LockPath and Tripwire Announce Integration Partnership

Collaboration Will Bring Enhanced Visibility and Context to Information Security Programs

OVERLAND PARK, KS--(Marketwired - Apr 1, 2014) - LockPath, the leader of innovative governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions today announce their integration partnership with Tripwire, a leading global provider of risk-based security and compliance management solutions. Through this partnership, joint customers will benefit from the integration of Tripwire's unprecedented risk and vulnerability intelligence with LockPath's end-to-end information security data management capabilities.

"Security leaders need a deep understanding of their threat landscape in order to secure their organizations' sensitive data," said Chris Goodwin, Chief Technology Officer at LockPath. "Our partnership with Tripwire will give our joint customers both the data and context needed for a comprehensive view of their entire information security program and will promote more effective security practices."

The two companies plan to develop connectors between Tripwire's configuration analysis and vulnerability intelligence solutions -- Tripwire Enterprise and IP360 -- and LockPath's Keylight Platform. Detailed system state and vulnerability data from Tripwire's highly regarded vulnerability and security management suite will be processed, analyzed, and integrated into Keylight for tracking trends, recording key information about secured assets and creating a searchable history of activities for audits. This integration will help mutual customers become proactive in risk and vulnerability management activities and to streamline remediation processes.

"We're excited to partner with LockPath through our Technology Alliance Partner program," said Rekha Shenoy, Vice President of Corporate Development for Tripwire. "This integration allows our mutual customers to not only harden systems against threat actors, but also communicate the value of being proactive up to the executive suite and beyond. With this increased visibility our customers can make faster, more informed business decisions about security risk."
