Tripwire Technology Ensures Continuous, Painless Operational Compliance

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - February 23, 2009) - Tripwire, the leading provider of configuration assessment and change auditing solutions for virtual and physical infrastructure, today announced the availability of the Tripwire Compliance Management Pack for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007. Customers who use both Tripwire Enterprise and System Center Operations Manager 2007 in their IT operations will now be able to seamlessly manage policy from a single viewpoint, ensuring continuous compliance.

"Many enterprises face compliance as a key business requirement, particularly with the focus on PCI and other security standards," said John Novak, Group Product Manager, Microsoft Corporation. "Microsoft is pleased that Tripwire has made it easy to integrate their IT compliance solution with System Center to create an industry-leading product enabling enterprises to achieve and maintain continuous compliance."

Tripwire Enterprise monitors and controls IT configurations for continuous security and compliance, helping manage IT infrastructure to established policy. When non-compliant configuration changes are made, Tripwire Enterprise shows customers these changes in System Center Operations Manager 2007, indicating what policies were affected as well as the remediation steps necessary to put the system back into a compliant state. From this single pane, users can hand-off Tripwire remediation advice to have staff manually remediate the issue, can launch Tripwire Enterprise in context for additional information, or can direct System Center Operations Manager 2007 to help remediate the issue automatically.

"Tripwire and Microsoft are focused in providing a single destination for managing heterogeneous IT environments -- across vendors and physical and virtual infrastructure," said Dwayne Melancon, vice president of Corporate Development at Tripwire. "Through the System Center management suite, Tripwire Enterprise will allow customers to measure against their security, compliance and operational policies while providing a variety of options for remediation."
