Tripwire, Inc., a leading global provider of advanced threat, security and compliance solutions, announced the debut of Tripwire® Asset Discovery Appliances, a high-performance, easy-to-deploy device and application discovery solution. Tripwire Asset Discovery Appliances are the only solution offering built-in integration with Tripwire® Enterprise, the industry’s leading security, compliance and configuration management solution, which is trusted by more than half of all Fortune 500 companies. Tripwire solutions protect many of the largest, most sensitive networks in the world, including nine of the top 10 utilities in the U.S., eight of the top 10 global retailers and seven of the top 10 global telecommunications firms.

The Tripwire Asset Discovery Appliance provides a continuous, comprehensive profile of all hardware and software on any network, delivering both effective security configuration management and clear, uninterrupted visibility into compliance status.

Enterprises discover new security threats and exploits on their networks every day. Additionally, new assets, applications and end-point configuration changes can make previously secure assets insecure in an instant, leaving the network open to cyberattacks. In today’s agile business climate, it’s critical that any new asset added to an organization’s network is quickly discovered and profiled to avoid potential security risk. If the new asset is a “rogue” – an ill-secured or risky asset – it could open the door to a potential breach. In order to avoid compliance drift, as well as to quickly identify and remediate security vulnerabilities, organizations need a current, complete and accurate inventory of all of their assets and applications.

Key features of  Tripwire Asset Discovery Appliances include :

  • Comprehensive, continuous discovery and profiling of all network assets and applications.
  • Complete inventory of authorized and unauthorized devices and applications.
  • Correlation of at-risk application and asset changes in Tripwire Enterprise for proactive security.

“Today’s organizations and networks are extremely complex and have evolved through rapid consolidation, acquisition and business expansion,” said Brian Engle, executive director of the Retail Cyber Intelligence Sharing Center. “The rate and pace of change escalates daily, creating voids of detailed information about the assets that are connected. Managing cybersecurity risks with this degree of complexity requires exceptional visibility as well as the need to quickly discover and evaluate digital asset changes.”
