Tripwire Simplifies Security Intelligence With Current Release of Tripwire Log Center

First to Market With MITRE's Common Event Expression Provides Speed, Ease of Use and Accurate and Comprehensive Query Results

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - Apr 3, 2012) - Tripwire, Inc., a leading global provider of IT security solutions, today announced a significant update to its Tripwire® Log Center product line. Tripwire Log Center provides a log and event management solution that when combined with Tripwire Enterprise provides state-based incident detection to mitigate security risks and prove compliance.

Tripwire understands that cyber attacks and suspicious events are a constant and continuous threat to any environment. In a world where these attacks are constantly evolving, Tripwire Log Center provides a responsible approach to detect and react as quickly as possible, regardless if the threats are coming from external sources or are internally initiated. Tripwire's ability to detect incidents lets organizations respond to threats in real-time across the IT infrastructure by integrating log and event management solutions with critical information from the state of the systems.

"Tripwire constantly hears from security professionals that SIEM alone is not providing the value they are expecting," said Dwayne Melancon, CTO of Tripwire. "At Tripwire we understand those challenges and take a different approach, providing security solutions that add system state intelligence to security events to provide risk context."

One of the biggest challenges with SIEMs today is the fact that there is no standard way to define and catalogue attributes of systems and events making it impossible to truly "normalize" log and SIEM data. Recently, MITRE released the MITRE Common Event Classification System (CEE) to manage this all too common situation. By using CEE's common language and syntax, enterprise-wide log management, correlation, aggregation, auditing, and incident handling can be performed more efficiently and produce better results than was possible prior to CEE. Tripwire Log Center is the first Enterprise Security Information Management Solution to utilize MITRE's CEE for simplified compliance reporting and security forensics investigations. By using MITRE's CEE System, Tripwire Log Center users can find events quickly using common fields and classification tags, have access to accurate and more comprehensive reports, rely on simplified searches and event handling and have an overall easy to use and understand solution.

Because actions are sometimes easier to follow than words, Tripwire has created a collection of videos to describe all the benefits of Tripwire Log Center including:

  • Intelligent SIEM that Correlates Changes with Events of Interest
  • Operational Dashboard and Forensics Analysis
  • Learning from an Attack
  • Incident Detection and Analysis
  • Compliance and Management Reporting utilizing MITRE's Common Event Expression
  • Dashboards and Analysis View

All videos and demos can be accessed and viewed at
