The SC Awards, now in its 17th year, is one of the highest and most respected achievements for information technology  security professionals and organizations that work to fend off the myriad of security threats in today’s digital world.

The annual awards showcase the best solutions, services and professionals while recognizing achievements and technical excellence of security professionals in the field, innovations in the vendor and service provider communities, and the fervent work of government, commercial and nonprofit organizations.

We are excited to announce that Tripwire has been chosen as a finalist in the following categories for the SC Awards, which are to take place in San Francisco on Feb 25, 2014:


Best Risk/Policy Management Solution: These products measure, analyze and report risk, as well as, enforce and update configuration policies within the enterprise, including but not limited to network, encryption, software and hardware devices.

Contenders’ products should offer a reporting format that covers the frameworks of multiple regulatory requirements such as Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, and other industry regulations. The product features should be network-centric, providing reporting to a central administrator and allowing for companies to centrally manage the product.

Tripwire Enterprise has been selected as finalist in this category. Tripwire Enterprise is a security configuration management suite whose Policy Management, Integrity Management, and Remediation Management capabilities stand-alone capabilities or work together in a comprehensive, tightly integrated SCM solution.

Best Vulnerability Management Solution: These products perform network/device vulnerability assessment and/or penetration testing. They may use active or passive testing, and are either hardware- or software-based solutions that report vulnerabilities using some standard format/reference.

Tripwire IP360 has been selected as a finalist in this category. Tripwire IP360, the world’s leading vulnerability and risk management solution, has enabled thousands of enterprises and government agencies to cost-effectively measure and manage their security risk.

Using agentless technology, Tripwire IP360 has set the industry standard for depth and breadth of discovery and coverage. It comprehensively profiles all networked devices and includes up-to-date coverage of the latest operating systems, applications, and vulnerabilities, providing the ideal foundation for assessing every system on the network.

Tripwire IP360’s agentless architecture is designed for rapid deployment and ease of management across large, globally-distributed networks.


Best Enterprise Security Solution: This includes tools and services from all product sectors specifically designed to meet the requirements of large enterprises. The winning solution will have been a leading solution during the last two years, having helped to strengthen the IT security industry’s continued evolution. Once again, Tripwire’s solutions have been selected as finalist in this category.

Tripwire’s Security Suite portfolio provides the broadest set of foundational security controls including security configuration management, vulnerability management; file integrity monitoring, log and event management that can cover the extended enterprise, including mobile, private and public clouds, desktops, remote offices, and temporary sites while providing our customers with the actionable intelligence they need to connect security to their business and mission.

Even with that achieved, IT networks are porous and constantly shifting. The IT security solutions that protect them need continual connections to businesses that are highly dynamic and changeable. Tripwire enterprise delivers confidence.

Best Regulatory Compliance Solution: Nominated solutions should help organizations comply with specific regulatory requirements demanded of companies in the health care, retail, educational, financial services and government markets.

Solutions should also help customers meet mandates noted in such legislation as HIPAA, SOX, GLBA, FISMA, or in guidelines noted by the likes of the FFIEC or the PCI Security Standards Council. Nominees must be prepared to offer references of customers who are engaged in, or have already completed, real, fully fledged deployments, and should be ready to address specific questions posed to them during the judging process.

And again, Tripwire Enterprise has been selected as finalist in this category because the solution:

  • Proactively hardens systems based on compliance requirements
  • Prevent saudit failures by complying with standards
  • Reduces costs by preparing for and passing audits quickly

We would like to thank SC Magazine for including our cutting edge product line for consideration, and we are looking forward to the awards banquet in San Francisco. See you there!
