PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tripwire, Inc., a leading global provider of security and compliance solutions for enterprises and industrial organizations, today announced the availability of Tripwire® Connect 3.5, a scalable enterprise-wide reporting and visualization platform that helps organizations reduce their attack surface, assure system integrity, and deliver continuous compliance more effectively and efficiently.
Designed to meet the security needs of global enterprises, Tripwire Connect 3.5 is a configurable reporting platform. It connects data from all of an organization’s instances of Tripwire Enterprise to deliver more comprehensive and timely visibility of its endpoint security state. The platform also improves the alignment of security and compliance controls with corporate objectives.
“It’s getting harder and harder for enterprises to maintain a good view of their security posture, considering the constantly evolving threat landscape, regulations, and IT environments,” said Tim Erlin, vice president of product management and strategy at Tripwire. “Tripwire Connect 3.5 reporting delivers the intelligence organizations need to stay on top of their security state and be aware of any changes that have an impact on security or compliance.”
With centralized and audience-specific reporting from Tripwire Connect 3.5, CISOs and IT security teams can immediately visualize security and risk trends across the enterprise – whether throughout the entire organization, or within specific business units, or a single department. It delivers the earliest indication of changes to the overall security state, changes to compliance, and IT security policies and configuration drift.
Tripwire Connect 3.5 also provides a prioritized list of assets currently experiencing high amounts of change, which could indicate a higher likelihood of vulnerability or compromise. This information empowers users, from front-line administrators to C-level executives, to make quicker, better decisions that contribute to their organization’s security posture.
Key features of Tripwire Connect 3.5:
Simple and secure deployment: Tripwire Connect 3.5 is an enterprise-class reporting solution on a single virtual appliance, making it cost-effective and easy to deploy. The centralized management console uses a locked down Linux-based operating system, strong encryption for communications, and frequent system and security updates.
Dynamic enterprise-wide visibility: The platform provides a central and prioritized view of the enterprise that only Tripwire offers. This provides the actionable reporting needed to adjust configurations and compliance and security controls to reduce overall enterprise cyber risk. Dashboards allow the user to select criteria and search through data that might be lost in static reporting. The dashboard and drill-down visualizations provide an enhanced feature set.
Audience-specific actionable reporting: Tripwire Connect provides audience-specific reporting, which enables enterprises to measure and track improvements over time. Customizable report templates provide at-a-glance information on the status of the enterprise’s cyber threat status and on-going initiatives.
Enables faster analysis: Incremental data transmission for all data in Tripwire Enterprise provides more timely reporting. The ability to aggregate change data reduces network bandwidth and speed analysis. In addition, high demand data fields have been added to the compliance and file integrity reports. SCM reports now include Actual vs. Expected policy configuration data.
