Tripwire Debuts Tripwire® SecureScan™

RSA Booth 3501 — Tripwire, Inc., a leading global provider of risk-based security and compliance management solutions, today debuted Tripwire® SecureScan™, a free, cloud-based vulnerability management service for up to 100 Internet Protocol (IP) addresses on internal networks. This new tool makes vulnerability management – a widely recognized security best practice among large corporations – easily accessible to small and medium-sized businesses that may not have the resources for enterprise-grade security technology.

Smaller businesses generally have fewer resources to invest in security, making them extremely attractive to cyberattackers. According to Symantec, cyberattacks on small businesses rose 300 percent in 2012. Small businesses commonly rely on anti-virus software and firewalls, but these security controls, while useful, are not enough because they do not detect unpatched systems that are frequently targeted by cyberattackers.

“Our goal is to raise the bar for cybersecurity because we want to help make the Internet a safer place for everyone,” said Dwayne Melancon, chief technology officer for Tripwire. “As more individuals connect to corporate networks from remote locations, it is increasingly important to find ways to limit the risk these connections introduce to company networks. This will become even more critical as the ‘Internet of Things’ leads to more Internet-connected devices on our home networks, increasing the opportunity for compromise.”

Melancon continued: “Tripwire SecureScan makes it easy for smaller organizations to know exactly which devices are on their networks, how these devices are vulnerable and how to manage their security risks.”

Tripwire SecureScan is a comprehensive vulnerability management solution that requires no hardware or software to be installed and managed. Organizations of any size can use the service to discover detailed information about networked devices and find vulnerabilities in hardware and software applications that are used in cyberattacks. Tripwire SecureScan discovers these vulnerabilities and then provides users with prioritized, in-depth information on how to fix these security weaknesses.

Tripwire SecureScan uses the same proven enterprise-class vulnerability scanning platform behind Tripwire’s award-winning vulnerability products, Tripwire® IP360 and Tripwire PureCloud Enterprise. These products protect many of the largest, most sensitive networks in the world.

Key Tripwire SecureScan features include:

  • Easy-to-use, with no software or hardware installation required.
  • Free internal vulnerability scanning for up to 100 devices four times a month.
  • Easy discovery of lost or hidden devices that can result in security blind spots.
  • Prioritized vulnerability scoring that makes it possible to fix the most important security problems first.

"Organizations that live 'below the security poverty line' are cutting corners on security all the time," said Wendy Nather, research director, enterprise security practice at 451 Research. “They may not have the expertise to tune and use an open source tool either. Having a commercial product available to them for free can help these enterprises get a leg up -- in some cases for the first time."

Today traditional IT approaches leverage well-architected compute/networking domains to control what applications can access what data, and how. DevOps includes rapid application development/deployment leveraging concepts like containerization, third-party sourced applications and databases. Such applications need access to production data for its test and iteration cycles. Data Security? That sounds like a roadblock to DevOps vs. protecting the crown jewels to those in IT.
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality.
