Round 2; I’m back with another dose of “What others like you are doing with Tripwire!”

In my first post of the series, we focused on Tripwire IP360, our leading vulnerability and security risk management system that enables organizations to cost-effectively measure and manage their network security risk.

We’re excited to share some more results with you based on the insight we’ve gathered using TechValidate, a third-party research firm.

In the second post of this series, we’ll be focusing on Tripwire Enterprise – a security configuration management suite that provides fully integrated solutions for policy, file integrity and remediation management.

When surveying our customers, we learned the top reasons customers are utilizing this solution:


Real-Time Threat Detection For Critical Assets

One of the greatest benefits of Tripwire Enterprise is that it’s one of the only solutions that provides actual real-time detection. This solution delivers change audit and threat detection with high precision, business context and insight for what to do about it. Our customer Trion Worlds also shared their story here about an experience with real-time (like, 3 AM real-time) detection explaining how “Tripwire ruined the day, but saved the year.”

Compliance and Policy Management Enforcement

Did you know 94 percent of unauthorized data access is through compromised servers? Knowing your assets and how they’re configured for security and compliance, including file servers, databases, active directory, network devices and endpoints is extremely important.

With more than 20 unique industry-trusted policy sources, more than 300 policy-platform combinations and nearly 189,000 unique configuration tests, Tripwire has the largest out of the box selection of policies and hardening guidelines. All are available out-of-the-box, without customization and are ready to use.

Audit Readiness

Passing audits can “make it or break it” for some companies. A recent survey revealed the majority of retail businesses consider PCI compliance “the backbone of their security program,” with nearly 90 percent of respondents claiming they would be able to detect a breach within three days.

This new tool makes vulnerability management easily accessible to small and medium-sized businesses that may not have the resources for enterprise-grade security technology – and it detects the Heartbleed vulnerability.
