Tripwire Achieves Certified Interoperability With HP ArcSight Platform

Tripwire Enterprise Earns Coveted Common Event Format Certification From HP to Provide System State Intelligence

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - Jul 17, 2012) - Tripwire, Inc., a leading global provider of IT security solutions, today announced it has joined the HP ArcSight Technology Alliances Program and has achieved HP ArcSight Common Event Format (CEF) certification for Tripwire Enterprise. Customers can now leverage Tripwire Enterprise's richly detailed change and configuration data with HP ArcSight Enterprise Service Management (ESM) log and event management information to provide the HP ArcSight Security Intelligence and Risk Management (SIRM) platform with "system state intelligence" that better mitigates security risks and helps distinguish real threats from false positives.

Security Intelligence and Event Management (SIEM) solutions typically detect anomalies in the network but do not provide context regarding strong or weak system states. Security professionals can spend hours sifting through reams of insignificant events in the hopes of finding truly malicious activity. Using HP ArcSight ESM with Tripwire Enterprise data, users are able to dramatically improve the correlation processes by supplying the critical context needed to identify malicious activity: Tripwire Enterprise's configuration state and file change information. As part of the HP ArcSight Technology Alliances partner program, Tripwire Enterprise can provide this critical security intelligence to HP ArcSight ESM that can be rapidly implemented and delivers immediate dividends in the form of clarity and efficiency.

"This alliance between Tripwire and HP provides powerful system state intelligence for security professionals," said Dwayne Melancon, CTO of Tripwire. "By leveraging Tripwire's trusted agent, the HP ArcSight solution has visibility into critical state change information providing data context into security events. You can think of Tripwire Enterprise as SIEM's best friend."

"In today's world of imminent breaches, vulnerabilities and threats, the need to provide context and visibility using system state intelligence and configuration policy data is important," said Buck Watia, Director of Business Development, Enterprise Security, HP. "Through this alliance with Tripwire, HP ArcSight customers can leverage the contextual feedback that Tripwire Enterprise provides and respond even more efficiently and effectively to security incidents."
