PACS) as well as primary and backup Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. Their cybersecurity specialist spends most days completing the tasks necessary to maintain SCADA system security and NERC CIP compliance. They now use Tripwire LogCenter® to generate alarms that alert system dispatchers by internal email if any network device fails to generate a log within a specific, customizable timeframe.
