Tripwire Announces Expanded Virtualization Support and Flexible Deployment Options in Tripwire IP360

Tripwire, Inc., a leading global provider of risk-based security and compliance management solutions, today announced the availability of Tripwire® IP360™ version 7.3. The newly released version features expanded virtualization support as well as time saving features that enable rapid and flexible options for deployment and expansion, simplified management and faster reporting. Tripwire IP360 version 7.3 is Tripwire’s fourth release of this award-winning vulnerability management solution since acquiring nCircle in April 2013. Collectively, these releases contain dozens of improvements, including a significant expansion in vulnerability management coverage.

“Vulnerability Management is a cornerstone in any information security organization as evidenced by its position in the first four Critical Security Controls from the Council on CyberSecurity,” said Rod Murchison, vice president of product management for Tripwire. “Tripwire is devoted to helping our customers find and eliminate vulnerability risk, and this investment expanded with our acquisition of nCircle. We have continued to develop vulnerability management as a core technology and deliver valuable releases to the market throughout the past 12 months, culminating in the delivery of IP360 7.3.”

Tripwire IP360’s new virtualized appliance allows companies to maximize their hardware investments by virtualizing all or part of their vulnerability management solution for rapid deployment and scalability. The powerful, security-hardened virtual appliance can utilize a built-in device profiler as well as leverage one or more physical or virtual device profiler appliances. Organizations can employ on-premise infrastructure to protect networks of any size from vulnerability threats. Tripwire IP360 can be used with VMware ESXi, VirtualBox, VMware Workstation and VMware Fusion hypervisors.

In addition to virtualization, key features of Tripwire IP360 version 7.3 include:

  • Streamlined upgrade process for quick and easy upgrades to future IP360 versions.
  • Redesigned OS fingerprinting engine for improved operating system identification.
  • An enhanced command line interface (CLI) that includes powerful and time saving features for administrators.

“With the launch of the virtualized vulnerability management offering, Tripwire now has the most comprehensive deployment options available,” said Russ Gallery, owner of Access Technology Group. “Tripwire vulnerability management solutions address the entire market – from small organizations with Tripwire SecureScan to mid-enterprise customers, all the way to the largest enterprises in the world. Virtualized appliances are especially important in the mid-enterprise market because of the ease of deployment and a low total cost of ownership.”

Tripwire products include timely vulnerability intelligence delivered by the company's Vulnerability and Exposure Research Team (VERT). This dedicated team of world-class security and vulnerability researchers focuses unwavering attention on the changing threat environment. Tripwire's VERT identifies emerging vulnerabilities and creates unique detection signatures that are constantly updated in Tripwire vulnerability and risk management solutions – delivering unprecedented vulnerability discovery coverage. Since April 2013, new VERT coverage includes:

  • 6,238 new vulnerability detection rules.
  • 1,827 new application detection rules.
  • 75 new operating system detection rules.

“IP360 version 7.3 represents a turning point for Tripwire vulnerability management,” said Tim Erlin, Tripwire’s director of information risk and security strategy. “By introducing a new underlying platform, we can deliver new features and functionality to the market faster than ever before. These platform changes enable the immediate introduction of a new virtual appliance, the expansion of support for hypervisors through the Open Virtualization Format (OVF) and a single appliance offering that is targeted at the mid-enterprise market.”

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud.
